Dad (Trump): Buy American. Daughter (Ivanka): Uh, no.

The Huffington Post examines the evidence that while her father promotes a buy-American philosophy, Ivanka Trump is dealing in China.

More than 53.5 metric tons of Ivanka Trump-branded shoes, bags, and clothes were sailing to American ports in eight shipments “even as he spoke,” according to customs receipts obtained by French news organization Agence France-Presse.

President Trump promised to bring more factory jobs to this country and accused China of stealing manufacturing work. But at least one shipment per business day of Ivanka Trump’s shoes and other offerings continues to be sent from China, according to the AFP investigation, and the Global Times reported last month that a Chinese factory has already received an order for 10,000 Ivanka Trump shoes for next season.

In fact, “almost all of her goods are made overseas,” according to the New York Times.
