Montana Tavern Rejects Donald Trump, Jr. And Kimberly Guilfoyle: ‘They’re Not Welcome Here’
Those in President Donald Trump’s inner circle continue to face difficulties eating in public.
Earlier this year, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was kicked out of the Red Hen restaurant in Virginia and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen was chased out of a Mexican restaurant in Washington, DC.
Now, President Trump’s eldest child is having problems securing a barstool in Montana.
On Tuesday, Republican Senate candidate Matt Rosendale, who is challenging Sen. Jon Tester (D-MT) in the 2018 midterm elections, announced that Donald Trump, Jr. and his girlfriend, former Fox News personality Kimberly Guilfoyle, would be campaigning in Bozeman, Montana.
Rosendale’s campaign announced Trump’s namesake son and Guilfoyle would speak at the Midtown Tavern next Tuesday.
But the pair were refused by the tavern the Bozeman Daily Chronicle reports.
“They are not welcome,” manager Jeff Wilcox told the newspaper.
“We definitely don’t want to take political sides. That’s just not who we are,” he explained.
In 2017, Donald Trump, Jr. joined his brother Eric Trump in campaigning for a different Senate hopeful in Montana. The Trump brothers backed Republican Troy Downing.
Despite the star-powered assistance of the Trump brothers, Downing received less than 20 percent of the vote in the June primary. Downing subsequently pleaded guilty to impersonating a Montanan.
The Rosendale campaign says they are searching for an alternative venue for the campaign event.
