Reported by Reuters on Sunday (24/06/2018), White House spokesman is Sarah Sanders. He said it happened on Friday (22/6), at a restaurant in Virginia.
“I was told last night by Red Hen’s owner in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I went politely,” Sanders said in an official account of the White House Press Secretariat on Saturday (23/6).
POTUS which he called is short for President of The United States, aka President of United States.
His action talks more about him than about me. And I always do my best to treat people, including treating people who differ with me, with respect, and I will continue to do so, “Sanders said.
The Red Hen, the restaurant that drove Sanders, has not confirmed Sanders’ statement. Their site is also inactive. Many people criticize the attitude of the restaurant.
This weekend, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security Kirsten Nielsen has been attacked by protesters in a Mexican restaurant, in Washington DC. The protesters shouted “Shame! Shame!”
Nielsen finally ‘pull’ from the restaurant. The protests took place as the Trump Administration championed a tough immigration policy on the US-Mexico border.
