Donald Trump Shirts Made in India

I get a chuckle out of the presidential debates.  Trump is correct that current policies force companies to look overseas to have things manufactured.  I believe he is dead wrong about wanting a tariff.  

Rather than start a trade war with his proposed 35% tariff that he would have to pay making his own good overseas, why not find some way to lower the taxes to zero for PROFITS on ALL GOODS manufactured in the US. by corporations?  Pass the profits on to workers and shareholders and tax them!

One of two Trump shirts I still have that I bought at closeout from Macys many years ago.
The shirts are decent quality much like any of the other "name brands" sold at Macy's but those are not much different than the house brand polo shirts with pockets from Kohl's either.

Here is exchange from a recent debate
RUBIO: Yeah, a couple points. If he builds the wall the way he built Trump Towers, he'll be using illegal immigrant labor to do it. The second--

TRUMP: Such a cute sound bite.

RUBIO: But it -- no, it's not a sound bite. It's a fact. Again, go online and Google it. Donald Trump, Polish workers. You'll see it.

The second thing, about the trade war -- I don't understand, because your ties and the clothes you make is made in Mexico and in China. So you're gonna be starting a trade war against your own ties and your own suits.

TRUMP: All right, you know what?

RUBIO: Why don't you make them in America?

TRUMP: Because they devalue their currency -- they devalue their currencies...

RUBIO: Well, then make them in America.

TRUMP: ... that makes it -- well, you don't know a thing about business. You lose on everything...
