Undocumented immigrant workers who worked at Trump’s properties described the president as obsessed with Tic-Tacs and slathering Bronx skin makeup on his face.
The Washington Post reported:
But the undocumented workers were often left to perform the most intimate and personal work. Those who cooked and served Trump knew that he liked his cheeseburgers well done and his Diet Coke in small glass bottles with a plastic straw that no one could be seen touching.
Trump loved Tic Tacs. But not an arbitrary amount. He wanted, in his bedroom bureau at all times, two full containers of white Tic Tacs and one container that was half full. The same rule applied to the Bronx Colors-brand face makeup from Switzerland that Trump slathered on — two full containers, one half full — even if it meant the housekeepers had to regularly bring new shirts from the pro shop because of the rust-colored stains on the collars. A special washing machine in the laundry room was reserved for his wife Melania Trump’s clothing.
On top of all of Trump’s other problems, he seems to be OCD about smearing bronze make up all over his face at all times. If case anyone was ever curious about why the President Of The United States looks like an oompa loompa who escaped from Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, the answer is Bronx color makeup.
