Can I blame Trump for this?

On April 2nd I ordered a pretty dress off Amazon for my DD to wear for Easter.  It has never arrived.

I didn't notice it wasn't prime until after I ordered it and noticed the estimated arrival date: April 7th to 17th.  Turns out I ordered the dress from a company in Bangladesh.  It's being shipped through China Post.

It still has not arrived! I had to buy my DD another dress for Easter.

I notified the company and they returned my S&H fees and will allow me to return the dress once I receive it.  They told me it was being held up at Kennedy airport.  I'm assuming it's held up in customs.

Somehow I just know this is Trump's fault.

I might keep the dress.  It's not very expensive. She can wear it to church and on her birthday.

Seriously. Do you have any idea how customs works? Do you know how many hours I've spent in my life talking with custom agents trying track down, find and get something released because our production department needed parts for upcoming orders. Customs is a nightmare. Oh... and my cable Went out yesterday. Pretty sure is was a government thing preventing me from watching the news.

You never know.  I could see the gov't trying to hide the news.  They are already making us doubt it.

Or you could read when you buy.

I usually just order things from Payless, JC penny, and Amazon Prime.  I did buy something around Christmas time from Israel.  I ended up giving it to my DD for Valentine's Day.

I had also bought her a pair of high heel shoes at the same time I bought the dress.  It has an arrival date sometime the end of May.  

I will be more careful in the future before I place an order on Amazon!

I ordered a bra and it took 4 weeks from China. Has nothing to do with Trump.

Thanks!

I'm thinking customs may have slowed down due to officers being redirected to harass visitors, er I mean interviewing travels to our great nation.

They're inspecting each and every Presidential butt-plug that's imported from Russia to make sure Trump doesn't get an actual real bomb with his butt-rocket.
