    https://www.politifact.com/facebook...ump-re-election-banners-are-being-made-china/

    Our ruling

    A Facebook post shows a picture of a Chinese factory worker making "one of the 90,000" Trump 2020 re-election banners and accuses the "America First" president of hiring Chinese workers over American workers.

    The photograph is authentic. There have been at least 90,000 Trump 2020 re-election materials produced in China, and at a rapid rate as U.S. tariffs loom over the country.

    While pictures and interviews show the items are indeed being made in a Chinese factory, there is not enough information to link it to Trump’s campaign. Moreover, not only did the Trump campaign deny they ordered the items and called the flags counterfeit, FEC data for the campaign’s expenditures does not include any Chinese companies.

    The statement has an element of truth — there are thousands of Trump re-election items being made in China – but, based on what we know now, claiming that the president is behind the production without proof falls short.


    We rate this claim Mostly False.

    Yeah, cause China routinely makes campaign items just for the fun of it, lol. And as far as the trump administration denying it, gotta believe them right cause they have never lied before.

    I have it on good authority that one of @MARIS61 's foreign subsidiaries is footing the entire bill. As mentioned in the link I shared, the Trump campaign has no knowledge of this activity. Good on MARIS!!

    Just pointing out that it's an old article.

    Also, like the Politifact article pointed out, when I was in Vegas last week there was a ton of Trump and MAGA crap in the cheaper gift shops. All of it made in China but I'm positive that Trump or his campaign will not see any of the money from it. Which I thought was funny.

    Go to a local cheap minimart or a place like Top to Bottom on 82nd ave, they sell sport teams clothing and hats. Those are cheap knockoffs and the teams do not get a dime from them. It's similar to that. When a tourist trap in Vegas is selling 4 t-shirts for $10 I guarantee you that Trump or his campaign isn't getting a dime from them.

    Everyone knows they can't get the spelling correct with American knockoffs made in China.....You can buy a T shirt there with Charlie Brown and Snoopy and below it it says...Chmrlif and Snapfly or you could buy the fake leather jacket with Goody Two Sporty Boys Club patches
