Companies work painstakingly to earn consumer trust. But when you purchase brand-name goods through online third-party marketplaces like Alibaba, Amazon and eBay , there’s a good chance you’ll end up with a counterfeit. On Wednesday President Trump will sign a presidential memorandum to help protect American consumers, manufacturers and factory workers from counterfeiting.
The Government Accountability Office notes in a January 2018 report that express carriers and international mail have replaced traditional cargo xxxxxxxxx and relaunch as quickly as they are removed.
By establishing a strategy and blueprint for change, today’s presidential memorandum takes an important step toward holding online third-party marketplaces and other intermediaries accountable. The directive instructs the Department of Homeland Security to coordinate with federal law-enforcement agencies working to combat counterfeiting of good. Online third-party marketplaces should note these efforts and move swiftly to clean up their own houses.
Mr. Navarro is assistant to the president for trade and manufacturing policy.

Socialism is in the air—a green, wired, mindful, glossy-lipped movement that’s going to usher in free college, free health care and heavily followed Instagram accounts for all. It’s presented as new and futuristic, but there’s no need to reinvent the xxxxxxxsettling onto government entitlements is a calamity.
America has already entered our next presidential campaign, and ambitious slogans are ringing: Medicare for All! Universal Basic Income! Green New Deal! Free College! But there is an obvious battle cry waiting to be trotted out by socialists: VA Benefits for All!
Though it might not have quite the intended effect.
