The woman who managed the construction of Trump Tower, Donald Trump's gleaming black and gold Manhattan headquarters, wrote in her memoirs that the Republican presidential nominee-in-waiting was 'the least sexist boss I ever had,' DailyMail.com can reveal.
But Barbara Res, the first female hard-hat boss to oversee an American skyscraper from start to finish, has become an anti-Trump partisan since then, painting a picture in media interviews of a misogynist playboy who cavalierly wore his biases at work.
Res appeared in a front-page New York Times bash-fest on May 14, complaining that the billionaire builder would boast about his reputation as a sexual romeo and needled her about her weight.
'You like your candy,' Res told the Times she remembered him saying. 'It was him reminding me that I was overweight.'
Her 2013 book, 'All Alone on the 68th Floor,' together with a trove of emails between Res and Trump Organization senior vice president Rhona Graff – seen exclusively by DailyMail.com – provide a radically different look at the former key lieutenant.
They suggest she grew angry with Trump after he declined her repeated requests for a new job three decades later, and after he launched his bid for the presidency, a job for which she saw Hillary Clinton perfectly suited.
