Clinton: Trump 'used undocumented workers' to build new luxury hotel

Hillary Clinton on Wednesday hammered Donald Trumpfor using undocumented workers and foreign-made products to build his new luxury hotel, arguing that it’s the latest example of how the Republican presidential nominee has “stiffed” U.S. workers and businesses. 

The Democratic nominee’s criticisms at a Florida rally come as Trump briefly left the campaign trail to promote his Trump International Hotel in Washington, D.C., at a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

“Today he’s in Washington, D.C., to open his new luxury hotel,” Clinton said in Lake Worth. “While the hotel may be new, it’s the same old story.

“If you have friends who are thinking of voting for Trump, I want you to tell them he relied on undocumented workers to make his project cheaper, and most of the products in the rooms were made overseas, and he even sued to get his taxes lowered."

Clinton continued to needle Trump for contradicting his campaign platform, which has been to deport immigrants living in the United States illegally.

“But we know he’s used undocumented workers, and that’s one of the things he’s run his campaign on: about deporting undocumented workers.”

“He’s used undocumented workers; he’s made his products in foreign countries; he’s used Chinese steel instead of American steel, so you can talk a good game, but let’s look at the facts, and the facts show he has stiffed American workers. He has stiffed American businesses.”
