Trump Wanted to Fire ‘Ugly’ Golf Course Employees

Trump Wanted to Fire 'Ugly' Golf Course EmployeesDonald Trump ordered waitresses at the Trump National Golf Club in California’s Rancho Palos Verdes to be fired if he did not deem them attractive enough, according to an investigation by the Los Angeles Times. When Trump was visiting the course, managers said they felt they needed to schedule only young, thin, pretty women to work those shifts. According to court records, Trump wanted any unattractive women who worked at his club to be fired. He wanted to employ only beautiful women, according to former club staffers. “I had witnessed Donald Trump tell managers many times while he was visiting the club that restaurant hostesses were ‘not pretty enough’ and that they should be fired and replaced with more attractive women,” said Hayley Strozier, who was director of catering at the club until 2008. The comment was made in a sworn declaration during the course of a lawsuit that focused on the rigorous working environment at the club. The Los Angeles Times story on the documents includes several examples of various inappropriate comments Trump made to the employees who he believed were attractive.
