After appearing in court on Tuesday in Miami, Florida on suspicion of illegally withholding classified documents, former President Donald Trump stopped by a Cuban eatery in Little Havana. The crowd there appeared to be ecstatic with Trump’s attendance. Then, adding to their joy, he said, “Food for everyone,” raising hopes that he would pay for the bills.

Despite this, a Miami New Times report claims that Trump fled without paying the bill. However, Donald Trump’s team is refuting claims that he skipped paying for his supporters’ tabs. They say that because his visit to the restaurant was so brief, no one placed an order.

A spokesperson for Donald Trump clarified to the New York Post, “President Trump was very enthused and very appreciative to the family at Versailles Restaurant for welcoming him this week. At the end of President Trump’s visit, he offered to buy food for the group of attendees inside the restaurant, but when President Trump left, the attendees followed him outside and did not place orders themselves.”

“Campaign advance team members paid for the to-go meals purchased, and there were no unpaid tabs. President Trump looks forward to returning soon,” the spokesperson added.
