“The food is GREAT at Sammy’s Mexican Grill,” President Donald Trump tweeted about a Tucson restaurant after its owners were attacked by rabid leftists because they attended a Trump rally.
The restaurant, owned by Jorge and Berry Rivas, became a target of unhinged leftists after Betty was seen attending the Trump rally in Phoenix, Arizona, on February 19.
As soon as word got out about her attendance, the eatery’s Facebook page was targeted by leftists.
Jorge told Fox Business that the Facebook attack did hurt business for a few days, but the president’s tweet put the spring back in their step.
“The food is GREAT at Sammy’s Mexican Grill in Phoenix, Arizona,” Trump tweeted. “Congratulations to Betty & Jorge Rivas on doing such a wonderful job. I will try hard to stop by the next time I am in Phoenix. Support Sammy’s!”

Jorge Rivas told “FOX & Friends” that they have “never denied … what we stand for and what we believe.”
“We know that it’s important for us to stay active, to say what we feel,” he continued. “I personally feel that to me, staying quiet and saying, oh I’m not going to express my opinion because they might attack me, that will go against what I believe, that will go against what America stands for.”
As soon as the president tweeted his support, though, the positive reviews flooded in.
“Wonderful restaurant! Great prices and greater food! The wonderful owners are the epitome of the American dream!” one review wrote.
