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 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.

Trump's Palm Beach business filed requests with the U.S. Labor Department for additional visas for foreign servers and cooks, according to records submitted Thursday and Friday. At the end of mentioned period, they would be expected to return home.

"It's called Palm Beach social season", then-candidate Trump told ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos during a 2016 interview in Colorado Springs.

A year ago the club hired 70 foreign workers under the H-2B visa program, which is for seasonal, non-agriculture employees.

H-2B visas, however, can only be obtained if there are no American workers available, which the President has insisted otherwise throughout his campaign and presidency.

The West Palm Beach senior care charity MorseLife Foundation received a $25,000 donation from the foundation in 2012, the after it moved its annual dinner dance to Mar-a-Lago.

Trump has for years been staffing the resort, built by the wife of stockbroker E.F. Hutton in 1927, with foreign employees. That same week, however, "Mar-a-Lago was applying for foreign worker visas".

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 freaky Trump wants foreign workers over US residents for his beloved resort.

Last year, after Trump said there were "very fine people" among violent crowds of protesters in Charlottesville, many of Trump's longtime charity clients quit. "But other hotels do the exact same thing". Many resorts in the Palm Beach area use the program to find seasonal help. The servers and cooks would work October through May.
