Donald Trump Jr. and Eric Trump are stark reminders that there is no such thing as a “master race.” While it remains to be seen whether one or the other, or both (fingers crossed) will be indicted for the many dubious things they’ve done over the past couple of years, one thing is for sure: the mini-Donnies aren’t the sharpest gold tweezers in the luxury Dopp bag. The Washington Post just profiled Juan Quintero, a 42-year-old man who worked for 18 years as a greenskeeper at Trump National Golf Club Hudson Valley in Hopewell Junction, New York, as well as the caretaker of the Trump sons’ hunting retreat named Leather Hill Preserve. Quintero lost his job this January because he’s an undocumented worker. Of course, he’s been an undocumented worker for all 18 years that the Trump family relied on him to work 13-hour days between the two Trump-owned sites.
“All of the years you give them, and they just let you go,” Quintero said in a recent interview at his home in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. “They do not say, ‘Let’s do something, let’s try to help you.’ They simply said, ‘Your documents are not valid,’ and that is it.”
The Post reports that Quintero was able to show their reporters a ton of text messages showing Eric Trump’s reliance on Quintero. Did either of the Trumps know that Quintero was undocumented? It’s hard to say, considering the family’s long history of exploiting cheap, undocumented immigrant labor. Quintero came forward, joining many undocumented workers the Trump organization has tried to sweep under the rug. It’s tough to convince the nation there’s a border crisis when you can’t be bothered to even pretend you aren’t a ginormous hypocrite.
