Those tariffs #45 wants imposed on Chinese-produced goods...

Ivanka's goods produced in China are exempt.

It's good to be the king's daughter!

Ivanka Trump’s Chinese-Produced Clothing Exempt From New Tariffs:

"...Trump announced the first round of tariffs against Chinese steel and aluminum industries on March 1. In response, China announced its first round of tariffs against 120 American products–including many consumer products–at the beginning of April. 

Each round of tariffs was worth an estimated $50 billion. Trump eventually responded in turn–by announcing widespread tariffs against various Chinese industries. One Chinese industry that is notably not subject to those new U.S. tariffs, however, is the clothing manufacturing industry. 

According to a... report in the Washington Post: Many of the products branded by Ivanka Trump’s fashion and clothing line are manufactured in China. And China recently approved three new trademarks for Ivanka Trump’s brand there–on the same day she dined with Chinese President Xi Jinping in her official capacity as White House advisor. 

 Exempting clothing from the new round of U.S. tariffs therefore stands to immensely benefit the value of Ivanka Trump’s personal brand. Meanwhile, domestic clothing manufacturers have cried foul.

The nepotism and using the office of the POTUS by Ivanka to receive special favors for her businesses in China stinks like a cesspool.

#45 didn't drain the Swamp, he added more creatures to it. 


On a humorous note, this poll was shown on FAUX NOOZ before Howard Kurtz yelled "Take it down!"

Shaw... word, from the conspiracy theorists on the street is that the graphic you have was shown by someone in the FOX chain determined to embarrass Trump. I also saw that later in the show they actually referenced that very graphic. But it is funny that it came up at the moment.

No matter, the showing of that graphic can be best explained as FOX accidentally telling its viewers the truth.

Dave, I can understand why #45's supporters would be horrified at seeing the truth about FAUX NOOZ. It is, after all, where Trump finds subjects to Tweet out, and now the FAUXers know how little the American people trust not just President Spanky, but his nooz source as well.

Meanwhile, tRump is acknowledging that the pork and soybean farmers are going to bear the brunt but they're "good patriots".

No word from the farmers who are probably praying Lord Dampnut comes to his senses.

Meanwhile, a sitting Pres is under active investigation as his lawyers office is raided by a Trump appointed federal prosecutor...

As in never before...

Such winning!
