  • Trump's Mar-a Lago estate in Palm Beach

US President Donald Trump's private Mar-a-Lago golf club in Palm Beach, Florida, has reportedly filed a request with the Department of Labour to hire 61 foreign temporary workers.

The posts appeared Thursday on the Department of Labor website, showing the Florida club is searching for 21 cooks and 40 waiters and waitresses.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Mr. Trump defended the seasonal hires as necessary for business.

Trump has hired 240 foreign workers at Mar-a-Lago since he announced his candidacy for president in June 2015, according to BuzzFeed, which first reported the news.

The postings show that - despite Trump's insistence that immigration is holding down wages and crowding out native-born American workers - his club believes it can not find any Americans in South Florida who are qualified to hold two very common restaurant-industry jobs.

The Trump Organization did not respond to ABC's request for comment.

The server positions will pay a minimum of $12.68 per hour, and cooks will make a minimum of $13.31 an hour.

Another was the Salvation Army, which in the past, held charitable events at both The Breakers and Mar-a-Lago. Since 2010 Mar-a-Lago alone has obtained a total of 500 H-2B visas for seasonal foreign workers, according to The New Yorker.

Trump has criticized USA companies for employing foreign workers, but has defended Mar-a-Lago's hiring practices, saying there aren't enough local applicants.

Rates for cooks start at $13.31 an hour, three cents less than past year.

Mar-a-Lago's competitors in Palm Beach, including other social clubs and hotels, have also used foreign labor. The servers and cooks would work October through May.

Moreover, other Trump businesses have relied on foreign workers for temporary jobs that are apparently not that appealing for the locals.

A review of the Trump Foundation's tax records back to 2008 revealed that almost all of the $706,000 in donations the organization made went to charities that hosted large events at Trump's exclusive south Florida golf resort, according to an analysis by The Palm Beach Post.
