Donald Trump Continues to Comment on Chinese Window Purchase
October 5, 2010

In a comment to USGNN.com™ yesterday Donald Trump told us that he would much rather buy windows from U.S. companies, as their products are better, but China’s “artificially low currency make it hard for U.S. companies to compete.” He echoed that same sentiment this morning during an interview with MSNBC.

“The valuation of their [China’s] current is ridiculous. You can’t compete with it. And I was telling people the other day, I was ordering windows for a building, a lot of them,” Trump said. “So many bids come in from China, everyone wants to go China—by the way, their product isn’t nearly as good as Pella and lots of other good companies in our country …”

Trump’s comments of late about having to buy windows from China have stirred up a quite an outcry from North American companies. To tell us what you think of Trump’s comments please e-mail erogers@glass.com.
