At the start of the White House’s “Made in America” week, Sean Spicer faced some questions about Trump-brand products made overseas.
The goal of this week, as the White House explained, is “honoring the incredible workers and companies who make ‘Made in America’ the world standard for quality and craftsmanship.”

Spicer said he wouldn’t comment specifically, adding, “It’s not appropriate for me to stand up here and comment about a business.” He spoke more generally about what the President is trying to achieve with his agenda.
Another reporter asked if the President is “the right vessel for this message” given Trump-brand products made overseas.
Spicer said that Trump has been “a successful businessman on a number of fronts” and how he’s actually in a unique position to be able to understand the problem.
