US president Donald Trump is facing criticism from opponents because his family businesses outsource product manufacturing to nations such as Bangladesh, China, India and Mexico, The Hindustan Times reports.
It details: Trump has pushed for “Made in America” products to fight “unfair” and “stupid” trade practices amid criticism that his family business outsources product manufacturing to countries such as India, China and Bangladesh.
"However, his push for Made in America received some criticism from political opponents, who alleged that his family businesses are still selling products made overseas, including from India, China and Bangladesh."
“Where are the shirts made? Bangladesh. Where are the ties made? China,” the Times quoted a tweet by Matthew Wagner, the communication director of Senate minority leader Chuck Schumer.
“Trump’s DC hotel sells clothes made in China, Vietnam, Peru, Bangladesh and Pakistan during Made in America,” said another tweet.
“Trump organisation continues to outsource much of its product manufacturing to Bangladesh, China & Mexico,” the Times said referring to the twitter message of congressman Dan Kildee.
“After all, he has shirts made in China and Bangladesh and India. Other products made - like Trump vodka made in the Netherlands,” the newspaper quoted a reporter as saying.
