Mainstream Media CNN Fake News Get Trump

This week the White House is hosting Made in America week, several days of blatant hypocrisy when the president and his daughter, also one of his closest advisers, will pretend to care about making products here while they make millions from products made somewhere else.

Asked whether the president would use his "Made in America" week to commit the Trump organization and his daughter's brand to make more of their products in America, rather than overseas, Ferre was non-committal.

Since taking office, the Trump Administration has pulled the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, initiated a renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement, instigated a review of all trade agreements and backed out of the Paris climate accord in what it sees an effort to protect American jobs.

The president also is expected to issue a proclamation Wednesday on the importance of making goods in America, and will travel to Virginia on Saturday for the commissioning of the USS Gerald R. Ford, a new aircraft carrier.

But Dr Hirano, 55, believes his experimental theory could give Charlie "11% to 56% chance of clinically meaningful improvement". An American neurosurgeon who offered to treat Charlie is due to be among specialists gathering at the hospital.

"The president's agenda - regulatory relief and tax relief - are focused on trying to make sure that all companies can hire here, can expand here, can manufacture here", Spicer said.

Mr. Trump hosted a "Made in America" event at the White House Monday to showcase products made in all 50 states, from Arizona's Ping golf clubs to Tennessee's Gibson guitars.

"As part of "Made in America" week, if the Trump Organization or Ivanka Trump's brands will make any kind of commitment to stop manufacturing gifts, clothes and other wares overseas", a reporter asked during the daily press briefing, which was not allowed to be televised. These factories employ low-wage workers in countries such as Indonesia, China, and Bangladesh.

In keeping with its America First platform, the White House has declared this week "Made in America" week. To this she responded by saying that she will get back to the question with a reply.
