Maybe next presidential election, it would behoove pollsters to check in with flagmakers of Yiwu, China's main manufacturing center for flags exported to America. One manufacturer told a Chinese video site he knew Trump would win because they were exporting so many more Trump flags.
In an interview with Digger, a Chinese video site, Yao Dan Dan, who runs a small factory making flags for export to U.S. retailers, said there were far more Trump flags ordered compared with those for Hillary Clinton. After a couple of early orders for Clinton flags, some of Yao's American customers stopped commissioning those altogether, as fewer people were buying them, he said.
It's not clear if that includes the Confederate flag variants they offer.
