Trump is suing George Washington University professor’s businesses for $10 million

Celebrity chef Jose Andrés is certainly on the short list of commencement speakers who have been sued by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

An even shorter list if you count professors – Andrés is also on the adjunct faculty at George Washington University, according to The GW Hatchet.

A Trump company building a hotel at D.C.’s Old Post Office has filed a $10 million suit, as Trump himself promised, against Andrés’s ThinkFoodGroup and its affiliate Topo Atrio LLC for backing out of a restaurant deal in the wake of Trump’s inflammatory comments on Mexican immigrants, Washington Business Journal reported.

The suit accuses the Spanish-born Andrés of pretending he didn’t know Trump’s bombastic personality:

“Mr. Andrés’ offense [at Trump’s remarks] is curious in light of the fact that Mr. Trump’s publicly shared views on immigration have remained consistent for many years, and Mr. Trump’s willingness to frankly share his opinions is widely known,” the suit stated. …

Trump’s lawsuit notes that “it is indisputably harmful to open a luxury hotel without its planned restaurant, much less one undergoing construction as will now be required.”
