Trump, however, doesn’t need to be elected president to start hiring Americans for jobs now being given to foreigners.

A CBS4 News review of U.S. Labor Department records found that Trump businesses have requested hundreds of visas in recent years claiming they were unable to find Americans willing to do even the most basic tasks.

And that is particularly true at Trump’s famed Palm Beach estate called Mar-A-Lago.

Every year since at least 2008, Mar-A-Lago has requested anywhere from 70 to 90 visas to bring foreign workers into the country as cooks, waiters and housekeepers. The starting pay is between $10 and $12 an hour.
