‘Trump is a fraud’: Furious anti-vaxxers are turned away from Trump Grill in NYC for failing to show proof of vaccination

  • Some supporters of former President Donald Trump were turned away from the Trump Grill in Trump Tower after they refused to show proof of vaccination
  • The supporters filmed a video of their ordeal, in which a security officer explained to them that they needed to show proof of vaccination to get in
  • ‘They’re under a mandate,’ the officer said of the restaurant. ‘They don’t want to get in trouble. In any case, right now, they aren’t going to seat you.’ 
  • ‘Trump is a fraud if he enforces this!’ one upset supporter can be heard saying
  • Another Trump supporter told the officer he made a reservation to eat at the grill
  • ‘That’s not a guarantee,’ the officer said. ‘That’s not a Constitutional right!’ 


A group of anti-vaxxers protested outside Trump Grill in New York City on Thursday after they were denied entrance to the restaurant.

A police officer was recorded trying to reason with the handful of protesters, who appeared to be in the restaurant’s lobby.

None of the individuals involved in the argument were wearing masks, or practicing social-distancing.

‘Trump is a fraud if he’s enforcing this!’ said one of the men in the video.

‘Prove to us. that we are a threat… Yeah, so 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,’ added another man.

The police officer answered that the restaurant didn’t have to prove anything , and that restaurant service was not a constitutional right.

‘You can make ten reservations, that doesn’t guarantee…It’s not a constitutional right,’ the officer said.

In New York City, people aged five and older are required to show proof they have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine for indoor dining, including restaurants, catering halls, hotel banquet rooms, bars, nightclubs, cafeterias, coffee shops, fast food restaurants and grocery stores with indoor dining.

New York shattered its COVID cases record for the third day running, recording an enormous 44,431 new cases on Christmas Eve.

The  numbers were shared by State Governor Kathy Hochul at a Friday morning press conference. She blamed the huge spike on the Omicron variant, estimated to be behind 92percent of new infections in the Empire State, and said: ‘This is a very, very contagious variant.’

But Hochul also struck a note of optimism, insisting: This is not Delta. This is Omicron, which thus far has demonstrated that it’s not as severe in its impact. This is not the same situation we had in March 2020 or even last winter’s surge. We’ve had more testing. We’ve had more opportunities.’

Hochul also revealed that COVID hospitalizations rose by five per cent in a day, and now sit at 4,744. But the governor highlighted that the figure is far fewer than the 7,000 who were hospitalized with the virus during Christmas 2020.

On Friday, Hochul also said that essential workers in New York now only have to isolate for five days after they test positive for COVID if they’re vaccinated and have suffered a so-called breakthrough infection. She says she is doing so to try and tackle staffing shortages blamed on current 10 day isolation rules.
