    Trump says American-made products used for government projects currently can contain 50 percent foreign components and still be considered American. He signed an executive order Monday boosting the percentage of American components to 75 percent.

    The president signed the order during an annual White House “Made in America” showcase. Manufacturers from all 50 states were represented.

    Trump says the administration is “heeding the wisdom” of the nation’s founders by “restoring our economic independence and reawakening our industrial might.”

    Trump also discussed steps the administration is taking to boost the U.S. manufacturing industry. The trade deficit last year widened to a decade-long high of $621 billion.

    1. No more made in Vietnam MAGA hats? No more Ivanka-dress-like-a-kurva styles made by eight year olds in far eastern sweatshops?

      Oh, well, at least we’ll still have Slovenian slut-wear for the next porn star turned political leech.
