President Donald Trump’s son, Eric Trump, had some harsh words for the Democrats after he was allegedly spat on by an employee of an upscale Chicago restaurant.
While out at the cocktail lounge The Aviary in Chicago on Tuesday, an employee of the restaurant approached the president’s son and allegedly spat in his face
The incident was first reported by NBC 5 Chicago’s Mary Ann Ahern on Twitter.
The employee was taken into custody by the president’s son’s Secret Service detail before police arrived shortly after. It is not known whether or not the alleged spitter will face charges.

While speaking to Breitbart News later Tuesday night, Trump called the incident “a purely disgusting act” perpetrated by “somebody who clearly has emotional problems” before slamming the act as showing how the Democratic Party has “very little civility.”
“For a party that preaches tolerance, this once again demonstrates they have very little civility,” said the president’s son. “When somebody is sick enough to resort to spitting on someone, it just emphasizes a sickness and desperation and the fact that we’re winning.”
The Aviary — a restaurant that specializes in cocktails and “molecular gastronomy” — is owned by fine-dining restauranteur Grant Achatz, who also owns the Chicago eateries Alinea and Next. Neither he nor The Aviary have made public comments regarding the alleged spitting.
Trump has gone after the Democrats for not being a fan of his father’s “winning” before.
As IJR Red previously reported, the president’s son blasted Democratic lawmakers earlier this year for not working with the president towards his campaign promise of building a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, saying that he believes the Democrats “realize” that President Trump is “winning on everything else” and that “all they’re fighting for” was to “make sure he doesn’t achieve the agenda he promised to achieve.”
