Report: Trump’s Clubs Have Hired Only One Single American

Trump has been shouting that we must "hire American" and "buy American" since 2015 and it's a central message of federal agencies in 2018, but records show Trump's clubs in Florida and New York hired only one single American over the past two years.

Vox reviewed recruiting files submitted to the US Department of Labor for two Trump properties in Florida (including Mar-a-Lago) and one in New York from the start of 2016 through the end of 2017. In that period, hiring managers said they were able to find and hire only one qualified American worker — a cook — for 144 open positions for servers, cooks, housekeepers, and bartenders. [...]

“It doesn’t make sense,” said Tobias Pfutze, an economics professor at Florida International University in Miami. “I haven't heard anything about there being a labor shortage. The service labor market here is very flexible.”

Trump and his anti-immigrant cabinet sectaries and cronies descend on his clubs every weekend where they're waited on and served by a staff that is almost entirely foreign and poor.

Everything old is new again, including The Great Gatsby.

    When will Rump be held accountable? If President Obama had done just one of the literally hundreds of incompetent or outright evil things Rump has done, there would have been impeachment hearings. I’m sick of the lies, the propaganda, seeing the richest rape America at the poorest taxpayers’ expense, seeing their tax cuts lay the groundwork for an economic time bomb while the media normalizes this entire sad episode in our history…it’s very depressing.

      Only with a Blue Tsunami in the Fall will he be held accountable.
