Donald Trump’s Inauguration Hats were Made in China

Published

on

WASHINGTON (Diya TV) — During his inaugural address, President Donald Trump pledged that his administration would embrace a “buy American” message, but Friday morning, it was revealed the hats worn at Trump’s ceremony were made in China.

“We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and hire American,” the 45th President of the United States said during the rainy Washington D.C. gathering.

Shortly after 10 a.m., Illinois Congresswoman Cheri Bustos shared a tweet with a little detail she noticed:

Trump spoke vehemently on the campaign trail of the actions he was considering taking against the nation, most recently when he suggested he might consider a one-China principle during an interview with the Wall Street Journal. 

The one-China principle holds that Taiwan is part of China and the Communist government in Beijing is China’s sole legitimate government.

Hua Chunying, a spokeswoman for China’s Foreign Ministry, told reporters that anyone attempting to use Taiwan’s status in a negotiation would be “smashing their feet by lifting a rock.”

“Not everything in the world can be bargained or traded off,” Hua told reporters at a daily briefing.

“Whoever attempts to harm the one-China principle out of any motive or uses the principle as a bargaining chip will definitely be facing broad and strong opposition from the Chinese government and people, as well as the international community,” Hua said.

The reporting on Trump’s inauguration in China was ordered to be scaled back by the country’s ruling Communist party, as the nation weighs its response to the new administration that could potentially upend U.S.-China relations. “It is forbidden for websites to carry out live streaming or picture reports of the inauguration,” read a copy of censorship instructions obtained by the Financial Times.

“Wasn’t allowed to discuss Trump today on my radio show, he’s now an official sensitive topic,” Elyse Ribbons, an American who hosts a radio show on a Chinese state-run station, reportedly wrote on her Twitter account Thursday. “Chinese leadership still trying to figure him out (sigh).”
