“Do as I say, not as I do” is a trademark of this presidency.
Morales told the Times that her job at Bedminster always left her surprised at the people she would encounter.
“I never imagined, as an immigrant from the countryside in Guatemala, that I would see such important people close up,” Morales said. She added that Trump’s vitriolic rhetoric against immigrants has hurt her and her colleagues’ feelings.
“We are tired of the abuse, the insults, the way he talks about us when he knows that we are here helping him make money,” she said. “We sweat it out to attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation.”
One of Morales’s coworkers, Sandra Diaz, was an undocumented worker from Costa Rica when she was employed at Bedminster from 2010-2013. Diaz told the Times that workers with fake papers were hired regularly and that management knew about it.
“There are many people without papers,” said Diaz.
The Times wrote:
“There is no evidence that Mr. Trump or Trump Organization executives knew of their immigration status. But at least two supervisors at the club were aware of it, the women said, and took steps to help workers evade detection and keep their jobs.”
Morales gave additional details about her run-ins with Trump, for whom she would perform housekeeping and maintenance services.
“Morales has had dealings with Trump that go back years,” wrote the Times, “and her husband has confirmed that she would on occasion come home jubilant because the club owner had paid her a compliment, or bestowed on her a $50 or sometimes a $100 tip.”
In one instance in 2012, Trump asked Morales to accompany him to the clubhouse, where he proceeded to check for dust.
“You did a really great job,” Trump allegedly told Morales before handing her a $100 tip.
