Washington D. C. [USA], July 06 (ANI): A Chinese Company is producing flags for US President Donald Trump's re-election run in 2020, despite the looming threats of a Trade War.
CNN reported that a factory in the Chinese province of Zhejiang began manufacturing flags since after China became part of the World Trade Organisation, according to a National Public Radio interview with the owner of the factory on its 'The Indicator' podcast.
The factory also made flags for the campaigns of both Trump and Hillary Clinton in 2016.
"We also make flags for Trump for 2020. It seems like he has another campaign going on in 2020. Isn't that right?" said Li Jiang, the owner.
"It is completely normal. And that is trade. We buy stuff from America, and America is buying stuff from China. For example, my car is from America," he added.
Two of the biggest economies in the world, China and the US, are slated to sanction trade tariffs on 34-billion-dollar worth of exports on Friday.
However, Li remained unfazed by the prospects of the trade war, saying, "We are not so worried because first of all, we have a big price advantage over our competitors. And our clients are very smart. They would always go to the cheapest place. If China is cheap, they go to China. If America is cheap, they go to America." (ANI)
