Sanders and her family were attempting to dine at the Red Hen in Lexington, VA on Friday. When Sanders tweets from the @PressSec account, she is presumed to be speaking in her professional capacity as the press secretary, and her communications from this accounts are subject to government ethics rules.

Sanders said in a tweet on Saturday that she was asked to leave the Red Hen restaurant by its owner in Lexington, Virginia.

Sanders' father Mike Huckabee himself had inflamed Democrats only a few hours earlier by tweeting a photo of Latino MS13 gang members with a caption saying "Nancy Pelosi introduces her campaign committee members to take back the House, " implying the Democratic leadership supports criminals.

After reports emerged that Sanders was asked to leave the restaurant, she tweeted through her government account that Wilkinson's actions "say far more about her than about me". "I really do", Mr. Cummings said on CBS-TV's "Face the Nation".

"I always do my best to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and will continue to do so", Huckabee Sanders added.

Deproto, who has owned the restaurant for five years, still had no idea what had happened at the Virginia establishment by 11 a.m. Saturday, when a pair of Google messages, like the first raindrops arriving ahead of a storm, informed her people were boycotting her restaurant. She herself believes that Sanders works in the service of an "inhumane and unethical" administration defending the president's "cruelest" policies.

"We've got to get away from this and we've got to concentrate on what is important at this moment", Mr. Cummings said. "Seeks to coerce business by using her office to get public to pressure it", he wrote.

ConocoPhillips spokesman Daren Beaudo said each tanker can hold more than 25,000 gallons (20,817 imperial gallons) of oil. Sheriff Stewart Vander Stoep (VAN'-dur stoop) in neighboring Lyon County says the train derailed between 5 and 5:30 a.m.

"But again, I think President [Donald] Trump has created this".

"When I was a WH lawyer we trained all staff they couldn't use their WH titles or resources (like Twitter acct) for personal uses like making restaurant reservations or promoting businesses".

Wilkinson said she made the decision knowing there could be backlash that hurt her business.

"I'm not a huge fan of confrontation", Wilkinson told the newspaper.

As tempers flare over immigration and other policies, it's getting harder for top Trump administration officials to get a good meal anywhere near Washington D.C. She cited several reasons, including the concerns of several restaurant employees who were gay and knew Sanders had defended Trump's desire to bar transgender people from the military. "I said, "No. It's on the house", Wilkinson said.

A separate restaurant in Washington, DC, also named the Red Hen posted on social media that it has no affiliation with the restaurant in Virginia.
