More bad news for Donald Trump!

It's been reported that celebrity chef Jose Andres is following the lead of many other organizations and will cut ties with the GOP presidential candidate!

The culinary expert is backing out of a plan to open a restaurant in The Donald's new hotel, currently being constructed in Washington!

This decision is once again related to the billionaire's racist statements that he has been criticized for, and has yet to apologize. Andres himself is a Spanish immigrant who is known for popularizing the small dish tapas in the states.

The 45-year-old explained that over half of his team is Hispanic, as well as many of his restaurant guests. Andres declared that Trump's comments:

"Make it impossible for my company and I to move forward…As a proud Spanish immigrant and recently naturalized American citizen myself, I believe that every human being deserves respect, regardless of immigration status."

In a predictable response, Trump's camp issued a statement threatening legal action noting that Andres has a 10-year lease. The Trump Organization assured they would seek to recover any unpaid rent for the full agreed term.

It looks like Trump's legal team is going to be busier than ever!
