According to the DailyMail, President Trump got banned from certain restaurants, by none other than Robert De Niro, the famous Hollywood star. The actor opened up in a recent interview about his Hollywood career and his involvement in the Nobu restaurant and hotel chain.

Nobu started out as a restaurant brand in 1994, when De Niro, Nobu Matsuhisa and Meir Teper first collaborated. The hotel branch was only added 15 years later but is by now famous for its luxury, attention to detail and, of course, the amazing food it offers. In fact, three hotels were just added to the branch, in various locations – in Ibiza, Marbella and Shoreditch.

De Niro compared his work relationship with Nobu to a marriage. They had arguments and disagreements over the years, but they are always able to move past them:

“Sometimes things don’t work out like that and people have disagreements and we have had disagreements in the past but you’re always thinking of the big picture.”

The whole chain has a sense of family to it, at least how the founders would like to manage it. Nobu said that they like to give opportunities for good employees to grow and change. However, De Niro also admitted he has a very different role in the chain than Nobu or Meir. They are all part of the decision-making process, but Nobu is very active in the kitchen, too, unlike De Niro.

“Bobby’s a great actor but not a great chef! I’m gonna make the movie, I can do it all. I beat him.”

Despite the success of the chain and the number of famous people who have visited the restaurants before, De Niro made it clear that one person is not welcome in any of the establishments – President Trump. He clearly stated that if Trump appeared in any restaurant where he was eating, De Niro would walk out, no questions asked. However, Chef Nobu could not let this moment pass without making a joke:

“It’s my dream for Trump to sit next to Bob. To make them Sushi!”

This ban is valid in Hungary, too, as there is a Nobu restaurant on Elizabeth Square. So, if the President ever comes to visit, he will have to look for other options.

During the interview, the actor was asked about his retirement plans, too – spending 55 years acting and 25 years in the hospitality business is a long time, after all, yet he shows no signs of stopping:

“What am I gonna do? Take up golf!? I actually tried golf and I liked it but I enjoy doing what I’m doing. As long as we enjoy that. How much can I rest?”

  1. The “USEFUL IDIOTS” allegedly coined by Vladimir Lenin (a strictly useful idiot himself for following Marx’s theories, who after seeing Friedrich Engel’s “Condition of the Working Class”) published in 1884. Then these two German philosophers published “The Communist Manifesto” in 1848. This manifesto established the platform for more than a century for enormous quantity of “useful idiots” worldwide, beginning with the creation of The Soviet Union, consisting of many smaller countries. Stalin, who followed Lenin and his Politburo, placed leaders in (natives of each of these countries) as heads of government, who were prepared (indoctrinated) in Moscow during several years, immediately after the Second World War. This resulted in the indoctrination (brainwashing) of the peoples in these “occupied” or absorbed countries into the “Soviet Union”.
    No brain is needed to see how the “Useful idiots” began to multiply, until today, where it is now sticking up its ugly and ignorant head even in the United States. These “idiots” do not know nor read history, obviously cannot understand the consequences of a Socialist or quasi Communist system, when even China which still calls itself communist, while applying capitalist system to the leaders and their cabals, leaving the peasants and lower echelon workers follow the “communist” system for which the government is very proud and loudly proclaim the Republic of China is definitely Communist. The obvious double standard they apply, produces thousands of multi-millionaires, a good number of billionaires, who are no longer “useful idiots”, while he military, the workers and peasants remain the “useful idiots”. In this manner, they are able to become the number 1 economy and military might, which was unthinkable during Mao Zedong’s rein, as he was a very useful idiot to win the revolution and pass on this formidable nation to its current status. (Including being the manufacturer of the world for decades by allowing innocent (naïve) investors, technologically advanced industries to allow the thievery of product designs, falsely reproduced brand names and their methods of production. Invited thousands of Western manufacturers and bankers to invest, innocently transfer know-how and be exploited by the ruling class who then proceeded to educate themselves in all aspects, business secrets, marketing, buying out advanced companies, investing in mines, in businesses and governments all over the globe and by helping newly emerging small nations in Africa, Europe and even in a major competitor as the U.S.A., from where they mined, i.e. inviting the local manufacturers to transfer their production to a low cost labor country as opposed to the manufacturing U.S. states one after another, i.e. Ohio, Pennsylvania, Illinois and many more, which even included steel, aluminum, chemicals, automobiles and most of high tech industries…BTW, the only countries that can justly utilize “socialism” are the small, one or two religious and ethnic populace, are those of Finland, Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Lichtenstein, etc. gratify their citizens. (Even some of these now have second thoughts about becoming “multi-cultural” nations.
    We that are the U.S.A. have become also USEFUL IDIOTS for a communist system. Shame on us and the Europeans, both peoples always considered themselves as “intelligent”, “superior”, “forward thinking” leaders in everything in the world! LOL! SHAME ON US ALL!
