EDITORIAL: Let’s get a few things straight here. First and foremost, why do people who are reporting this story keep calling this model a woman? She was SEVENTEEN YEARS OLD/ She was a TEEN! If there was any pressure to perform sex for work, this could be sex trafficking. This could also be labor trafficking.When bringing girls across borders, we have to look at these facts. I would like to know if any of these girls were presented with ‘opportunities’ to earn money in other ways. The best way to get a girl into prostitution is to get her away from her support network and then take her work away. Next comes the offer from the network pimps to help the girls ‘make some money on the side.’
There really is no such thing as a legit or safe modeling agency. Even if the agency itself doesn’t actively pimp the girls out, they are all well aware of the sexual predators in their industries who they feed these girls to. There’s very few, if any, models who have become rich or famous without being prostituted out to someone in order to get ahead, in order to get that hot assignment, in order to work with the ‘in’ group. Many times, they don’t even realize the guy made a deal with their agent or someone else who wants to get ahead to deliver a girl who’s easy to manipulate. I’m not judging the girls who end up there at all. A few of them turn into criminal recruiters as soon as they get there to stay off their own backs, but most of these girls are innocent lambs being led to the slaughter by an ancient network of very experienced sexual predators.
My guess is these teen girls and young women suing Donald Trump weren’t having any pimping of their souls and that’s why they were left to fend for themselves!
Donald Trump’s grandfather was a pimp. This is a fact. Donald Trump has married foreign ‘models’ more than once. Donald Trump is the FIRST pageant owner EVER to pimp his contestants in a nude competition. If Donald Trump becomes president, you can bet your daughter’s lives he will be happy to legalize prostitution so they can all be pimped out to the highest bidders. That’s where Donald Trump believes a woman’s assets are best utilized. And THAT’S because Donald Trump is a PIMP!
You vote for Donald Trump, you vote to sell your daughters and granddaughters souls because that’s what PIMPS do!

Imagine being promised fame and money with a modeling contract, only to make a few thousand dollars in three years. Now imagine leaving your country to do this and not being able to pick up side jobs to pay the bills because your visa doesn’t allow it.
That’s what happened to Jamaican model Alexia Palmer who moved to the U.S. when she was 17 after signing a contract with Trump Models. The agency, founded by presidential candidate Donald Trump, helped her get an H-1B visa, which allows foreign workers with special skills to temporarily come to the United States to work.
If you’ll recall, one of Trump’s issues right now on his campaign is how he wants to eliminate the widespread abuse of these visas. But maybe someone should tell him that people who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones….
A civil lawsuit filed by Alexia alleges that the agency abused the visa and defrauded the government on the application by promising her more money — $75,000 a year to be exact. Besides the fact that she didn’t book as many jobs as promised, the money she did earn was cut even more due to commission for the agency, administration fees, and having to pay for things like a $75 walking lesson and a $200 dermatology appointment. She described her ordeal as being treated “like a slave.”
According to CNN, Alexia only received $4,985 over three years — a far cry from what they told her and the U.S. government to expect.
This is a big deal for three reasons. First, a young girl was deceived by a big company and ultimately left for broke. Second, Trump has been condemning visa program abuse during his candidacy, so this whole situation makes him seem very hypocritical.
“I will end forever the use of the H-1B as a cheap labor program, and institute an absolute requirement to hire American workers first for every visa and immigration program,” he wrote on his website. “No exceptions.”
The lawsuit is currently seeking approval by a judge to be turned into a class-action suit, where more models in the agency could come forward. It’ll definitely be interesting to see what happens, especially as Trump’s trying to wrap up the nomination with next week’s primaries in Florida and Ohio. And this isn’t the first time Trump has been accused of defrauding people. A group of 5,000 former Trump University students are suing the candidate for fraud after false promises were made by the school to the tune of up to $35,000 each in some cases. And if you’re wondering, no it wasn’t a real university, and that’s why they’re suing.
