Jimmy Kimmel Makes a Hilarious Discovery at Trump's Online Store

Last night, Jimmy Kimmel revealed he’d gone on a shopping spree at the Trump Organization’s online store. He wanted to see how seriously the Trump family was taking the “America first” challenge Donald Trump has made to American companies, demanding more companies begin making merchandise in the USA again.


Kimmel pulled one piece of merchandise after the other from the box and read each label. Surprise! Not one single item was made in the U.S. More than that, he found two items were missing the federally required country of origin designation. That was enough for the late-night host to file a federal complaint against the company. If federal officials agree with Kimmel’s assertion, the Trump Organization could be fined $500,000 per offense.
