America first? Photos emerge of Trump-Pence 2020 campaign flags being made in China
In classic con man fashion, the candidate and president who has sworn to bring manufacturing back to the United States isn’t making any attempt to start with his own campaign.

A Chinese worker sews flags and banners for the U.S. President Donald Trump's 2020 presidential re-election campaign to be exported to the United States of America at a factory in Fuyang city, east China's Anhui province, 13 July 2018. The red, white and blue banners for U.S. President Donald Trump's second-term campaign are ready to ship, emblazoned with the words "Keep America Great!" But they are made in eastern China and soon could be hit by punitive tariffs of Trump's own making as he ratchets up a rancorous trade dispute with Beijing. At the Jiahao Flag Co Ltd in Anhui province, women operate sewing machines to hem the edges of "Trump 2020" flags the size of beach towels, while others fold and bundle them for delivery.
