In a Wednesday Facebook post ahead of Trump's rally in the city, The Scullery restaurant shared a photo of a sign placed in the window announcing that "100% of today's sales will be donated to American Immigration Council in order to help with the immigration crisis at our southern border and to celebrate our diverse community."

Matthew Scully, the restaurant's owner, told local news outlet WITN that he wanted to do something positive for the community that brings people together instead of tearing them apart.

Wednesday night, after The Scullery announced the decision to donate its daily profits, supporters at Trump's rally chanted “send her back” after the president launched into a diatribe against Omar.

He accused the first-term lawmaker and Somali refugee of demeaning U.S. service members and minimizing the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.
