DNC on Men Reported Missing & Detained who were Investigating Ivanka Trump Factory in China
May 30, 2017
In response to the AP’s report that in China, two men have gone missing and another has been detained after investigating workers’ rights at a factory that makes Ivanka Trump’s shoes, DNC deputy communications director Adrienne Watson released the following statement:
“We deeply hope that these detained or missing human rights workers are safe and can be reunited with their families as soon as possible. For years, Ivanka Trump has ignored public reports of awful labor conditions at a factory that makes her shoes. Now, she must decide whether she can ignore the Chinese government’s apparent attempt to silence an investigation into those worker abuses.
“Ivanka’s brand should immediately cease its work with this supplier, and the Trump administration should reverse its current course and confront China on its human rights abuses.”
