trump should put his money where his mouth is.
Donald Trump called for a renewed push to "buy American, hire American" Tuesday, — ignoring the fact that his family's companies fail to carry out that pledge.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D - West Virginia) "said the president could 'lead by example,' while indicating that the tax code and trade deals need to be improved so the U.S. can compete." (The Hill).
We believe President Trump should put his money where his mouth is.

Hello, my name is (YOUR NAME) and I am calling today because I find the President's calls for the U.S. government to "Buy American and Hire American" when as a billionaire businessman, he has failed to live up to the same pledge, to be hypocritical.
If we are to take the President seriously on this matter, his family should promise to begin transitioning all manufacturing of clothing items to U.S. soil. If the President is unwilling to follow his own policy, then I ask my representative to stand up to any legislation pushing the policy.
If President Trump insists on Executive Action, there are things my representatives can do to respond. Senator Joe Manchin of West Virginia made a public request that the Trump Organization manufacture its items in his state. I believe there is room for our other representatives to do the same. I am not opposed to increasing American jobs, but I am opposed to double standards in our government.
