Stephen Miller, who is a White House Senior Adviser, was insulted after buying dinner in a sushi restaurant, The Washington Post reported.
Miller reportedly went to a restaurant near his apartment in downtown Washington and picked up $ 80 in takeout sushi. After the Adviser left the place with food, the bartender followed him to the street calling out his name. He publicly insulted Miller, and also showed him two middle fingers.
It was far from the first time when White House officials faced public backlash amid Trump’s “zero tolerance” immigration policy that has resulted in thousands of children being separated from their families at the border.
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was also asked to leave a Virginia restaurant because of her role in Trump’s administration.
“I explained that the restaurant has certain standards that I feel it has to uphold, such as honesty, and compassion, and cooperation,” the restaurant’s owner later said.
Trump snapped back with tweet saying that “The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning.”
