Donald Trump is guilty of outsourcing jobs to China and elsewhere even as he whines about how American jobs should stay in America, and Hillary Clinton nailed him for it in a new ad.
The devastating ad is all about the Republican nominee’s 2012 appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman just before President Obama won re-election against Mitt Romney.
Letterman is grilling Trump about his clothing line, including shirts and ties.
While Trump sits there smiling, Letterman asks him where the shirts are made. Trump feigns ignorance, but the tag on the shirt easily supplies that information. The screen fades to black and the words “He knows where they’re made” flash across the screen. Letterman then tells Trump the shirts were made in Bangladesh. Trump continues to smile even though he was just outed as a giant hypocrite on national television and excuses his outsourcing by telling the audience that people in Bangladesh need jobs too.
Letterman continues on by bringing out the ties and announces that they are made in China, which causes Trump give a “you caught me” look as the audience laughs at him.
Here’s the ad via YouTube.
What the ad doesn’t show you is that prior to Trump being humiliated by Letterman he complained about China taking American jobs and whined about how the Chinese are poised to become the number one economy in the world. After Trump is outed as a big outsourcer, he continued to promote his clothing line as if nothing happened. Letterman then tells Trump to bring those jobs back from China and give them to American workers instead.
Here’s the video via YouTube.
Four years later and Trump is still using cheap foreign labor to manufacture his products while campaigning on bringing jobs back to America. Somehow, Trump’s supporters fail to see that Trump is part of the problem and is definitely not the solution.
Last week, Hillary Clinton absolutely destroyed Trump for outsourcing when she took a question from a reporter in Las Vegas.
You know, when you run for president, you need to be judged by what you have done and I think the evidence is pretty clear. Everything he’s made, he’s made somewhere else. He’s not put Americans to work. He’s imported foreign workers instead of hiring Americans at his country clubs and resorts. He has cheated contractors. I take that personally. My father was a small businessman and he got contracts…And I’ve met people who were destroyed by Donald Trump, so take a look at what he’s done, not what he says. Thank you.
Any American voter who is serious about bringing jobs back to this country from overseas should definitely rethink their choice for president if they are considering voting for Donald Trump. Because he is the outsourcer-in-chief.
