I’m convinced Trump is sitting on a big chunk of real estate in Manhattan’s Garment District just waiting for when he can repeal child labor laws.

Child labor is more in Betsy DeVos’ wheelhouse. Literally - the “Acton Institute for the Study of Religion and Liberty,” on whose board she served for a number of years (and which she funded) was calling for the repeal of child labor laws. (“Bring Back Child Labor: Work is a Gift Our Kids Can Handle")
Though I suspect Trump and his kids are already making use of child labor for their products - overseas.

I want to live somewhere where the people who did this are not smiling for the camera and congratulating themselves; rather they are hiding their faces out of shame and fear for their lives.
