White House can't explain why Trump products aren't 'Made in America'

Even though plenty of the merchandise sold by President Donald Trump's companies are made overseas, Trump hosted a "Made in America Product Showcase" at the White House on Monday to tout products made in each of the 50 states.

The hat presented to Trump was an "El Presidente" - a fur felt hat customized with the presidential seal and the president's name and "Make America Great Again" campaign slogan, according to the head of Stetson Dustin Noblitt.

The diverging interests began to emerge more clearly during last week's fallout over a June 2016 meeting with a Russian attorney that both the president's son and his son-in-law attended during the heat of the presidential campaign.

"Are they still doing aluminum in high school?" the president asked.

"If you're going to preach something, start at home", Schumer said on the Senate floor. "There's nothing better than making something here and selling something overseas".

"When you have somebody who is a family member and other people in the White House have a disagreement with that person, you're no longer disagreeing with a co-worker, now you're disagreeing with the president's daughter", he said. The lone Texas company was Stetson Hats, which gave the president a custom-made Cowboy hat.

The White House confirmed Cobb's appointment as special counsel on the president's staff in a statement Saturday.

All 50 states were represented.

The latest weekly-themed campaign of the six-month-old Trump administration (and there are more to come in the next few weeks) is meant to highlight the importance of US manufacturing and tout its policies to bring more such jobs back from overseas.

"Made in America" week is the first in a series of three consecutive themed weeks announced by the White House. For example, Gracy said he wasn't able to find USA -made promotional T-shirts and hats that his company could afford.

After a week of highlighting American-made products, next week is called "American Heroes" week - and is expected to focus on American jobs.

Murphy said he met with representatives of Sikorsky and also baker Pepperidge Farm, which is based in Norwalk. "And there was nothing, as far as we know, that would lead anyone to believe that there was anything except for a discussion about adoption and the Magnitsky Act", Spicer said at an off-camera briefing with reporters.

Trump has signed an executive order aimed at ending an "abusive" use of waivers and exceptions to federal "Buy America" laws and ordered an audit to determine how many waivers have been granted.
