Jimmy Kimmel is just a concerned consumer who wants to know that the goods he purchases are made in America. And that may end up costing the Trumps.
On Wednesday night’s episode of “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” the host revealed that he went on a little shopping spree at the Trump Organization’s official online store to see where all the Trump-branded merchandise is actually made.
“Trump, as you know, wants to focus on America. American-made products and goods,” explained Kimmel. “So I wondered — because I agree with that — how things were going on his family website, trumpstore.com.”
Kimmel was certain that Eric and Donald Trump Jr., who run the online shop, “take this American thing very seriously” since the brothers are so patriotic “they’re like a couple of flags wearing hair gel.”
But it turns out not a lot of those products were actually made in America.
A Trump-branded golf hat, coffee mug, duffel bag, bib — item after item of Kimmel’s order was revealed to be made in places including China, Thailand and Peru.
A couple of items actually did not list a country of origin, which could be against federal law. The government fines companies that fail to disclose any imported product’s origins.
“This could be very expensive, not to mention, this has got to be embarrassing,” said Kimmel. “Trump’s whole platform is about supporting American companies. His company isn’t even supporting America.”
But Kimmel was sure the missing product labels were just “a simple oversight” on the part of the Trumps.
“I’ll just file an official complaint and I’ll let them sort it out,” concluded Kimmel.
