The official White House Twitter account posted a video Monday of President Donald Trump speaking at the Made in America event being held at the White House. In the tweet, they included the hashtag #MadeinAmerica.

"American manufacturers gathered at the White House today to showcase American-made goods from all 50 states. #MadeinAmerica," the tweet reads.


The short video clip showed the President before a display of products from each of the 50 states all "Made in America."

However the internet being what it is, people seized upon the hashtag to make a point to the Trump Organization —the private businesses owned by the family— and the Trump presidential administration.

People shared photos of Trump brand merchandise labels, showing the goods were not #MadeinAmerica. Instead of kudos, people trolled the First Family accusing them of hypocrisy.
