Before the elections campaign, Spanish Chef José Andrés, owner of Jaleo Restaurant and one of the most acclaimed chefs in Washington D.C, was about to close a deal with the Trump group to open a restaurant in one of the magnate luxury hotels in D.C. But when Trump started to deliver his racist and anti-immigration statements, he decided to quit the deal. 

Andrés, co-owner of The Think Food Group, cited Trump’s derogatory comments on the campaign trail about illegal immigrants, saying they made it impossible for him to run a successful eatery. Trump sued, seeking $10 million in damages. Now the feud has ended in tribunals. 

A D.C. Superior Court judge ordered Wednesday that President-elect Donald Trump sit for a deposition in his legal dispute with chef José Andrés during the first week of January, just ahead of his Jan. 20 swearing-in, reports The Washington Post.

Trump and Andrés’s legal battle has stretched far beyond what both parties had hoped, with the two men reportedly locked into a lawsuit that neither particularly wanted but could not abandon without the unacceptable bruising of one or both egos, reports Vanity Fair.  Andrés, a pro-immigration advocate who has cooked at the White House and campaigned for Hillary Clinton, has repeatedly railed against Trump over the past year, but recently offered to end the feud by offering to drop the lawsuit and donate money to a veterans’ charity.
