Undocumented Trump Employee Speaks: 'He Knows' We Are 'Helping Him Make Money'

The New York Times reports that Morales admitted she isn't the only worker at the club who is in the country illegally either.

During her interview, Morales suggested that, since their supervisor was aware of their immigration status, it's possible President Trump also knows.

Morales-who is still now employed at the gold club-also revealed she will be looking into filing a lawsuit claiming abuse and discrimination after a supervisor made hurtful comments about her intelligence and undocumented status.

During the campaign, the Washington Post reported that Trump relied in part on illegal immigrant workers as part of the $200 renovation of a luxury hotel in Washington, D.C. Trump denied it, saying: "I didn't hire one illegal immigrant to build Trump International Hotel on Pennsylvania Avenue, ' getting the property's name in his response". An employee of the golf course drives her and a group of others to work every day, she says, because it is known that they can not legally obtain driver's licenses. The paper's refusal in the article to follow the money in the immigration debate undermines the newspaper's claim to be a supporter of ordinary people against powerful people. She is now a legal resident of the United States.

A housekeeper who worked at the Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster, N.J., for three years is pulling back the curtain on President Trump's dirty laundry. "We sweat it out and attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation".

'You did a really great job, ' he told Morales at one point, giving her a $100 bill.

The Times reported that she has applied for protection under asylum laws and is exploring a lawsuit claiming workplace abuse and discrimination.

"We have tens of thousands of employees across our properties and have very strict hiring practices", said the Trump Organization in an emailed statement.

'I never imagined, as an immigrant from the countryside in Guatemala, that I would see such important people close up, ' said Morales.

Both women described the president as demanding but kind, sometimes offering hefty tips.

Morales, who earns US$13 an hour, said employees had become increasingly upset by Trump's negative rhetoric about Hispanic immigrants and said a supervisor berated them as "stupid illegal immigrants".

Morales told the news outlet she expects to be reprimanded severely with the report coming out. "If an employee submitted false documentation in an attempt to circumvent the law, they will be terminated immediately".

The Trump Organization did not comment on Thursday about the undocumented workers.

The White House declined to comment. He called for a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, mass deportations of the undocumented, and an expansion of E-Verify, the federal government's online tool to check whether employees are legally eligible to work. "Why wouldn't he figure it out?"
