As President Donald Trump continues to threaten another federal government shutdown, the commander-in-chief’s golf courses continue to fire undocumented workers, The New York Times reports.

Earlier in the month, The Times reported that the Trump National Golf Club Philadelphia — which is in Pine Hill, N.J. — concealed from the Secret Service the existence of undocumented workers.

“The club in Pine Hill, N.J., known as the Trump National Golf Club Philadelphia, was the third Trump property where undocumented workers have been fired since The New York Times reported in December that the Trump club in Bedminster, N.J., for years employed immigrants who were in the country unlawfully,” the newspaper explained.

As part of Trump’s efforts to get Congress to pay for a border wall, he has sought to portray undocumented immigrants as a crisis — a claim undercut by his employment practices.

“The revelations about the undocumented workers has been an embarrassment for the Trump Organization, coming to light as Mr. Trump has railed against illegal immigration, blamed undocumented immigrants for crime and pledged to build a wall along the Mexican border to keep more people from entering the country unlawfully,” The Times noted.

Eric Trump, the president’s second son, has complained it is “truly heartbreaking” that the press is reporting on Trump’s hypocrisy.

Published

There was some drama on Twitter on Friday when a four-term Republican congressman dunked on a Texas Republican who won a seat in Congress but has yet to be sworn in.

It started when Rep. Tulsi Gabbard (D-HI) urged President Donald Trump to pardon Edward Snowden and Julian Assange.

Rep.-elect Tony Gonzales (R-TX) called out Gabbard for being "full of more than just turkey."

Snowden and Assange are Russian agents who pose a direct threat to US National interests. Clearly @TulsiGabbard is full of more than just turkey. https://t.co/RI4XgdZRUy
