Eric Trump says he was spat on by an employee at the Aviary, an upscale cocktail bar in Chicago, on Tuesday night. The employee was taken into Secret Service custody but was later released.
“It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems,” Trump told Breitbart News. “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.”
Breitbart reported that the female employee had approached Eric as he entered the bar in a group. She inaudibly muttered something that sounded like it was anti-Trump before spitting at the president’s son.
Anthony Guglielmi, a spokesman for Chicago Police Department, tweeted that the city’s officers were on the scene assisting the Secret Service.
