Sarah Sanders says she was kicked out of restaurant because she works for Trump
(CNN) — White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said she was kicked out of a Virginia restaurant by its owner because she works for President Donald Trump.
“Last night I was told by the owner of Red Hen in Lexington, VA to leave because I work for @POTUS and I politely left,” Sanders posted on Twitter Saturday.
“Her actions say far more about her than about me,” Sanders said. “I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”
When reached for comment by CNN, Sanders referred to the tweet she posted. CNN has reached out to the owner of the restaurant for comment.
Other officials have been confronted over the Trump administration’s immigration policy as they dined out this week.
Tuesday night, protesters booed and shouted at Department of Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen as she dined at a Mexican restaurant in Washington, DC.
