Donald Trump is Hiring More Foreign Workers. Today.

The centerpiece of Donald Trump's "America First" campaign is returning jobs to Real (Read: White) Americans that were supposedly stolen by foreign laborers.

Given Trump's rhetoric, what would otherwise be a normal business practice becomes a bit of a problem.

Trump has filed applications to bring in 78 foreign workers to work at his Mar-a-Lago resort and golf club this month!

He filed applications this month claiming he couldn’t find enough Americans to do that work, and is seeking temporary visas to bring in 65 workers at Mar-a-Lago along with another seven waiters and six cooks at the golf club.

The Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment.

The idea that Americans aren't willing to do the work is plausible. That's a reason that is often cited by businesses that hire foreign labor. They say Americans aren't willing to do the job or there aren't enough educated Americans to do it.

If he were anyone else this would be normal, but he's Donald "America First" Trump.

It could become increasingly difficult for Trump to fill positions at his properties given that he is a documented fraudster and racist who regularly stiffs his employees. Even conservatives who would otherwise have no qualms about Trump's politics probably prefer to be paid.

As you may recall, the Mar-a-Lago is where Trump allegedly has a secret phone system that allows him to listen to any landline phone in the entire complex.

    Like Michael Bloomberg said in referring to the orange grifter, “I’m from New York. And I know a con when I see one” Excellent line. And demonstrably true.

      Unfortunately, far too many stupid people see otherwise.

    Donald Trump could easily have found 78 Americans willing and able to fill those positions, but he’s not willing to pay them what the labor market demands. Instead, he’s going to hire people he can pay lower wages.

    Murca First! Make Murca Great Again! Just don’t expect to be paid what you’re worth.

      And yet, Rust Belt workers in the Midwest are swallowing up the oversized Cheeto’s bullshit.

  • Somewhat rhetorical question to follow:
    Are his followers blind and deaf, or just stupid?
    How many times can this man say or do something stupid, contradictory, traitorous, or flatly against their interest before his supporters realize they’ve been connned. Sheesh.

    • I think he can pretty do and say anything he wants. I mean if yesterday’s seditious statements have no impact, what would? For some it has to be their Hillary Derangement and for others just rank fear overriding all logical thought processes.

      Well after they’re living in the streets in filth and their bodies decomposing from nuclear fallout will they realize that the piece of shit they elected president, Donald Drumph, conned them.

      Naaah, just kidding. They still blame Obama and Clinton after all that.
