President Trump wants more products to be stamped with “Made in America” again, but on Monday, the White House wouldn't say he was willing to apply that standard to the products sold by his companies or those of his daughter Ivanka Trump.

To launch “Made in America” week, President Trump showcased products made in all 50 states. He argued that making products in the United States was an act of patriotism and national security.

“Remember the old days? We used to have 'Made in the USA,' 'Made in America,' ” Trump said at the White House event. “We're going to start doing that again. We're going to put that brand on our product because it means it's the best.”

“When we purchase products made in the U.S.A., the profits stay here, the revenue stays here and the jobs, maybe most importantly of all, they stay right here in the U.S.,” he continued.

But a Washington Post investigation last week found that many of Trump's own products are made overseas and the products sold by his daughter Ivanka Trump's companies are also similarly made in countries such as China, Bangladesh and Indonesia.
