A former Trump employee has changed their tune about the Republican presidential nominee. Barbara Res managed the construction of the Trump Tower. She was the first woman to oversee the construction of skyscraper from the beginning until the end. In her memoir, “All Alone on the 68th Floor” she referenced Trump as the ‘least sexist boss’ she ever had. Now she has flipped the coin.
On May 14th she appeared in the New York Times making remarks against the Republican nominee. She referenced how he would say, “you like your candy.” Reminding her that she was overweight.
She insisted that his attitude got worse as time went on and deteriorated after she left. “He was a different guy. He was a celebrity; he was big-time. He never went anywhere without a bodyguard, he was very full of himself and overwhelmed by his own success, and he was phenomenally successful at that time. He was just a different person.”
Trump’s response to Res’s accusations and statements came in the form of a tweet. “I gave a woman named Barbara Res a top N.Y. construction job, when that was unheard of, and now she is nasty, So much for a nice thank you!” In another tweet he expanded, “What Barbara Res does not say is that she would call my company endlessly, and for years, trying to come back. I said no.” He insisted he hired women in an industry at a time when it wasn’t popular and that he did it over the objection of his father.
In the memoirs Res included emails from herself to a Trump executive. The emails indicate that Res grew upset with Trump after he refused to rehire her. Res explained how she didn’t have many options in the legal field, a field of work that she was now pursuing.
Trump had provided her good letters of recommendation for the New Jersey Bar and law school. “I was wondering if you had anything for me in your empire or could recommend something. I hate to ask favors, and I don’t mean to take advantage, but I am in a particularly precarious spot,” she said in one email. Her requests were ignored and eventally rejected.
“When she left, she didn’t last very long in the business,’ he said. ‘Then she wanted to come back. And for many years there were these letters and emails and phone calls. Just more and more,” maintained Trump.
Res is now supporting Democratic front runner Hillary Clinton.
