Donald Trump's Labels Often State 'Made in China'

In exploring a run for president Donald Trump has repeatedly accused China of taking manufacturing jobs from the U.S., saying "the problem with our country is that we don't make anything anymore."

But an array of Trump-branded products from ties, dress shirts and other clothing in the Donald J. Trump Signature Collection, to hats, stuffed animals, cufflinks and tie clips are stamped "Made in China."

Visitors to the Trump Store in the lobby of the Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue in New York City, or to the displays of Trump clothing at Macy's in New York?s Herald Square, would be hard-pressed to find much labeled "Made in the U.S.A."

Trump, a Republican, has made the flow of U.S. jobs overseas, especially to China, as much a centerpiece of his exploratory campaign as his questions about whether President Obama was born in America.
