Talk display host Jimmy Kimmel said he is prepared to launch a federal complaint against Leader Trump’s family store after finding that most of the merchandise was produced overseas.
On Wednesday, the sponsor of “Jimmy Kimmel Live! inch questioned the president’s trademark slogan of American made products by purchasing many items from the Trump store, that is run by the president’s sons.
Joking which the Trump family takes the “American thing very seriously, ” Kimmel expected to find that the merchandise from the American-bred store would feature all-American produced products. But to his shock, the host found that most from the items he purchased from the Trump store were made abroad.
Kimmel showed off a collection of items which he purchased from the Trump shop website including a Trump golfing hat, a porcelain coffee cup, a duffle bag, a quilt and a baby’s feeding bib, that have been all made in the countries associated with China, Thailand and Peru.
The web host also identified “an official Trump pet banana” which did not function any tags saying where it had been made. Kimmel then stated it had been illegal and told the target audience that he researched untagged items plus learned that items imported to the Claims are required to display a country associated with origin according to U. S. Traditions and Border Protection.
“ I’ lmost all just file an official complaint plus let them sort it out, ” he said about the Trump store’s unidentified items stating that “companies can face up to $500, 000 within fines per violation” if items that were made overseas do not function tags that say so.
“ This could be very expensive, ” Kimmel joked, then said, “ Not to mention disturbing. Are they even capable of shame? I am talking about Trump’ s whole platform is all about American companies, his company isn’ t even supporting America! ”
Of all of the items Kimmel purchased from the Trump store, only one item came near to boasting an American-made tag. The particular Trump golf club cover was completely made in China but decorated in the us.
