President Donald Trump slandered a Virginia restaurant whose owner asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave.

The president claimed the Red Hen Restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, was “filthy” and “dirty” in a Monday morning tweet.

“The Red Hen Restaurant should focus more on cleaning its filthy canopies, doors and windows (badly needs a paint job) rather than refusing to serve a fine person like Sarah Huckabee Sanders,” Trump tweeted. “I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!”

The kitchen at Trump’s private Mar-A-Lago club was found to have 13 violations during an early 2017 inspection, including three “high priority” violations that could allow the presence of illness-causing bacteria on plates in the dining room.

DJT steakhouse at Trump International Hotel on the Las Vegas Strip was cited for 51 violations during a routine inspection in 2012.
The kitchens at Trump National Golf Club in Bedminster have been cited at least 17 times for health code violations between 2011 and 2016.
