Apparently Donald Trump has a hidden phobia. Even though he is running for president, he still finds time to dine at various restaurants located at his Trump-branded properties.
BLT Prime by David Burke is a 120-seat steakhouse at Washington, D.C.'s Trump International Hotel. The restaurant is located on a mezzanine of the hotel and curious patrons come in to question the staff about Republican candidate Donald Trump.
The new hotel also has disputes with some of its cafes and eateries. Jose Andres, the Spanish American chef who popularized tapas, decided to cancel his plans to open a restaurant at the hotel after Trump vilified Mexican immigrants.
However, it seems the GOP nominee has a problem with the location of its hotel’s main restaurant, BLT Prime, as well.
Tom Sietsema, a food writer for The Washington Post, visited the steakhouse, and like many voters was curious about the Republican candidate as much as the restaurant. He asked his server if Trump had eaten at the place.
The server said, “He’s been downstairs.”
Apparently Trump does not like to eat upstairs for “security reasons,” the server reportedly told Sietsema. “The mogul didn’t venture higher, out of concern that someone might push him,” he added.
It seems Trump is not just mistrustful of Mexicans and Muslims invading America, but if the server’s words are anything to go by, also fears would-be assassins whose preferred method of taking out the candidate would be to push him off high rise buildings.
Talk about being paranoid!
