White House announces new theme weeks amid health care bill uncertainty By Andrew Restuccia 07/16/2017

This week will include at least two events tied to the “Made in America” theme, including a “product showcase,” in which American-made products from all 50 states will be brought to the White House. On Wednesday, the president will issue a proclamation on the importance of making products in America, White House spokeswoman Helen Aguirre Ferre said Sunday.

Ferre declined to say whether the president would use the week to push his daughter Ivanka Trump to manufacture products from her fashion line in the United States instead of overseas. “We’ll get back to you on that,” she said. Many of the president’s own branded products are made overseas as well.

A Friday story in The Washington Post showed that the fashion line manufactures its products in foreign factories.

Ferre offered few details on the other two themed weeks on the schedule, though she suggested the “American Heroes” week will include military veterans.
