DNC on Continued Detainment by China of Men Investigating Ivanka Trump Factory

In response to the AP’s report that China rejected calls from around the world and the U.S. Department of State to release three men who were detained after investigating workers’ rights at a factory that makes Ivanka Trump’s shoes, DNC Deputy Communications Director Adrienne Watson released the following statement:


“China has confirmed it will not release the human rights workers detained after investigating Ivanka Trump’s shoe factory, but Ivanka’s company has stayed silent about the detainment and mistreatment of workers at the factories they use. At the least, Ivanka’s company should switch suppliers, and the Trumps should stop hypocritically telling corporations to ‘buy American and hire American’ while they continue to knowingly take advantage of workers abuses abroad.”
