Trump's Signature Collection Shirt
Trump's "Signature Collection" shirts are not made in the USA. Surprised? They are made sometimes in China, sometimes in Bangladesh, or sometimes they are said to be "Imported". But, as he proudly claims, he's smart to take advantage of the law to make a profit. In this case even if that profit comes at the expense of children laboring in Asian sweatshops.
This particular shirt, surprisingly, was hanging on a rack in this Burlington store. I say, "surprisingly," because I've never seen a Trump shirt of any kind before. Burlington is noted for marking down their merchandise to somewhat "affordable" prices. This store is relatively new to Ocala and we've shopped there a few times. I never buy much, though, as I can get higher quality at cheaper prices at the high-end shops when they have a sale.
In addition, the Burlington store in Fort Lauderdale, Florida (actually in Sunrise, Florida) got in trouble as few years back for selling goods with faux labels. In other words the goods you were buying were not what they claimed to be. I can't remember the resolution of the case, unfortunately.
