The Trump Foundation made large donations to a number of organizations, around the same time those charities moved their annual large events to the president's posh Florida golf club, according to the Palm Beach Post.

The posts appeared Thursday on the Department of Labor website, showing the Florida club is searching for 21 cooks and 40 waiters and waitresses.

The workers would earn an hourly wage of $12.68 with the possibility of making $19.02 an hour in overtime pay.

The workers are being hired under the H-2 visa law, BuzzFeed News reports, which grants temporary visas to workers from overseas if employers can not find qualified Americans to fill the open positions.

If the Florida resort's request is approved, Mar-a-Lago will have 261 foreign temporary workers on the controversial H-2B visa.

Despite touting a campaign slogan of "America First", Trump has defended the hiring of foreign workers. This request comes just over a year after Trump signed his "Buy American and Hire American" executive order.

Statistics suggest that players have an 89 percent chance of scoring if the team's last two shootouts have been successful. It is probably braver not to, if you are not confident. "Maybe the teams who aren't here weren't as strong this time.

Chase Scott, an event planner with the Salvation Army, said Trump's decision to give them a $25,000 check after the group held a Christmas event at Mar-a-Lago was not part of an incentive.

These ads, however, were not posted until after Mar-a-Lago had already filed requests to hire 70 foreign workers.

Moreover, other Trump businesses have relied on foreign workers for temporary jobs that are apparently not that appealing for the locals.

President Donald Trump's Mar-a-Lago Club wants to hire 61 foreign workers for its upcoming season, which begins in November. "They can't get people George". "But other hotels do the exact same thing".

The Trump Organization hired at least 1,260 foreign workers from 2001 to 2016, according to a CNN analysis.

A review of the Trump Foundation's tax records back to 2008 revealed that almost all of the $706,000 in donations the organization made went to charities that hosted large events at Trump's exclusive south Florida golf resort, according to an analysis by The Palm Beach Post. And the Trump Winery near Charlottesville sought to employ 23 foreigners.
