Star Chef Jose Andres Cancels Restaurant for Trump Hotel

Celebrity chef Jose Andres is backing out of a plan to open a flagship restaurant in Donald Trump's new hotel under construction in Washington. Andres issued a statement Wednesday citing Trump's statements "disparaging immigrants" in his decision to cancel plans for an eatery at the Trump International Hotel. Real estate mogul and Republican presidential candidate Trump said in a campaign speech June 16 that some Mexican immigrants bring drugs and crime to the U.S., and some are rapists. Andres says Trump's statements "make it impossible for my company and I to move forward."
