Donald Trump tells CNN in the video above: "When it comes to manufacturing, China is making all of these products. And they could be made in North Carolina, they could be made in Alabama, they could be made in lots of our places. And right now they’re not. Personally, I’d tax China very, very heavily."
MP: First, a clarification for The Donald: "Personally, I’d tax
China American consumers and businesses who voluntarily decide to purchase products made in China for their price and/or value very, very heavily."
Then there's Exhibit A
below of The Donald's gross hypocrisy, a "Made in China" label on one of his shirts being sold in a Manhattan Macy's about a year ago, via Salon
, featured on CD about a year ago
And now here's Exhibit B
below, a "Made in China" label on a Trump tie being sold at a Macy's in Fairfax, via Don Boudreaux
at Cafe Hayek.
The obvious questions for The Donald are: "Couldn't his clothing be made in North Carolina or Alabama?" and "Shouldn't his 'Made in China' clothing be heavily taxed with import tariffs?"
