"Buy American!" President Donald Trump and his family love to say. While it certainly has a nice ring to it, is there any truth behind their cheer? Late-night television host Jimmy Kimmel of Jimmy Kimmel Live! decided to put his money where the Trump family's mouths are by purchasing merchandise from the Trump Store. Kimmel came to discover that something was greatly amiss.

None of the items were "Made in America," he discovered, and then Kimmel announced he was going to do something about it.


Kimmel bought some memorabilia from the Trump Store, which Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump, sons of the President, currently run.

“I’m sure Eric and Don Jr. take this American thing very seriously. These guys are red, white and blue to the core. They’re like a couple of flags wearing hair gel, these two.”

Kimmel continued by pulling a black and gold golf club cover, which Kimmel pointed out "was made in China but decorated in the USA, and that's saying something." Kimmel pulled more Trump-branded goodies out of the box.

"I got a Trump signature duffel bag which is made in China, I got a Trump signature shoe bag which is made in China, I got a blanket...guess where this was made? Yeah, China," Kimmel said as he continued to pull more items out of the box.

Showing a baby bib, "just like the one the President wears when he eats cheeseburgers in bed," Kimmel read that it was made in Peru. The Trump golf medallion was made in China, too.

"Trump's whole platform is about supporting American companies...Trump's company doesn't even support American companies," Kimmel said. "I’ll just file an official complaint and let them sort it out."
The crowd went wild. So did Twitter.

Attorney General William Barr criticized President Donald Trump's tweets about Justice Department prosecutors' sentencing recommendation for Trump ally Roger Stone.

Barr—who overrode the recommendation after Trump railed against it on Twitter—said Trump's tweets made it impossible to do his job, though some people believe his words weren't to rein in Trump, but to mitigate public outrage.

Fox Host Lou Dobbs is not one of those people.

Americans across the country were furious when President Donald Trump fired Lieutenant Colonel Alexander Vindman after Trump was acquitted in his impeachment trial by the Republican Senate.

Vindman complied with a congressional subpoena to testify before the House committee overseeing Trump's impeachment inquiry last year.

The career military official and Purple Heart recipient was escorted out by security along with his twin brother, an NSC official who played no part in the impeachment proceedings.

People cried foul earlier this week when the Justice Department overrode four career prosecutors to recommend a reduced sentence for former Trump campaign advisor Roger Stone.

The Department's decision came only a day after Trump railed against the prosecutors' recommendation on Twitter, leading many to believe the Department reduced the sentence recommendation because the President interceded on his ally's behalf.

All four prosecutors on the case resigned in response to the change.
