Between Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort and one of his golf courses in Florida, the president’s business ventures in the Sunshine State applied for 76 visas to hire foreign nationals.
The real kicker? It was during his administration’s much-trumpeted “Made in America Week.”
This sort of hypocrisy and generally bad optics might ultimately be excusable from another administration, but coming from a commander-in-chief who swept into office on a wave of nationalism and promises to “build a wall and make Mexico pay for it,” the disconnect is simply too glaring.
The vast majority—fully 70—of the requested visas were for Mar-a-Lago, Trump’s “Winter White House” to which he scurried on an almost weekly basis following his inauguration, at great cost to taxpayers.
