Trump's 'Made in America' Week Really Makes You Think

White House press secretary Sean Spicer asserted that a meeting between President Donald Trump's eldest son and several Russians a year ago was about adoption policy for Russian children, despite emails Donald Trump Jr. released showing that he expected to obtain damaging information on Hillary Clinton supplied by the Kremlin. Spicer said he did not believe Cobb had vetted the president's tweet on Monday.

President Trump is back from a short trip to Paris and will kick off "Made in America" week at the White House Monday afternoon.

Asked whether it is appropriate for Ivanka Trump's brand and others like it to make products overseas, Spicer offered a defense of the companies that do so, saying "of course" there is a market in the U.S. for goods made abroad.

The White House is dubbing this week "Made in America" week and American-made products from all 50 states were at 1600 Pennsylvania Ave, including rum from Hawaii and brooms from Indiana.

He hired Cobb, an experienced white-collar attorney, who is slated to join the White House staff on July 31, according to Cobb's law firm.

Without the bureau's efforts to improve workers' rights oversees, "you're saying, basically, that it's okay for forced labor and child labor to run rampant, which undercuts our own labor force", said Nate Herman, a senior vice president for the American Apparel and Footwear Association.

The Met Office says it could produce as much as one to two inches (25 to 50 mm) of rain along the path of the system. Many places will miss the thunderstorms, but those affected could see some localised flooding of homes and roads.

The Trump campaign's FEC filing also shows payments to other companies for "legal consulting" since April.

Last week, the Trump administration raised more than a few eyebrows by declaring the next few days "Made In America" week - even though some of Trump's companies produce products overseas. "You have the water, you have the steaks, you have the airline that I sold". On Friday, a prominent Russian-American lobbyist said that he, too, had been part of the discussion.

On the economic front, the White House is now working on passing health care reform, followed up by tax reform and then an infrastructure bill.

The biggest showpiece so far of his "hire America" agenda came in April at the headquarters of toolmaker Snap-on in Kenosha, Wisconsin, when he signed an executive order stating that federal agencies should "maximize, consistent with law. the use of goods, products, and materials produced in the United States". Just 36 percent of Americans polled in a new ABC News/Washington Post poll approve of Trump's job performance, down 6 points from his 100-day mark, itself a low. At first, the meeting was said to be about a Russian adoption program. Cobb is expected to play a public role, crafting official White House responses to developments.

"To say buy America it means you want to encourage people to buy American", Moore stated.
