Jake Tapper Nails The Hypocrisy In Trump's 'Buy American' Executive Order

"So wait, does that mean that he wants me to stop buying Trump products?”

President Donald Trump on Tuesday signed his “Buy American and Hire American” executive order, despite the fact that his family’s own companies often do neither

“The president just signed an executive order to buy American,” CNN’s Jake Tapper said on “The Lead” on Tuesday in a clip posted online by Media Matters. “So wait, does that mean that he wants me to stop buying Trump products?”

Tapper called it an “important issue” but said “many Trump products are not made in the U.S.” and showed a map highlighting all the locations where Trump products are made. 

The president’s executive order includes a review of the H-1B visa program for highly skilled foreign workers. It does not include a review of the H-2B program, which Trump companies have used to hire more than 1,100 foreign workers since 2000, according to Reuters.
