A Donald Trump supporter has claimed she was thrown out of a Mexican restaurant in New York for wearing a â€˜Make America Great Againâ€™ 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: â€˜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.â€™
After complaining to the restaurant via their Facebook page, she was reportedly told they â€˜were thrown out for being rude to the staff and customers (we were seated alone)â€™.
Ms Levy fired back on her Facebook page that â€˜all we did was sit quietly at the table where we were seatedâ€¦ when our waitress approached to take our orders â€“ then she was summoned and I could hear a bellowing voice telling her not to serve usâ€™.
In an interview with the New York Post, she claimed: â€˜
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 â€˜dumpingâ€™ its worst citizens including â€˜rapists and drug dealersâ€™ at the U.S. border.In May, the 70-year-old promised that if heâ€™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.
