>> *Trump home items*
>>
>> Trump Home <http://www.trump.com/merchandise/trump-home/> has a range of
>> items, including chandeliers, mirrors, bedding, table lamps, cabinets,
>> sofas, barstools, cocktail tables and more.
>>
>> Trump expanded the Trump Home brand internationally, including in Turkey.
>> A Trump Organization news release
>> <http://www.trumphomebydorya.com/pages/trump-home-press-releases> shows
>> it partnered with a global luxury furniture brand, Dorya International, to
>> expand the Trump Home brand to a production facility in Turkey. According
>> to Furniture Today
>> <http://www.furnituretoday.com/article/524877-dorya-expands-trump-line>,
>> components of the Trump by Dorya furniture were made in Germany,
>> particularly the brass and stainless pieces.

>> Several Trump Home items are listed as made in China or imported from

>> .
>>
>> *Trump hotel items*
>>
>> Many hotel amenities at Trump’s hotels were manufactured overseas and
>> imported. Trump Hotel pens were made in China or Taiwan, and imported into
>> the United States via South Korea. Shampoo, body wash, moisturizers, shower
>> caps, laundry bags, show bags, pet collars, pet leashes and bath towels at
>> Trump hotels are all listed as made in China.
>>
>> *Trump beverages*
>>
>> The Trump Natural Spring Water
>> <http://www.trump.com/merchandise/trump-natural-spring-water/> is served
>> at Trump hotels, restaurants and golf clubs. Trump water comesfrom New
>> York or Vermont
>> <http://www.aquagrade.com/bottle/trump-ice-natural-spring-water/>, and is
>> bottled in New York.
>>
>> Trump Vodka was manufactured
>> <http://www.bloomberg.com/features/2016-trump-vodka/> at a distillery in
>> the Netherlands, supposedly distilled five times from “European wheat,” but
>> the distribution company stopped carrying it in 2010. An Israeli company
>> continued to carry Trump Vodka, although the version sold in Israel is
>> different from the original Trump Vodka. The Trump Vodka produced and sold
>> in Israel is made from ingredients that make it kosher for Passover, which
>> made it a popular beverage around the holidays. But the Jerusalem Post
>> reported
>> <http://www.jpost.com/Not-Just-News/Podcast/Exclusive-Some-Trump-Vodka-popular-as-kosher-for-Passover-spirit-may-not-be-kosher-450568>
>> that it turned out that not all ingredients actually were kosher for
>> Passover.
>>
>> Note: There’s a Trump Winery located in Charlottesville, Va., but it is
>> reported to be owned by his son, Eric. The Trump Winery website
>> <http://www.trumpwinery.com/legal/> says its name is a registered
>> trademark of Eric Trump Wine Manufacturing, LLC. The winery
>> imports glassware.
>>
>>
>> *The Bottom Line* The Clinton ad claims that “Trump’s products have been
>> made in 12 other countries.” This is correct. We know of at least 12
>> countries where Trump products were manufactured (China, the Netherlands,
>> Mexico, India, Turkey, Slovenia, Honduras, Germany, Bangladesh, Indonesia,
>> Vietnam and South Korea). Further, Trump products transited other countries
>> through the packaging and shipping process — meaning workers in more than
>> 12 countries contributed to getting many of Trump’s products made, packaged
>> and delivered to the United States.
>>
>> As our inventory shows, manufacturing is a global process. Components of a
>> product of an American company are made in different parts of the world,
>> depending on who offers the most competitive prices, and ultimately
>> imported into the country to be sold to American consumers. It’s not as
>> simple as deciding not to eat an Oreo because Nabisco found a cheaper place
>> to employ some of its workers.
>>
>> Trump’s practice as a businessman is not consistent with his current
>> rhetoric against trade as a presidential nominee — this vulnerability is
>> backed with more than enough factual evidence. If Trump brand customers
>> took the same stance against his products as he did against Nabisco, it is
>> clear they would be left with few Trump items to buy. However, we do know
>> of at least four Trump products made in the United States: “Make America
>> Great Again” hats, bedding, water and cologne.
