    Activists Missing Amid Probe of Ivanka Trump-Linked Shoe Factories

    by Reuters

    SHANGHAI — Two activists are missing and another has been arrested in China after conducting an investigation into a local company making Ivanka Trump-branded shoes, a New York-based advocacy group said Wednesday.

    Hua Haifeng was detained in Jiangxi province on suspicion of illegally using eavesdropping equipment, according to Li Qiang, executive director of China Labor Watch.

    Li said the three men had been investigating conditions at factories that produce shoes for President Donald Trump's daughter, as well as other Western brands...

    CNN covering the detention, disappearance of activists, but unable to get good information. Scary. Ivanka still owner in the firm.

    NPR reports:

    On Tuesday, police in the province called Hua's wife, Deng Guimian.

    "They said, 'You only need to know that your husband has been arrested on criminal charges,' " Deng told NPR by phone from her home in Hubei province. " 'You don't need to know anything other than that.' "

    Hua works for China Labor Watch, a New York-based group that investigates violations of workers' rights. China Labor Watch says two of Hua's colleagues are also missing and presumed detained.
    When the factory became the subject of critical reports earlier this year, the state-run Global Times tabloid leaped to its defense, accusing Western media of "maligning the reputation of the Trump family by publishing distorted reports."

    They are Chinese activists investigating a manufacturing company that makes many shoe brands, including Ivanka's correct? Ivanka doesn't own this facility, correct?

    Will the Trumps have to pay that yuge penalty for having their products made in foreign countries, I wonder?

    Here's what it says at the link:

    The Huajian factory makes as many as 20,000 pairs of shoes a year for the Ivanka Trump brand. It makes millions more for others, including Coach and Nine West.

    ...

    Li says he investigated the Huajian shoe factory precisely because it was making shoes for the Ivanka Trump brand and he thought he could leverage that to help the workers.

    My gut says this is a China thing and not an Ivanka thing, but I think Ivanka needs to distance herself from this very quickly.

    How about opening a factory in Detroit (Detroit always comes back!) or Buffalo? Buy American, right?

    Please, NO!!! Not Detroit. The Motor City has enough issues without interjecting Trump enterprises.

    I think it is a China thing too, but imagine if Hillary were associated with it in any way, however slight, although I am sure that if they can prove that Hillary ever owned a pair of shoes from that factory, she will be blamed.

    Sorry! I just know the city is trying to rebuild itself and some fancy handmade shoes might be a cool thing to add. Better to find some hipster designers though.

    Cleveland it is!
