Trump Tariffs Spare Clothing Industry -- Including Ivanka's Chinese-Made Products


President Donald Trump enacted tariffs Friday morning on $34 billion worth of Chinese goods, affecting hundreds of products from boats to medical devices and auto parts. But the clothing industry was mostly spared from the tariffs, meaning Ivanka Trumpís foreign-made products for her fashion line will be unaffected.

While Trump rails at Harley-Davidson motorcycles for moving some production to Europe to dodge EU tariffs, the first daughter and senior White House adviser has never manufactured a single product for her Ivanka Trump brand on American soil.

And for now, it seems Chengdu Kameido Shoes in Sichuan province can continue to supply shoes for the Ivanka Trump brand as it has in the past. Itís currently bidding for a new contract to manufacture 140,000 pairs of shoes for Trumpís company, a spokesman told The South China Morning Post.

Hangzhou HS Fashion in Zhejiang province also said itís filling orders for orders for the G-III Apparel Group, which supplies shoes to Trumpís brand.

1. This is corruption from the good old days of Boss Tweed

and the Tammany Hall where graft and greed was the mainstay of politics. Trump doesn't even try to hide it, he flaunts it because he knows he can get away with anything and no one will dare to stop him. This stuff is just the beginning, Trump hasn't even begun to do his worst.
