Canada: 'Dump Trump' tie series unveiled in Toronto

Canada, Toronto
August 10, 2016 at 17:23 GMT +00:00 · Published

Owner and designer of Vassi Menswear, Andrea Vassi, launched his new tie series mocking Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump, in Toronto, Wednesday.

Vassi said he first got the idea for the 'Dump Trump' ties last November, when Trump made fun of disabled New York Times reporter Serge Kovalski.

"I saw when Donald Trump made a mockery of Serge Kovalski, the New York Times reporter, was the tipping point for me. To me our politicians they should have certain moral values," Vassi said and added that "Making mockery out of a disabled person is simply unacceptable. That's what inspired me to create these ties."

All proceeds from Vassi’s Dump Trump ties are planned to be donated to charities, including one chosen by the family of Humayun Khan, the Muslim-American soldier killed by a suicide bomber in Iraq.
