Trump Participates in 'Made in America' Showcase at the White House

Despite being repeatedly slammed for not living up to his words, Trump has made the idea of American manufacturing a common refrain in his presidency.

A White House official wouldn't say if the president would encourage his daughter to make her products in the U.S.

At one point or another, Trump has also promised tariffs on goods made in Mexico and China to level the playing field for goods that are made in America.

Campbell Soup Co. is representing New Jersey on Monday at a "Made in America" product showcase at the White House.

"Certain industries we don't do as much anymore in terms of scalability", Spicer added. "Their interests were pushed aside for global projects and their wealth was taken from the communities and shipped overseas", said White House director of media affairs Helen Aguirre Ferre.

Trump will be on the South Lawn of the White House to ring in the week, which was created to show off the products made by American workers.

The White House said Monday that nobody knows better than President Trump, whose name brands of shirts and ties have been made in places such as China or Indonesia, how hard it is to manufacture products in the U.S.

But critics have accused Mr. Trump of hypocrisy when he's pushed "Made in America" in the past because so numerous products he and his family members have sold over the years were manufactured overseas. Some of the Trump family's products, as Walker noted, are manufactured in other countries.

So they won't be celebrating any of their products this week because they don't meet America's "world standard for quality and craftsmanship".

President Trump and his daughter Ivanka have been slammed for making their products overseas. A recent Washington Post investigation revealed that Ivanka's company outsources production to factories in Bangladesh, Indonesia and China.

"We'll get back to you on that", she said.
