Sarah Sanders: 'Truly mind-boggling' how people can choose socialism with Trump's economy

Sarah Sanders: 'Truly mind-boggling' how people can choose socialism with Trump's economy White House press secretary Sarah Sanders expressed disbelief on Saturday at the fact that Democrats pushed "socialism" while living under President Donald Trump's successful economy and while watching that system "crumble before their very eyes."

An owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, who last June asked White House press secretary Sarah Sanders to leave , said her business is doing “ better than good ” after weathering a barrage of criticism including from President Donald Trump.

WASHINGTON — Sarah Huckabee Sanders , the White House press secretary, said she was asked to leave a Virginia restaurant Friday night because of her work in the Trump administration “I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”

An owner of the Red Hen restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, who last June asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders to leave, said her business is doing “better than good” after weathering a barrage of criticism including from President Donald Trump.

“After nearly a year, I’m happy to say that business is still good. Better than good, actually,” co-owner Stephanie Wilkinson wrote in an op-ed published Tuesday in the Washington Post. “Besides the boost to our area charities, our town’s hospitality and sales revenue have gone up, too.”

Donations to Sanders cut in half after Biden entry, begs donors to ‘dig a little deeper’

Donations to Sanders cut in half after Biden entry, begs donors to ‘dig a little deeper’ Sen. Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign has seen a huge drop in donations since former Vice President Joe Biden entered the race, and he’s begging donors to “dig a little deeper.” In a long email promising to undo President Trump’s actions if elected, the Sanders Campaign Manager Faiz Shakir revealed that the average donation to the Vermont senator’s operation has been cut in half. “I’m about to ask you to make a contribution, and I hope that it is clear why. But first, I want to be up front with you that our average contribution — which used to be $27 — has been almost half that in the last couple weeks.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders was told to leave a Lexington, Virginia, restaurant Friday night, she said on Twitter Saturday morning. Her actions say far more about her than about me. I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do

Wilkinson recounted the incident, which she wrote came about at the height of press scrutiny on the Trump administration’s “heinous practice” of separating migrant children from their parents, a “horror” felt at her restaurant.

“I took Ms. Sanders aside and politely suggested she leave. She agreed, equally politely,” Wilinskon wrote. “She may or may not have expected this day would come, but she never showed any sign of outrage, or even much surprise. We’d drawn a line; she’d accepted it.”

Wilkinson’s refusal to serve Sanders, which led to the press secretary and her family leaving the restaurant, drew tremendous backlash from conservatives. Some alleged that liberals do not face the same level of public scrutiny in everyday life for their political beliefs.

Sarah Huckabee Sanders had just walked in and sat down, the chef informed her. “He said the staff is a little concerned. When she walked into the restaurant , Wilkinson saw that there had been no mistake. The Red Hen is no bigger than some apartments, and the group table was impossible to

The owner of the Virginia restaurant who asked White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to leave her establishment on Friday night said she did not regret her decision. “I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so.”

In her opinion piece, Wilkinson mentioned that the president mocked her restaurant on Twitter.

“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 days after the incident. “I always had a rule, if a restaurant is dirty on the outside, it is dirty on the inside!”

Wilkinson said she has not stopped receiving hate mail, including notebook pages smeared with feces. She said she was called a racist, hypocrite and that her business “was going down the drain.”

“Yet, as I kept opening the letters, I saw a pattern,” she wrote. “For every hateful message, there was one of gratitude.”

The restaurant owner said the dining room was full after reopening 10 days after the Sanders incident and that customers came who had never before been to the Shenandoah Valley. In addition, supporters donated to the Red Hen’s local food pantry, shelter for domestic violence and first responders.

Wilkinson concluded “resistance is not futile, for you or your business.”

“Our haters may have believed that there were more of ‘them’ than of ‘us,’” she wrote, “But it turns out we have more than enough to keep us cooking.”

Sanders did not immediately respond to a request for comment from Newsweek on Tuesday.
