Sounds about right.

Donald J. Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club in Palm Beach, Fla., describes itself as “one of the most highly regarded private clubs in the world,” and it is not just the very-well-to-do who want to get in.

Since 2010, nearly 300 United States residents have applied or been referred for jobs as waiters, waitresses, cooks and housekeepers there. But according to federal records, only 17 have been hired.

In all but a handful of cases, Mar-a-Lago sought to fill the jobs with hundreds of foreign guest workers from Romania and other countries.

In his quest for the Republican presidential nomination, Mr. Trump has stoked his crowds by promising to bring back jobs that have been snatched by illegal immigrants or outsourced by corporations, and voters worried about immigration have been his strongest backers.

But he has also pursued more than 500 visas for foreign workers at Mar-a-Lago since 2010, according to the United States Department of Labor, while hundreds of domestic applicants failed to get the same jobs.

So, despite ranting about 'bad' trade deals with China, Vietnam, Mexico, etc, both he and his daughter have their clothing and accessories made in those countries using cheap sweatshop labour.

And Trump employs temporary cheap foreign labour at Mar-a-Lago when he could easily employ good ol' 'Muricans.

Can you see what he will do if he does bring jobs back to 'Murica?

He will smash the unions and shit all over workers' rights.

What we need is a crystal clear analysis of the supply chains of both The Joker and his daughter, in particular the wages and working conditions at the factoris they use.
