A federal agency recalled around 20,000 scarves made under the Ivanka Trump brand on Wednesday for failing to meet flammability standards, the Houston Chronicle reported.
The Consumer Product Safety Commission’s decision affects Trump’s Brushstroke Oblong and Beach Wave scarves, both of which are made entirely of rayon.

The scarves, which bear her name, “do not meet the federal flammability standards for clothing textiles, posing a burn risk,” the agency said.

Is this what he was talking about when bringing all those American jobs back?

You sure they're his?

They're branded in the name of his ex-wife.
Daughter's name, but your point still stands.

Correct me if I am wrong but I think the way this works is the law makes one party responsible for making sure that all imported products are up to US code, and rarely is that the buyer. If Trumps people did nothing wrong then they should not be accused of doing something wrong, this is basic human decency and fidelity to the truth.

grasping at straws, the jealousy of a true American entrepreneur is palpable.

When I think of a "true American entrepreneur" I dont think of someone who was handed millions and millions from their father.

He's not President yet.
He's really leading by example and his precedence is really clear...

I think it's funny we have flammability standards for ....cloth.
amazingly enough, despite our federal flammability standards for cloth... cloth still catches fire and burns.

in any event, if you're in the business of clothing, you get your textiles from Asia(especially china).... they rule the world in that market.... the US doesn't even really exist in that market.
the US textiles industry primarily consists of specialized industrial textiles , not clothing textiles.... and we also ship a lot of raw materials to trade partners who are in the clothing textiles market.

one of free to get into the clothing textile market if they want, but they will have to be prepared for a short lived business...US firms get their asses handed to them in the clothing textile market ( which is why we prefer to export our industrial textiles to other countries)

Someone who starts from the bottom and works their way up.

You're right, he is; but not how you think. He's a real businessman, so he makes the best decisions for his company within the laws. Change the laws.

that's a bit odd, but ok.
those folks may or may not be entrepreneurs..depending

a persons can work their way up from the bottom of a business and take it over... he's not an entrepreneur, though ( it's not a new business)

and entrepreneur is simply one who designs, starts and runs a new business.... how the new business is financed is completely irrelevant.... it could be financed on inheritance, savings , or loans, or venture capitalist investments.... it matters not.

like it or not, Trump is actually an entrepreneur... a very successful one at that.

The laws are forcing him to outsource production of his clothes?

Enough to demonstrate a lack of business acumen.

When did you make your last $billion?
