New Lawsuit: Trump Pushed To Fire Women Who Weren’t ‘Pretty Enough’
According to court records obtained by The New York Times, Donald Trump wanted only pretty employees and told managers at the Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes to fire restaurant hostesses who were “not pretty enough” and replace them with “more attractive women.”
Hayley Strozier, former catering director at the golf club, said in her court declaration that whenever Trump visited the course, the club’s managers went on alert. They scheduled young, thin, pretty women on staff to work the clubhouse restaurant — because when Trump saw less-attractive women working at his club, “he wanted them fired.”
Strozier said that Trump gave this command “almost every time” he visited, The Times wrote. Managers eventually changed employee schedules “so that the most attractive women were scheduled to work when Mr. Trump was scheduled to be at the club,” she said.
Another employee, Sue Kwiatkowski, also testified that managers worked to schedule their most attractive hostesses when Mr. Trump was in town because he said “people like to see good looking people,” according to her legal declaration in Los Angeles Superior Court.
According to the report, the lawsuit focused on the course’s high-pressure work culture. Employees said they were not allowed to take the breaks required under California law.
Donald Trump has struggled to win the support of female voters. In the past, the Republican presidential nominee has insulted women’s appearances, sometimes calling them “pigs” or “dogs.”
