    Donald Trump Admits His Gear Has Made in China Labels - ABC News

    Donald Trump, who has repeatedly accused China of stealing manufacturing jobs from the U.S., acknowledged today that an array of Trump-branded clothes, accessories and other products are made in China.

    The real estate and casino mogul, who is considering a run for the Republican presidential nomination, blamed China for the fact that Trump ties, Trump cufflinks and even Trump teddy bears come with a "Made in China" label.

    "The answer is very simple: Because of the fact that China so manipulates their currency it makes it almost impossible for American companies to compete," Trump told ABC News.

    "You see it with all of the items you are talking about. You also see it with building products. If it continues this way, America won't have any jobs, except for taking care of the elderly."

    Ask yourself why in the world ABC news and Dianne Sawyer would take the time to attack Donald Trump two weeks before the presidential election? Trump isn't running. Don't they have any other issues to use their investigative talents on? We all know the dirty little secret though don't we? ABC and the rest of the liberal media have circled the wagons around president Hussein and they are ready to investigate, speculate and attack anyone who might be a threat to the campaign.

    That look on Trump's face was priceless, and Dave loved it.

    Seriously, how much more would a freaking tie or pair of cufflinks cost if they were made here?

    I'm getting the sewing machine out of mothballs after Xmas and I'll be making my own stuff - with fabric made here in the US.

    The Benghazi coverup, lies, etc. are probably just too complicated for them to spin into something positive for Barry.
