On Thursday, the United States President Donald Trump has attended the opening of a new production site of Louis Vuitton in Texas, draws the French luxury powerhouse into his job-creation level as he gears up for the 2020 Presidential Elections.
Bernard Arnault is the head of the LVMH combination that owns the leather goods brand. He also attended the event at the “Rochambeau Ranch” near Dallas, named for the person who led French militants alongside thirteen colonies in the American Revolution.
On Wednesday, President Trump’s daughter Ivanka Trump tweets, “Thanks to the Trump Admin’s economic policies LVMH will open Louis Vuitton Rochambeau in Texas. Along with this investment, LVMH CEP Bernard Arnault Pledged for 1000 NEW opportunities for local artisans & leader craftsmen”.
Mr. Arnault was one of the first high-profile business leaders based in France to meet President Trump on January 2017, within weeks after his election, when he recommended he would consider expanding his business in America.
The United States’ Market is the second-largest for overall LVMH, as it already has two America-based production sites in California for Louis Vuitton, whose handbags generally cost thousands of dollars.
It continued that half of the LVMH workers it hires have no earlier experiences in leather crafting and received in-depth in-house training ahead being allowed to sew or cut.
President Trump is expected to capture on the new site later at what local sources are considering as a major campaign rally in Dallas, seeking to rally supporters as he resists an impeachment probe.
