Very embarrassing revelation for the American president. An undocumented immigrant woman has been working for five years at Donald Trump’s Bedminster, New Jersey golf club. Of Guatemalan origin, Victorina Morales, 45, performs several household chores during the regular stays of the US Head of State.

Victorina Morales, who earns $ 13 an hour, says other golf employees are also undocumented.
A reaction to the US President’s remarks
Illegal arrival in the United States in 1999, Victorina Morales entered the service of the residence, which includes a golf course, after presenting false papers. During her job interview, she said that she told her future supervisor that her papers were fake, a confession that did not stop her from getting a job.
She is the one who asked the New York Times, for which she agreed to testify openly, in reaction to the American president’s comments but also to the racist quibbles of a superior.
“We are tired of abuse, insults, the way [Donald Trump] talks about us as he knows we are helping him make money,” Victorina Morales told The New York Times. “We go out of our way to satisfy all these needs and we have to endure that it humiliates us. ”
