Clinton Ad Slams Trump Over Outsourcing Jobs Overseas

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign released a new TV ad Wednesday attacking Republican rival Donald Trump over his outsourcing the manufacture of his clothing line to factories in China, Mexico and India.

"Donald Trump's brand of shirts come from China, his suits from Mexico, his coats from India," Robert Kidder, the owner of New England Shirt Co. in Fall River, Mass., says in the ad. "Trump's products have been made in 12 other countries because he says there's no place in America that he can make them."

Kidder's company has been making shirts since 1933, according to the company's website, all of which are labeled "Made in America."

"You know, Donald Trump says he'll make America great again, while he's taking the shirts right off our backs," Kidder concludes.

Buzzfeed recently visited one of Trump's factories in Honduras, and the team ordered a Donald Trump suit. It was made in Indonesia.

This isn't the first time Trump has been hit for making his clothes abroad. His primary opponents attacked him over it in debates and ads.

While appearing on ABC's "This Week" in May, Trump defended the offshore production of his clothing line, the Donald J. Trump Collection, saying: "They don't make a lot of these products" in America.

One of Trump's primary opponents, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, raised the outsourcing issue during a Republican debate in February, according to Factcheck.org

"The second thing, about the trade war — I don't understand, because your ties and the clothes you make is made in Mexico and in China," Rubio said. "So you're gonna be starting a trade war against your own ties and your own suits."
