Former President Donald Trump’s restaurant in New York City turned away a group of anti-vaxxers when they refused to show proof that they had gotten their COVID-19 jabs.
Video footage that has since gone viral shows the group of activists trying to gain entry into Trump Grill, which is located within Trump Tower on Fifth Avenue, according to The U.K. Sun.
“We came to Trump Tower because we thought Donald Trump was supposed to be for America, he said he’s against vaccine mandates,” one of the men who was turned away said. “I thought as a man, who’s for America, he would stand up, pay a $1,000 fine, and let us eat freely – you know the man’s a billionaire, he can afford a $1,000 fine.”
“It would make him look good. But instead, he’s had his people not serve us and it just exposed him as a fraud,” he added. “All talk but no action.”

New York City currently has a mandate in place stating that anyone who is over the age of five must show proof of getting the COVID-19 jabs in order to gain entry to indoor restaurants, gyms, and performance venues. The group trying to gain entry to Trump’s restaurant, however, were not having any of these rules.
“Prove to us that we are a threat,” one protester can be seen saying to a police officer who was trying to explain the mandate. “The burden of proof is on them because they are assuming that we are a threat because we don’t have a vaccine. Well, prove to me that we are a threat.”
The cop fired back by saying that Trump Grille did not need to prove anything to the group.
“You can make 10 reservations, that doesn’t guarantee [anything.] It’s not a constitutional right,” the officer said of the restaurant.
This comes days after former President Trump was booed by a crowd after revealing that he had gotten his booster shot during a live conversation with the ex-Fox News host Bill O’Reilly.
“Don’t! Don’t! Don’t! Don’t! Don’t!” Trump exclaimed as he was booed.
Trump has long been against any mandates that force people to get the COVID-19 shots without their consent. However, he has also taken credit for the fast rollout of the COVID-19 jabs, which were developed and first distributed while he was still in office.
Red Voice Media would like to make a point of clarification on why we do not refer to any shot related to COVID-19 as a "vaccine." According to the CDC, the definition of a vaccine necessitates that said vaccine have a lasting effect of at least one year in preventing the contraction of the virus or disease it's intended to fight. Because all of the COVID-19 shots thus far available have barely offered six months of protection, and even then not absolute, Red Voice Media has made the decision hereafter to no longer refer to the Pfizer, Moderna, or Johnson & Johnson substances as vaccinations.
