Trump's Mar-a Lago estate in Palm Beach

Just over a year after Donald Trump signed his "Buy American and Hire American" executive order, his Mar-a-Lago golf resort has filed for permission to hire 61 foreign workers.

The president's opulent Florida beach club wants to hire 21 immigrant cooks from October to May, and another 40 temporary foreign wait staff.

Trump's Palm Beach business filed requests with the U.S. Labor Department for additional visas for foreign servers and cooks, according to records submitted Thursday and Friday.

The Post found a pattern that showed $25,000 donations were typically given to a charity by the Trump Foundation after an event was relocated to Mar-a-Lago from a different venue.

In order to obtain H-2B visas, employers are required to prove there aren't enough USA workers who are "able, willing, qualified and available" to do the work.

He sure loves hiring foreign workers on the cheap, though!

The seasonal workers would be required to return to their home country once their H-2B visas expire.

This year, the pay for a cook at Mar-a-Lago starts at $13.31 per hour - down three cents from the year before.

While our big, sweaty grandpa president is busy tweeting that immigrants don't deserve due-process in immigration courts, the business bearing his name (which he pretty much still runs) is trying to hire more foreign workers. But the base salary for servers rose to $12.68 per hour this year from $11.88 per hour the year before. Many resorts in the Palm Beach area use the program to find seasonal help.

Chase Scott, an event planner with the Salvation Army, said Trump's decision to give them a $25,000 check after the group held a Christmas event at Mar-a-Lago was not part of an incentive.

In 2017, Trump urged employers to "hire American" in his inaugural address before turning around, raising the national cap on H-2 visas issued yearly, and then nearly immediately applying for 76 new foreign-worker jobs at Mar-a-Lago.

The Trump Organization hired at least 1,260 foreign workers from 2001 to 2016, according to a CNN analysis.
