This Tuesday, Eric Trump said that he was spit on by an employee at a high-end cocktail bar while he was visiting Chicago.
The executive vice president of The Trump Organization took an apparent shot at the Dems while he discussed the incident with conservative media outlet Breitbart News.
“It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems,” Eric Trump said. “For a party that preaches tolerance, this once again demonstrates they have very little civility. 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.”
NBC5 Chicago also reported that the Secret Service took a woman into custody for questioning around 8:30 p.m. It is still unclear if she well be facing charges.
Anthony Guglielmi with the Chicago Police Department confirmed that officers were sent on the scene assisting with the federal authorities.
“CPD was on scene and assisting the United States Secret Service with a law enforcement matter. Any and all inquiries regarding a federal protectee must be directed to the Secret Service.” He posted on Twitter.
Sources from the scene claim that the Chicago Police Department and Secret Service officials handled the situation “extraordinarily professionally.”
The United States Secret Service decided not to comment about the event.
The incident reportedly took place in a Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood at the Aviary.
The bar’s co-owner, Nick Kokonas, made headlines earlier this year when he invited the college football national champion Clemson University Tigers to experience “what an actual celebration dinner should be” after President Donald Trump served the players fast food at the White House.
On Tuesday, the president’s 35-year-old son shared photos of the Trump Organization’s building along the Chicago River, making no mention of the incident on Twitter.
