During his inaugural address, President Donald Trump pledged that his administration will be guided by the rule buy American, but the Trump’s own hats worn at the inauguration were made in China.
During his address, Trump said, “We will follow two simple rules: Buy American and Hire American.”
Trump couldn’t even follow the first rule at his own inaugural.

All president’s break promises, but it is borderline pathological for Trump to look America in the eye and promise to buy American while the goods being worn by his own supporters are made in China.
Trump may have also set the record for fastest promise ever broken as president. He didn’t last 15 minutes from the time he took the oath office to his first broken promise.
If Trump can’t buy American as president-elect, there is no way he intends to buy American as president.
