Trade War Update: Chinese-Made Flags, Hats For Trump Reportedly Held Up At Customs

By Sahid Fawaz

President Donald Trump reportedly received a taste of his own tariff medicine this week.

Business Insider reports:

“Trump-themed flags and hats made in China are reportedly being held up at US customs amid an intensifying trade war.

Textile suppliers who export their goods to the US told China’s state-run tabloid Global Times their products have been delayed at US customs, which is affecting their sales.

‘Usually the goods only take 10 days to reach US customers. Now it is taking 15 days or longer,’ Wu Yuepei, a manager at Qiwang Textile Product, told Global Times.

Yao Dandan, a manager at flag maker Shaoxing Keqiao Jiahao Arts & Crafts Co., also reported delays at US customs, suspected to be related to current trade disputes between the US and China.

Yao said his company has sold about 50,000 “Trump flags” so far this year, and continues to receive orders.

It’s unclear what exactly these flags are, but Global Times said another store sold ‘Trump 2020’ and ‘Keep America Great!’ flags.

Several manufacturers across China’s eastern Zhejiang Province have reported making flags for Trump’s 2020 bid.”
