Is it wrong for the U.S. Olympic team to wear uniforms made in China?


As reported by ABC Nightly News with Diane Sawyer, the U.S. Olympic team are all wearing uniforms, including even their shoes, that have been made in China. It was also stated that these same outfits could have been made in the U.S. cheaper than China. The Olympics team receives their funding through private donors and Ralph Lauren was the designer of the uniforms. Why would these people pay China for something that could be manufactured here cheaper?

    When interviewed U.S. manufacturers said they could produce these garments cheaper than China, so I still wonder why the donors bought favor with the Chinese?
