Trump refused to employ Americans to get cheaper foreign labor

Trump’s Message to Foreign Workers: You’re Hired

Donald J. Trump has stoked crowds by promising to bring back jobs, but he has also pursued more than 500 visas for foreign workers at his Mar-a-Lago club in Florida.
Trump turned down over 94 percent of American applicants and instead hired people with "H" visas according to the report.  Trump now says he will turn down applicants for the H1B visa program.   He has apparently been critical of Disney for doing what he did.  Charles C.W. Cooke has more on the apparent political conversion on the issue.

This seems to fit into the Cruz criticism of Trump as a "P.T. Barnum."  He apparently believes he can fool most of the people most of the time.
