Many people take pride in things made in their native land. Americans (which is how residents of the USA refer to themselves, w/o intending any offense to Canadians, Mexicans Central or S. Americans) in particular are proud of our manufacturing heritage. At one time, we made the best of everything (or so we thought).
That is, except for cars (Germany), cameras (once Germany, then Japan), fine china (England), consumer electronics (Japan), fine leather goods (Italy), fine wines (France), ...
Anyway, having lost most manufacturing to Japan, Korea, Mexico, and China, Americans nowadays particularity appreciate stuff "Made in USA."
