Maine Brewery Cancels Trump Event: We Were Misled

The Bangor Daily News reports:

A veteran-owned Freeport brewery canceled a Wednesday campaign event for President Donald Trump that was to be headlined by the president’s daughter-in-law after an owner said he was misled by the campaign about the scope of the event.

Brad and Nancy Nadeau, the owners of Stars and Stripes Brewing, reached out to the Bangor Daily News on Tuesday after an article posted on Monday night cited a Trump campaign news release saying the brewery as the first stop of a “Women For Trump” bus tour on Wednesday evening.

The Nadeaus said on Tuesday they had initially been told that some members of the campaign were going to come in for a beer while getting pizza from an adjacent restaurant. Brad Nadeau said he was told late Monday that Lara Trump, the Republican president’s daughter-in-law, would be there.

The owners say they are not anti-Trump or “anti-anything,” they just don’t want their business used for political purposes.
