The point being, ALL tourist/seasonal employers do this. ALL of them do because not enough Americans apply for a temporary job that only lasts for a few months. It's been this way forever.
From the daily news article:
Missed this in the article?

The director of a Palm Beach job-placement service, Tom Veenstra, told The Times that he has plenty of qualified employees for the positions at Mar-a-Lago

So, don't "ask" anyone to come up with sources. You don't really want them.

BULL. you just can't help but support Trump even as he undercuts the USA by outsourcing his labor needs, just like his kids do too.

Where's the $20/hr. coming from? Is that what he's offering as pay for some of these jobs? Hell, I know quite a few people who live in Florida who'd pick up and move for a paycheck like that.

None. Zip. Nada.

Doubling the membership fee to $200,000/ year and raising fees for lodging, dining, golf, spa and so on created more than enough to pay a US worker say, $5/ hour more than the competition. Problem solved.

Instead, Trump Org chooses to increase their own profits. Trump is the sole beneficiary of his trusts.
plus he did it last year.

I bet Americans are.
Didn't you know that it closes down for the summer?

Oh, duhh... no wonder trump has moved to his resort in NJ. While maralago is closed, there is nobody there to impress with his importance.
