Trump Organization accidentally admits it wasn’t using E-Verify to check immigration statuses

Published

on

In a statement about the 18 employees of President Donald Trump’s golf courses, the company inadvertently admitted to not using the E-Verify system to confirm the documented status of the workers.

“We are very proud of our diverse workforce,” the statement from the Trump Organization said. “Our associates mean everything to us and are the heart and soul of our company. We also take our obligations as an employer seriously and regularly conduct audits to ensure full and complete compliance with all legal requirements.”

There were two reports last month where workers confessed publicly they used falsified documents to work for the Trump golf course.

“Upon learning of these claims, we — as a result of this review and to ensure our absolute compliance with the law, any employee who provided falsified documents was immediately terminated,” the statement continued. “Obviously terminating one’s employment is never something we wish to do. Many of our employees have been with us for years and are an extension of our family. Still, after being confronted with the issue, we had no choice.

“To prevent this from happening again, we will soon be instituting E-Verify to all applicable properties and will continue to take swift and appropriate action where necessary,” the statement closed.

The president has been dogged in his pursuit of undocumented immigrants. He’s ranted and raved about them from the moment he announced he was running for the presidency.

A question that Washington Post columnist Max Boot asked on CNN Monday was why Trump wasn’t using E-Verify from the beginning.

Kennedy on November 22, 1963, one of the great historical crimes of American politics.

Gabbard replied she had not finished the book, but “from what I have read, it… speaks to what happened [on November 22] in a way that I haven’t seen anywhere else.”

Trump whines about losing the Time ‘Man of the Year’ award he lost to a teenage girl

Published

on

President Donald Trump goaded his audience into booing a teenager during a campaign rally in Colorado Springs on Thursday.

Trump said, "I got beaten up by Greta" -- in reference to Swedish climate change activist Greta Thunberg, who recently celebrated her 17th birthday.

The leader of the free world went on to complain about Thunberg being declared TIME magazine's "Person of the Year" award in 2019.

He said that many women wish it was still "Man of the Year" and suggested separate categories by gender, which would prevent him from competing against European teenage girls.

At his latest campaign rally in Colorado Springs, Colorado, President Donald Trump launched into one of his typical attacks on media reports that print unflattering information about him, raging about "fake news" and calling it "so disgusting."

He then joked that he will be in office for 26 more years — which would be a flagrant violation of the Constitution's two-term limit for presidents — and that when he does, "they're going to miss us."
