Eating in a restaurant doesn’t seem easy these days for anyone affiliated with Trump. It seems to be becoming a trend to forbid the presence of Trump Administration officials in restaurants. In late June, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders was thrown out of The Red Hen in Lexington, Virginia by the restaurant owner, and Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nelson was chased out of a Mexican restaurant in Washington D.C.

On Tuesday, in anticipation of Donald Trump’s Jr.’s visit to Bozeman, Montana, with his girlfriend Fox News personality Kimberly Guilfoyle, a Montana tavern has announced that the couple isn’t welcome to campaign there. According to The Bozeman Daily Chronicle:
‘But, Jeff Wilcox, a manager at the restaurant, said it won’t host the rally. He said the announcement was a miscommunication and that the restaurant has no interest in taking a side in the U.S. Senate race — or any other race.’

‘We definitely don’t want to take political sides. That’s never our intention.’
Wilcox said that he didn’t know the event had been booked at his establishment until it was announced on Tuesday. He apologized and said he was reaching out to set the record straight. Wilcox said:
‘That’s just not who we are. We just try to stay politically neutral. We’re a restaurant.’
This will not be Trump Jr.’s first trip to Montana. In 2017, he and his brother Eric Trump traveled to Montana to campaign for Republican Senate candidate Troy Downing (R).

It looks like Trump Jr. will be finding another place to campaign. Maybe the First Baptist Church would like to host them?
