Backlash against pro-Trump Facebook post shutters Arizona restaurant


Owners of Cup It Up American Grill in Tucson, Arizona, were forced to shut down their establishment after a backlash against a pro-Trump statement posted on social media.

The owners, Christopher Smith and Jay Warren, posted a list of things they believe in, as well as a list of things they disapprove of. The list of things they approved of included: “OUR president, Always Standing for the National Anthem,” repealing Obamacare, and lawful immigration, among others. On the “disapproved” list were kneeling for the national anthem, Antifa, fake news, hate groups and hate crimes, and late night hosts getting political.

The post was removed but Arizona local ABC News reporter Jennifer Martinez tweeted the screen capture of it shown below.
