Fourteen employees of Donald Trump’s casinos in Atlantic City, New Jersey were fired in December 2014 , without notice, after Trump apparently came to the conclusion that those individuals, who are all of Kenyan descent, were “Barack Obama sympathizers” and “suspected Obama moles,” whom Obama allegedly sent to infiltrate Trump’s businesses as covert operatives.
The fourteen employees, who range in age from 19 to 57 and all of whom are either first-generation legal immigrants or second-generation American-born citizens, were notified on Friday of their termination shortly after arriving at work. Their pink slips were accompanied by letters from Donald Trump himself, who angrily explained why they were all losing their jobs.
“As you might be aware, I’m thinking about planning a run for the White House in 2016, which means I need to stay on my toes and protect my future interests,” Trump says in the termination letters. “Each of you pose a serious threat to the security of my possible future presidential campaign. I’ve looked into your records. As far as we can tell, you’re all Barack Obama sympathizers who would do anything to derail my presidential campaign. I’m taking a precaution here and firing all suspected Obama moles before they cause a bunch of trouble for my campaign. Sorry, but YOU’RE FIRED!”
But according to those employees who lost their jobs, the only thing they all seem to have in common is that they’re Kenyan-Americans. “I never voted for Barack Obama. I have never voted in the United States at all,” says Damaris Mburu, 19, who worked as a waitress in a restaurant inside Trump’s Taj Mahal casino. “I am here in America on a student visa. I’m not legally allowed to vote in American elections, unless I am able to get a green card. So I do not understand why Mr. Trump thinks I am an `Obama mole.’ I don’t even know what that means.”
Victor Kemboi, 29, was born in the United States… and says he voted for Mitt Romney. “I don’t believe Barack Obama has been good for America. I voted for Romney in 2012, and I’ll be supporting Jeb Bush in 2016. Just because I’m African-American doesn’t mean I’m a democrat, and just because my parents immigrated here from Kenya doesn’t mean I support Barack Obama. But I believe Donald Trump has the right to hire and fire whoever he wants, even if that’s me and even if I did nothing wrong.”
