Former Trump Organization Executive Claims Trump Keeps His Employees Loyal By Giving Their Children Jobs

This doesn't surprise me a bit.

It’s pretty safe to say that we’re neck-deep in the investigations against disgraced ex-president Trump and his business, the Trump Organization, now. Prosecutors have long since elevated their probe to a criminal level and several reports today have indicated that actual criminal charges may be coming down the pike soon — something Trump’s legal team only has until Monday to try to combat.

With all the heat that’s building around the former guy and his business, it seems a bit odd that pretty much no one has yet flipped against Donald Trump to save their own skin. Even Trump Organization CFO Allen Weisselberg, who’s reportedly facing down some serious criminal charges himself in connection to it all, seems to be as tight-lipped as ever.

It makes you wonder where all of this loyalty to the ex-president president is coming from, considering I can’t imagine he’s a joy to work with or anything.

But one former Trump Organization executive is now shedding a little light on what Donald Trump is doing to keep his people loyal and complacent — apparently, he’s involving his employees’ children.

Former executive vice president at the Trump Organization Barbara Res, who served in her position for over 20 years, told Insider today that she believes Donald gives his employees’ children jobs so that, should their parents be disloyal, their children will suffer and lose their jobs as well.

“Weisselberg still isn’t cracking from what I understand,” Res told the publication. “What kind of loyalty is that? That’s incredible loyalty. I don’t know what Trump is promising him, but I think that Trump has engendered that kind of loyalty from Weisselberg, and I think probably Calamari too.”

“Not only would he get fired — his son would lose his job.”

In addition to embroiled their children in the business fiascos, Trump would allegedly give large gifts and perks to his employees — something both Res and Allen Weisselberg’s ex-daughter-in-law Jennifer Weisselberg think was a ploy to gain loyalty from employees.

Prosecutors are looking into these possibly tax-free perks as part of their investigation.

It seems there aren’t many lows that the corrupt ex-president won’t sink to in an effort to keep his people loyal to the death.
