DNC Chair Slams Trump's 'Buy American' Order: 'Start With Your Own Damn Businesses'
Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez scolded President Trump about his new "Buy American-Hire American" executive order.
Kicking off a national tour with Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) in Portland, Maine, Perez said Trump was being hypocritical when he pressed for higher wages and more domestic production.
"I kid you not," Perez said. "It's an executive order... directing that people 'Buy American' and 'Hire American'."
"Well, maybe you could start with your own damn businesses," Perez stormed.
He added that Ivanka Trump's company recently received 50 "big-a**" pallets from Singapore via Pacific ports.
Perez, 55, said the president's wall will also require a garage door because of the goods his company imports from Mexico.
Trump spoke Tuesday afternoon at a Snap-On factory in Kenosha, Wis., where he introduced his executive order.
In addition to highlighting the need for more domestic manufacturing, the order directs the government to revamp the H-1B visa program for foreign workers.
Last month in New Jersey, Perez slammed Trump and the RNC, alleging they "don't give a s**t about people."
