A Donald Trump supporter has claimed she was thrown out of a Mexican restaurant in New York for wearing a ‘Make America Great Again’ hat and button.
Esther Levy visited the Cancun Inn eatery in Sugar Loaf, NY, with a retired local judge after coming back from a July 4th Great American Weekend Festival on Sunday.
In an outraged post on the New York For Donald Trump 2016 Facebook page, the 61-year-old alleged: ‘The co-owner threw us out while screaming at me that he does not serve Trump supporters and we have to leave right away and never come back.’
Ms Levy fired back on her Facebook page that ‘all we did was sit quietly at the table where we were seated… when our waitress approached to take our orders – then she was summoned and I could hear a bellowing voice telling her not to serve us’.
In an interview with the New York Post, she claimed: ‘
She [the waitress] seemed very surprised by it all and was told to refuse us service. We just got up and started to leave.
Trump last year claimed Mexico is ‘dumping’ its worst citizens including ‘rapists and drug dealers’ at the U.S. border.In May, the 70-year-old promised that if he’s elected as president he would force Mexico to pay for a border wall by threatening to cut off payments that immigrants send home to the country.
