Trump hotel employees say they had to pretend to support the president: 'Inside I was dying'

For employees at the Trump International Hotel who weren't Donald Trump supporters, pretending to be one was an unwritten rule of the job, according to a Washingtonian report on Thursday.

One ex-manager at the luxury hotel in Washington, DC, told the local magazine that she quickly learned on her first days at work she'd have to fake being a fan of the former president. When given a tour of the place by another employee, they had commented that Trump was "such a kind soul" and "so good to the people."

The former manager felt inclined to agree, but later admitted: "Inside, I was dying."

Another past employee, Michel Rivera, who was a bartender at the lobby bar, told the Washingtonian that he had to lie in order to portray himself as part of the Trump crowd.

"I said certain things to play the part and do what I needed to do in order to avoid problems," Rivera told the magazine. "A lot of times, I would end up being like, 'Yes, I support the president. He's an amazing guy.'"

4. Yes because traffic is down and they have to appeal to Biden people now.

Trump is rebranding his hotel. Will help with the sale price.

5. These are former employees

I don't see how this helps Trump in any way.

And I think most always knew this is his it is for anyone that works for him.
