Alexander was verbally abused inside the restaurant Trump stopped at after he pleaded not guilty in the Mar-a-Lago classified documents case at the Miami federal courthouse. The Sky News reporter posted a video on Twitter, showing the former President’s supporters confronting her.

“Get out you stupid b***h” a man shouted. She was escorted outside and booed as a ‘traitor’. She was also told to “Shut up” and “Get the f*** out of here.”

Donald Trump pleaded not guilty at his arraignment on Tuesday. He has been indicted on 37 charge on his alleged mishandling of classified national security documents after leaving the White House in 2021.

Alexander addressed the incident on Twitter.

“I was just thrown out of the Versailles bakery in Miami for asking President Trump if he was ready to go to jail. A man screamed ‘stupid bitch’ in my face while others said I was a ‘traitor’,” she tweeted.

“The moment a man screamed ‘stupid bitch’ in my face after I publicly questioned Donald Trump. Thanks to all those asking, I got out perfectly safely. I did not shout ‘Trump for prison’. I asked: ‘President Trump are you ready for jail?’, a perfectly legitimate question.”
