I thought Donald Trump doesn't run his businesses anymore.
Part of the whole 'becoming President' thing.


First they complain he didn't divest himself of business interests, but now he isn't involved enough in day to day operations for them.

That said I don't support the use of these visas for jobs that could be done by current ctizens. It's being abused across the board in this country and those visas need to have a more strict set of requirements.

As a Trump supporter, I got nothing for this other than......FAKE NEWS!!!


Seriously! I highly doubt this was HIS choice, since that would be an yuge idiotic move on his part and surely he knows he would get blasted by the opposition. You know dang well that Trump has been smart enough to stay 2 steps ahead of the media at every turn.

These decisions are not done by Trump but by managers at Mar a Lago.

The blame still falls on him. He loves to run his mouth about that dump so in no way is he blameless.
Trumps plan to make America great again use cheap foreign labor because Americans cost too much and expect to get paid.

Then you would think that Trump would tell the managers to hire Americans. But he didn't apparently.

Trump doesn't care about the American working man. You wanted a businessman...you got one.

Trump resigned from every Trump business on January 19. He does not make any decision nor does he tell any manager what to do.

They're mostly Romanian because as most world travelers know, The Romanians are known for their hospitality...

If You want to get deeper into this, I linked a few articles about Herr Drumpf hiring Romanians during the Presidential Erections..

I am someone who worked over 17 years in the hospitality industry.

I have seen and personally hired locals who had stellar resumes and didnt come close to working out.

I had to hire a European chef because I was scared I was in the twilight zone trying to hire a decent local person. In NYC.

The best in that industry ARE NOT American.

Only male gay actors make the best waiters in NYC. Only tom boy females are flawless cocktail specialists. Only old Mexican guys can run a busy NYC kitchen like it was nothing without losing their minds.

There are exceptions. The thing is, no one cares. You have to prove you arent going to be like 90% of people walking in.

Its hard to find a "100% local" in the hospitality industry that will work out. Look around. Its true.

What was the Trump family's excuse when the unemployment rate was high and they were STILL hiring mostly from overseas?

Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club often hires foreign guest workers over US employees
The Republican front-runner claims in New York Times report that his club is hiring guest workers out of necessity.

www.independent.co.uk...

For all his tough talk on immigration on the campaign trail, Donald Trump's famous Florida club appears to prefer hiring foreign guest workers over United States residents.

According to a report from the New York Times, the opulent Mar-a-Lago Club has filed for 500 visas for foreign workers through the Department of Labor since 2010. Over the same period, the private club hired just 17 out of about 300 U.S. applicants, records obtained by The Times show.



"The visas are issued through a legal program that allows employers to temporarily hire foreign workers when there are no Americans available to do the work.
But hundreds of U.S. applicants either applied or were referred for the jobs, but only a handful were hired, the New York Times reported in February.
Since 2010, nearly 300 U.S. residents applied or were referred for jobs as waiters, waitresses, cooks and housekeepers there, but only 17 were hired, according to The Times.

The way Free Markets work in Capitalism is you increase the pay until you get higher quality people then, but as it is, Big Business is showing itself more and more everyday of actually hating free market capitalism.

From Purchasing Politicians, to trade with Communist Countries where workers have no rights to trade with third world countries

They absolutely detest Free Market Capitalism in THIS country

Trump's Mar-a-Lago has requested with the Department of Labor to hire 70 foreign workers right in the middle of the "Made In America" week.

They are hiring 15 housekeepers, 20 cooks and 35 waiters on H-2B visas which can be granted if not enough American workers willing to do the job.


This may also speak to the amount of work and poor wages for those jobs in general. When I was in college (late 1960) some of my classmates worked as maids at a local hotel to help pay expenses... but now I rarely see 2nd generation Americans in those positions. This kind of labor is necessary, but employers have often decided that the "tip system" exists to augment their wages and don't pay them full value.

This is different in Germany, where tipping is NOT expected because waiters and other service workers are paid a decent salary... and prices are not through the roof, either.

At a press conference January 11, Trump pledged to transfer his business holdings to a trust run by the sons. He refused to sell his ownership stake, a step that many ethics lawyers say is critical to avoid conflicts of interest.

Doesn't quite match up with what you claim. Also when did CNN start telling the truth? Thought they were fake news so then this article is pure BS huh?

Ownership is meaningless. The Trump businesses are a family business. It's owned by the Trump family, not only by him who is naturally a Trump.

You sound racist.

If the workers are here legally, they they are just as American as anyone else. That's what America is all about.

It's not about race, never has been as the left like to push it.


What? Go back and read what Trump reportedly said and then tell me who's racists. Americans not qualified to be a house keeper? Give me a break. More projection, because he knows he's not qualified to have HIS job. Barf.

Couldn't be further from the truth. The states that the right control get far more government subsidies than states led by the left. That is undeniable, provable fact! But you stay in Trump fantasy land and the left will continue to support you!

If that is the case than he shouldn't be spewing Buy American Hire American! None of the Trump family products aren't manufactured in America. He also doesn't hire American! You Trumpers are something else. I have some amazing real estate investments that Eric Estrada hooked me up with if any Trumpers are interested?!

Nope, the "He's not MY president" crowd has never run a business---never had to attempt to sift through the crap that US citizens today turn in as "resumes." They have no clue as to how to balance a business budget or plan for a workforce that will support the business. But what they are really good at is judging the behaviors of others despite the fact that they have no clue as to how businesses must run to stay afloat and provide jobs.

Perhaps the Trump organization wants people who actually want to work and can read, write and communicate effectively. Try telling a 100% local that they can only use their phones during breaks! They will begin screaming that is "illegal" or a "rights violation." It would be funny if it weren't so pathetic. The open borders crowd now wants---what?

Nobody manufactures in America because of strict environmental regulations and workers benefits. They don't have those in China.

It seems to me the Mar-a-Lago Club routinely makes this same request....since at least 2013.

And I am not seeing these same positions advertised anywhere for local/U.S. citizen applicants.

Also, the pay is $2+ over minimum wage. I am not sure how that translates in the world of servers and housekeeping. There's a no-tipping policy, too, according to the request records.

Trump always keeps me wondering if he''s controlled opposition.
