NEW YORK – A former butler of Donald Trump’s made inflammatory remarks about President Obama, leading the GOP presidential frontrunner to call him a “troubled man”.
Donald J. Trump’s former butler – Anthony Senecal – worked for the billionaire for 17 years. He recently wrote via social media that President Obama “should have been taken out by our military and shot as an enemy agent in his first term.”
He also called Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton a four-letter word.
In response, the Donald Trump campaign released a statement in which it “Disavows statements made by Anthony Senecal”.
Anthony Senecal worked within the large staff at Mar-a-Lago from March 5, 1994 through May 15, 2009 until he was terminated. He has not been employed by Mar-a-Lago since then — approximately seven years ago. His statements regarding President Obama and his family are totally disavowed by Donald J. Trump and the Trump Organization. They are disgusting. Mr. Senecal is obviously a very troubled man.
According to reports, Senecal is now under investigation for his statements on President Obama and could face prosecution.
