Trump's "Made In America" Week Makes Him A Target For Ridicule

The other issue with the theme weeks (aside from the fact that July 23 - July 30 is Shark Week, not American Heroes week), is that the person who has the biggest problem staying on message is the president himself.

And later this week, President Trump is expected to reiterate the importance of American manufacturing as he commissions a new aircraft carrier in Virginia.

The White House hopes "Made in America" week can draw attention to actions the administration has taken that officials believe help USA manufacturing or promote the interests of US workers, such as withdrawing the United States from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, moving to renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement or removing a series of environmental and other regulations. Those products, despite Trump's continued admonishment of companies that send manufacturing jobs abroad, continue to be made overseas.

The White House announced three more weeks' worth of messaging centered on specific themes Sunday, with the focus this week on U.S. manufacturing.

Asked at Sunday's briefing whether "Made in America" week would include a commitment from the Trump Organization or Ivanka Trump's company to make more of their products in the United States, Ferre told reporters, "We'll get back to you on that".

The Washington Post's Philip Rucker pointed out that at least a dozen other countries manufacture products marketed under the Trump brand.

Sounds like the Trump Administration is looking to play games with the American people once again.

Following a week where Russian Federation revelations and criticism of Senate Republicans' efforts to repeal and replace Obamacare dominated the headlines, the White House hoped to change the narrative by declaring a "Made in America" week. "Every day and every week, in a sense, is a health care week", a senior administration official told reporters. The "Made in America" theme is the first of the three-week campaign followed by an "American Heroes" week and ending with "American Dream".
