Default Make (insert country name here) Great Again!

President Donald Trump has declared this week Made in America week, a celebration of United States-based manufacturing and domestic economic consumption.

Finding the gift shop in the Trump International Hotel Washington, D.C. is not easy. It’s tucked behind the hotel itself, around a Starbucks and past a table that alerts visitors that no firearms are permitted past that point. On Monday morning, no one was permitted in before 9 a.m.
It’s a small room and the first impression you get, upon entering, is that the proprietors are indeed imbued with a patriotic spirit. The “Trump Washington D.C.” — replete with the Trump family insignia — that hangs from the racks at the entrance is made in the US of A. It costs you $32 but, to be fair, it’s 100% cotton.


That’s basically the extent of the American-made products though. Walk a few feet further in and you will find a child’s bib on sale for $30 that is made in Peru; or a Trump golf hat for $32 that is made in Bangladesh; or a fleece pullover (yes, with “Trump” on it) for $50 that is made in Pakistan; or another type of golf hat for $32 that is made in China; or a Greg Norman golf pullover that goes for $80 that is made in Vietnam; or a kid’s t-shirt for $35 that is also made in Peru; or $15 worth of body butter that is made in Canada, which you could couple with the $15 Trump conditioner that is also made by our neighbors to the north.

I heard Trump was going to do an "American products" theme this week and the FIRST thing I thought was "The Left will attack."...

His rhetoric does not match his actions. IOW he's the classic "do as I say not as I do" example.

Pointing out things Trump says and does is an unfair liberal attack.

Here we go. The self proclaimed party of the little guy including factory workers cannot celebrate American manufacturing because of their reflexive hatred for Trump. Just as they erupted in sour condemnations at every successful lobbying effort our President made to keep jobs here or attract investment to create new ones, they now whine about gift shop merchandise to deflect attention from American manufacturing.

Oh wait, the only American manufacturing the Left is subsidized by tax dollars. Tesla with its $100K cars and politically connected green energy corporate welfare cases are wonderful.

Yes, Russian Ties are REAL!



Aside from being a great novelty necktie, this is a quality tie featuring a soft microfiber finish. Fully lined and bar tacked at both ends it represents great quality as well as content! Tie measures 3 1/8" wide.

Buy this as a gag gift for Dems and Republicans alike, or make a political statement & keep it as a collector’s item that reflects this era. Don't miss out on getting a commemorative piece of history!

Some extra points to ponder about this tie:

Russian Ties™ are designed to make it simple to tape the backing (Scotch™ Tape sold separately!)

You can tie this tie extra long so that it hangs down to mid-zipper level

In the right light and if you squint, it looks like a giant exclamation point!

Ladies, the Annie Hall look is making a comeback!

“This may be the best gift ever invented!” - the Tie’s Creator
