Undocumented Trump Employee Speaks: 'He Knows' We Are 'Helping Him Make Money'

Undocumented immigrants who worked as housekeepers at President Donald Trump's National Golf Club in Bedminster, New Jersey, have revealed details of their time serving the president and his guests.

Diaz discussed the tasks she carried out in her role when she cleaned Trump's residence, down to the way he liked his clothing laundered, which included ironing everything from his white boxers, golf shirts and khaki pants to his sheets and towels.

One of the undocumented immigrants, a woman named Victorina Morales who hails from Guatemala, tells the Times that in the past she has been responsible for making President Donald Trump's bed and cleaning his toilet. The housekeeper has spent the past five years working at the club in Bedminster, New Jersey.

Morales-who is still now employed at the gold club-also revealed she will be looking into filing a lawsuit claiming abuse and discrimination after a supervisor made hurtful comments about her intelligence and undocumented status. She also shared with the Times that the president was particular about having his items, as well as Melania's and Barron's, washed with a "special detergent" in a washing machine separate from the rest of the club's residents. Diaz told the Times that "many people without papers" are working on Trump's property, and a least two of their supervisors are aware of this because of steps they've taken to help them keep their jobs. Morales and a few other workers are driven to work every day by a company shuttle because the golf course knows they can't legally get a driver's license. When the Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C. opened during his campaign in late 2016, Trump declared "we didn't have one illegal immigrant on the job".

Morales told the paper she was hurt by Trump's public comments. The native Guatemalan woman endured comments from a supervisor who attacked her intelligence and appeared to hold her immigration status over her head.

Morales and Diaz both said they have interacted with Trump directly a number of times, describing him as a good tipper but "extremely meticulous" to the point that he once closely inspected the edges of frames for dust. "We sweat it out and attend to his every need and have to put up with his humiliation".

Victorina Morales and Sandra Diaz approached the New York Times with their stories through an immigration lawyer.

Morales said she chose to speak out because she felt exhausted of the president's unceasing vilification of immigrants.
