White House planning 'Made in America' week

The president plans to issue a declaration Wednesday and deliver remarks on the importance of making things in the United States.

As the White House kicks off its self-proclaimed "Made in America week", shining a spotlight on products manufactured domestically, President Donald Trump's spokesman was forced Monday to defend the fact that goods bearing the Trump name are frequently produced overseas.

In matters of policy, an official also said imposing import tariffs to bolster US-made products was "on the table".

It is no secret that no matter what President Donald Trump does, people on the left will find fault with it.

In a speech, the president called for a return to America's manufacturing heyday, a reality that many economists think is highly unlikely given the increased reliance on automation in America's factories.

Trump has the lowest six-month approval rating of any president during the past 70 years, according to a ABC News/Washington Post poll released Sunday.

The United States sets "the world standard for quality and craftsmanship", Helen Ferre, the White House's director of media affairs told reporters at a briefing Sunday in Piscataway N.J., where the president is spending the weekend. "Remember in the old days, they used to have 'Made in the U.S.A.?' 'Made in America, ' but Made in the U.S.A.' We're going to start doing that again".

Spicer was asked whether the Trump Organization and Ivanka Trump brand would "commit to stop manufacturing wares overseas", ABC News reported.

White House press secretary Sean Spicer told the Wall Street Journal that the campaign will underscore the president's emphasis on reforming the tax code.

Spicer pointed out that in some cases, "the supply chains and scalability" were not present in the U.S.to manufacture certain products. Abigail Klem, who took over as brand president, told The Post that, although the brand is looking for ways to make some goods in the USA, "to do it at a large scale is now not possible".

"With respect to his own companies, obviously it's inappropriate to discuss how anything will affect his own companies", Spicer said. "So that remains the overall objective", Spicer said.
