Donald Trump hiring foreign workers to staff his golf resort despite ‘America First’ pledge on jobs


Donald Trump may have pledged to put ‘America first’ – but that doesn’t seem to apply to his golf resort.

The President has promised to help the millions of struggling Americans who voted for him by being “the greatest jobs president that God ever created.”

But this week one of his businesses, the Trump National Golf Course, applied for visas to bring in foreign workers to be waiters and waitresses.

The application means Trump’s business is effectively arguing that there are no Americans to fill the role – even though it is just 35 miles from New York city.

Trump’s jobs at his golf resort will pay around £11 an hour

It’s not the first time one of Trump’s businesses has taken on foreign workers.

According to BuzzFeed, the billionaire businessman has hired at least 294 foreign workers since he launched his presidential campaign.

Many of them work at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida where the President has frequently spent his weekends since taking office.

The visa jobs are seasonal and pay around £11 an hour.
