When Trump National Golf Club in Rancho Palos Verdes opened for play in 2005, Trump would only by infrequently, but when he did he only wanted pretty women serving him, according to a lawsuit.
But when Trump did visit, the club’s managers went on full alert, and scheduled the young, thin, pretty women on the staff to work in the clubhouse restaurant. And all this was because when Trump saw less-attractive women working at his club, according to court records, he wanted them fired.
"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,” Hayley Strozier, who was director of catering at the club until 2008, said in a sworn declaration.
Initially, Trump gave this command “almost every time” he visited, Strozier said. 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.
Trump’s record with women has had renewed attention after this week’s presidential debate, when Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton told the story of a former beauty pageant winner who said Trump called her “Miss Piggy” when she gained weight.
