The restaurant owner who put up a sign turning away Joe Biden supporters was forced to close its doors after the diner ran out of food following a boom in customers.
Angie Ugarte posted the sign on the window of DeBary Diner in central Florida after 13 US troops tragically died in Afghanistan.
“I’ve gotten so many people calling me from all over the world, from Europe, trying to purchase meals for veterans, which I still haven’t been able to organize,” she expressed.
“I think that the veterans will be fed for the rest of the year at the rate I’m getting donations,” she added.
The sign told Biden supporters: “If you voted for and continue to support and stand behind the worthless, inept and corrupt administration currently inhabiting the White House that is complicit in the death of our servicemen and women in Afghanistan, please take your business elsewhere.”
The diner was forced to close temporarily because of the overwhelming number of customers.
But that did not stop supporters from going to the diner, with one woman posing in front of the door holding a Trump 2020 banner. Others came from Monticello, Hunter’s Creek, and Daytona Beach.
Rod Phillips, a member of the Vietnam Veterans of America Florida State Council, visited the diner and shook the owner’s hand for her support of veterans.
Phillips told Ugarte: “We wanted to come over here and thank you personally. I respect the presidency of the United States, but this could have been handled much better, much better.
“Being a Vietnam veteran and combat-wounded, I don’t wish war on anybody. But there is a proper time and place to get out of there.
“One American is too many to be left behind enemy lines.”
