Does Donald Trump realize how absurd it is that he is loudly advocating "Made in America," while at the same time he and his daughter Ivanka continue to, and unhesitatingly acknowledge that they readily employ people in Mexico, Bangladesh, Indonesia, as well as other countries, to make their products? These employees work long and hard hours for a pittance of a salary, and of course the Trumps make millions on their sales.

As our president, it would be admirable if he set the example, but the message we are getting in this instance is "Do What I Say, not What I Do." We should all remember that what we do speaks louder than what we say.
