ďAmerica FirstĒ doesnít seem to apply to the presidentís own businesses.

President Donald Trump's businesses donít seem too concerned about ďAmerica First."

A Vox analysis of hiring records for seasonal workers at three Trump properties in New York and Florida revealed that only one out of 144 jobs went to a US worker from 2016 to the end of 2017. Foreign guest workers with H-2B visas got the rest.

The H-2B visa program allows seasonal, non-agricultural employers ó like hotels and ski resorts ó to hire foreign workers when they canít find American ones. The Trump administration temporarily expanded this guest-worker program in 2017 while restricting other avenues of legal immigration, including the H-1B program for high-skilled workers.

The Trump Organization is exactly the kind of company that relies on the H-2B visa program for low-skilled workers.

2. He's been doing it for years. As the H-2B sponsored employer, the employees can only work for him

while in this country. He can pay them what he wants, treat them as he wants, and dismiss them if they don't 'please' him. There'e a reason he chooses low-skilled workers from foreign countries to employ at his business establishments.

We know that, but do his acolytes? Probably not.
