WASHINGTON: Donald Trump has made global trade a major issue in his
presidential campaign, accusing US companies of hurting our economy by
moving jobs abroad to benefit from cheap labour.

But it turns out that Trump, who has called some of his opponents
hypocrites, is an even bigger hypocrite on this issue.

 



After he negotiated a lucrative merchandise-licensing deal with clothing
manufacturer Phillips-Van Heusen to make a line of Trump clothing and
accessories, it was learned that his products were made in low-wage
countries such as China, Bangladesh and Honduras.

 

People with an intimate knowledge of the deal said that while Trump was
deeply involved in negotiating the terms, he expressed no interest in
where the Trump Collection of shirts, suits and other apparel were to be
manufactured, according to a report Monday in The Washington Post,
reports townhall.com.

 

"Finding the biggest company with the best practices is what was
important to him," said Jeff Danzer, who was vice president of the
company that Trump hired to broker the deal. "Finding a company that
made in America was never something that was specified."

 

Another person who participated in the negotiations, who did not wish to
be identified, said Trump was very much involved in the overseas
manufacturing discussions and confirmed what Danzer said. "I can tell
you that in none of the meetings did it come up," he said.

 

Sending jobs overseas apparently runs in the Trump family and has
significantly added to their wealth. The real estate billionaire's
daughter, Ivanka, a vice president of the Trump firm, sells her own line
of jewelry and women's clothing, much of it manufactured in China.

 

Meantime, while he's been making himself richer with Third World labor,
he's has been mercilessly flogging any and every U.S. company that is
doing the same thing. He has attacked the Ford Motor Co. for opening up
factories in Mexico and Nabisco for moving some of its cookie production
there as well.

 

After the Carrier air conditioner manufacturer announced it was moving
its plant from Indiana to Monterrey, Mexico, Trump said, "We cannot
allow this to keep happening. It will not happen under my watch."

While he has no problem making Trump shirts and suits in China, he is
exploiting the issue that he knows will make him popular among organized
labor and its workers. And he seems to be getting away with it.

 

Last year he told CNN that China's workers were "paid a lot less and the
standards are worse when it comes to the environment and health care and
worker safety."

His rivals for the Republican presidential nomination have attacked him
for his double standard, but they have failed to make a dent in Trump's
working-class support.-Asfar
