Our long national nightmare is over!
Donald Trump‘s organization is no longer em-broiled (hahaha!) in a legal battle with chef José Andrés.
The famed food star pulled a restaurant from one of Trump’s hotels prior to its opening and after Trump made comments about Mexican rapists coming into America. Trump sued him for $10 million. Andrés countersued back. The battle raged on, though the chef did tweet that he wished it wouldn’t. In fact, he just wanted to find a way to funnel all the money from the suits into an NGO for vets.
The good news is the suits are finished. The bad news is we don’t know anything about the terms of the settlement. Per The Washington Post, Donald Trump Jr., who is now overseeing the Trump Organization, said this in a joint statement with Andrés’s ThinkFoodGroup:
I am glad that we are able to put this matter behind us and move forward as friends. Since opening in September 2016, Trump International Hotel, Washington, D.C. has been an incredible success and our entire team has great respect for the accomplishments of both José and TFG. Without question, this is a “win-win” for both of our companies.
