Busted: NOTHING In Trump’s New Hotel Is Made In The USA (PHOTOS)

[mashshare]

Donald Trump just revealed his staggering hypocrisy to the world when he opened the new Trump Hotel in Washington D.C – and it was discovered to be filled with items made everywhere but the United States. While Trump complains endlessly about how China is “taking our jobs,” he won’t even stock his hotels with American products.

Washington Post reporter Dana Milbank rented an exhorbiantly expensive room to see if Trump practices what he preaches – and this is what he found:

“Italian bed linens, French table linens, Chinese duvet, Korean TV and, yes, Mexican tequila ($14 for a shot of Patrón Silver) in the minibar, er, “private bar,…In my room, I found a Trump logo bathmat and towels from India, bone china from Japan, Italian cutlery and tiles, two telephones from Malaysia, a Swiss refrigerator, German coffee cups, Trump soaps and lotions from Canada and, from China, all four lamps, coffee machine, bathroom scale, valet stand and shower cap. The hotel’s managing director is from France. Most hotel workers I met during my stay had Caribbean or African accents.

He campaigns on an “America First” theme — yet about the only American-made thing I could find in my hotel room was the small package of milk-chocolate Trump gold bullion ($25).

He portrays himself as a populist friend of the little guy, yet he makes money renting out a presidential suite for $18,000 a night (a sign informed me that the maximum nightly rate for my room was $5,600).

He derides the “establishment” but makes his living catering to it. The hotel lobby features a Brioni boutique and 3-foot-tall bottles of Veuve Clicquot sharing a bar top with Dom Perignon; the room comes with a copy of Wine Spectator (“The Cheese Issue”); the hotel charges $15 to launder a shirt, $12 for Peanut M&Ms and $26 for a hamburger (sorry, no taco bowls).”

It’s a devastating takedown that exposes Donald Trump as a fraud and a charlatan, a hypocrite who is obviously taking his supporters for a ride, promising them things he can’t deliver and saying things he doesn’t really believe. At the end of the day, Trump is what we always knew he was – a narcissistic who draws his self-worth from delusions of grandeur and for his insatiable greed.
