    Sorry, @Davocrat

    Trump's ties are not made in Europe.

    They're made in China.

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/...ump-businesses

    “We don’t need Chinese products,” Trump told Fox News in 2010. “The stuff that’s been sent over from China is – it falls apart after a year and a half. It’s crap.”

    It was an odd thing to say for a self-described master businessman offering to the American public many menswear products – featured in the Donald J Trump Signature Collection – that were made in China.

    Donald J Trump eyeglasses were made in China. Donald Trump’s ties were made in China. Some of the Donald J Trump suits were made in China.

    To be fair, Trump is an equal opportunity overseas manufacturer. His dress shirts have been manufactured in Bangladesh, Honduras and Vietnam. And China.

    No, just doesn't know that we can tell he's not buying American.

    Nope. It's all ties. Look at the labels.

    Yes. He's all about brining Big Cravat back to the US. Along with steel and coal.

    Also, I learned about this in the early 80s when I started buying my own suits.

    Also there's this: Un-American? Obama's Ties Of A Different Stripe - GraniteGrok ? GraniteGrok

    Un-American? Obama’s Ties Of A Different Stripe

    by MIKE


    Ties of a different slant
    Barry = Euro; Joe = USA
    Many people, looking at the almost matching outfits of Obama and Biden during yesterday’s non-announcement, saw either too cute, or uncomfortably close coordination of outfits – something just a little, well, creepy. See Twitchy.com

    Of course, Trump's white, so you don't care now.

    I'm guessing she's had a little more experience than he's had. Come to think of it she's had more experience at that than either you or I.
