Trump just ordered US Businesspeople to stop doing business with China: does that include Trump Ties and Ivanka Shoes?

@realDonaldTrump

Our Country has lost, stupidly, Trillions of Dollars with China over many years. They have stolen our Intellectual Property at a rate of Hundreds of Billions of Dollars a year, & they want to continue. I won’t let that happen! We don’t need China and, frankly, would be far....

....better off without them. The vast amounts of money made and stolen by China from the United States, year after year, for decades, will and must STOP. Our great American companies are HEREBY ORDERED to immediately start looking for an alternative to China...

    Here comes another big Trump cave. He will blame canceling his tariffs on Obama, Hillary, Omar, CNN, illegals, Jews who vote for Democrats and members of the G7 who laughed at him.

    If they are American companies, yes.

    Notice that he said American companies are ordered to "start looking for an alternative to China." He didn't say that they must immediately stop dealing with China.

    And BTW, not all Trump branded merchandise is produced by Trump-owned companies. And most Trump-branded merchandise is no longer being produced, for one reason or another. No new Trump ties, I'm pretty sure.

    But one more thing - I don't know how the President of the US has the power to give orders to American businesses....

    Of course not, just like the China tariffs aren't on his and Ivanka's Chinese-made products.

    Yeah, a lot of that money we lost to china is the interest payments on the money we borrowed from them. He should work on getting out of debt.

    Needless to say, this "order" by Trump has no basis in law. Its only basis is in an authoritarian mindset. One might seek reassurance in the fact the "order" is fanciful. But the conclusion that our president is merely a fantasist with authoritarian inclinations isn't reassuring.
