Internet Blows Up After Video Emerges Of David Letterman Challenging Trump Over His China-Made Ties
An old video of David Letterman challenging Donald Trump over his ties being made in China has set the internet abuzz after the Trump on Friday ordered U.S. companies to sever business links with the country.
The footage shows the then-late night TV host responding to Trump bashing the Obama administration’s China policy by informing Trump that his ties were actually made there.
“Rarely do you see Donald Trump caught without something to say. Silence,” said MSNBC’s Ari Melber, who shared the clip on “The Beat.”
“To paraphrase Springsteen, ‘to face the ties that bind, you can’t break the ties that bind’ and Donald Trump is tied up with an order he can’t enforce against other companies, an order he never bothered to apply to his own company,” he added.
The video has gone viral as people accused Trump of hypocrisy.
