In response to last night’s events where Jose Andres was asked to leave a private party where Ivanka was also in attendance, political commentator and outspoken Trump critic Ana Navarro fired back on Twitter.
Reportedly, @chefjoseandres was kicked out of @CafeMilanoDC b/c @IvankaTrump felt uncomfortable. And Trump-fans have the gall to call other people “snowflakes”? If u can’t take the heat in Jose’s kitchen, do us all a favor, stay w/i confines of Trump property safe-zones. ❄️ https://t.co/gpUpzIjlKH

Ivanka seems to have had celebrity chef and outspoken Trump critic Jose Andres thrown out of the after party for the annual Alfalfa Club dinner in D.C. last night. Andres, who has worked tirelessly on the ground in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria to provide thousands of meals to people without power or water, posted on Twitter right after the incident.
Jorge Guajardo, the Mexican ambassador to China, was there as well and tweeted in support of Andres. He reported the detail that Andres was asked to leave because he made Ivanka uncomfortable.
Jose Andres has been a vocal anti Trump activist. In addition to his work in Puerto Rico, he has advocated on behalf of immigrants and spoken out against Trump’s xenophobic and anti-immigrant statements and policies.
Andres was also in a legal dispute with the Trump Organization over a restaurant deal in one of Trump’s hotels. Andres was in talks to set up a restaurant at one of the hotels when he pulled out in response to Trump’s racist remarks about Mexicans. Litigation dragged on for two years before the Trump Organization finally settled.
