Collins praises Trump executive order on 'Buy American'

posted by Howard B. Owens in chris collins, trade, news, NY-27.

Press release:

Congressman Chris Collins (NY-27) today released the following statement after President Trump signed an executive order to support American manufacturing and bolster America’s job growth.

“In implementing a ‘Buy American, Hire American’ federal initiative, President Trump has delivered on one of his most important promises to the American people. Voters here in Western New York supported President Trump because for too long, status quo politicians have put the economic interests of foreign nations ahead of our own and have left too many promises unfulfilled.

"If we want our community and our country to succeed, we need to put people back to work and get back to ‘Made in America.’ Today’s executive action is a significant step in accomplishing those goals. I commend President Trump for putting America first and working to bring our jobs home."

OMG Chris! Could you be any more of an a$$ kissing doofus?
If trump and his idiot spawn REALLY cared about hiring Americans, they would manufacture their crappy products IN the US instead of China, Mexico, Vietnam, etc., and they would hire Americans to work at his crappy golf courses and Eric's $hitty winery.

I mean come on!!

I go out of my way to buy American made. It is hard to find American made blue jeans or, bib overalls locally. Online is a viable option. Diamond Gusset is American made, and it is best to purchase them when on sale.

I recently found a company called Roundhouse, located in Shawnee, Oklahoma. They've been making blue jeans and similar 100% Made in America products for 110 years.

If you're brand conscious, give them a try as they're comparable in price to Levi's.

Ivanka Trumps clothing line is manufactured in China. I've seen the sweaters with the tag "made in China" in Marshall's. What a bunch of hypocrites this administration is. Among other things.
