Over the past decade, President Donald Trump's private foundation, the Donald J. Trump Foundation, gave hundreds of thousands of dollars in donations to charitable organizations after they hosted events at his private Mar-a-Lago golf club in Palm Beach, Florida.
The posts appeared Thursday on the Department of Labor website, showing the Florida club is searching for 21 cooks and 40 waiters and waitresses.
While our big, sweaty grandpa president is busy tweeting that immigrants don't deserve due-process in immigration courts, the business bearing his name (which he pretty much still runs) is trying to hire more foreign workers.
President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club wants to hire 61 foreign workers for its upcoming season, which begins in November. The H-2B visa is for "temporary non-agricultural workers".
The lawsuit claims that the charity was used to promote Trump's private businesses and his presidential campaign, also alleging that Trump requested foundation funds be used to settle a case between the city of Palm Beach, Fla., and Mar-a-Lago.
The latest request sets the wages at $12.68 per hour for the servers and $13.31 for the cooks.

"It's very, very hard to get people", he said during a GOP primary debate in 2016.
For all his tough talk on immigration from his election campaign to the ongoing migrant crisis brought about by his draconian policies, it seems rather freakish Trump wants foreign workers over US residents for his beloved resort.
In 2017, Trump urged employers to "hire American" in his inaugural address before turning around, raising the national cap on H-2 visas issued yearly, and then nearly immediately applying for 76 new foreign-worker jobs at Mar-a-Lago. "But other hotels do the exact same thing".
The request, first reported by BuzzFeed, was made despite Trump's urging American companies to hire locals, arguing immigration puts pressure on wages and takes jobs away from hard-working Americans.
The newspaper reported almost 300 USA workers had applied or been referred for jobs as waiters, waitresses, cooks and housekeepers but only 17 were hired. The Trump Winery in Charlottesville, Va., is looking for 23 H-2B visas.
