Trump booted One Direction from his hotel for not meeting with his daughter

They’ve got a whole lot of history.

President Trump’s ruthlessness toward people he doesn’t like or who don’t do what he wants has been well documented, and it apparently extends to kicking people out of his hotel who refuse his demands in the middle of the night.

In an interview with Rollacoaster (via NME), Liam Payne revealed that One Direction was once on the receiving end of Trump’s wrath while staying at his hotel in New York City.

“Trump actually kicked us out of his hotel once,” Payne said. “You wouldn’t believe it. It was about [meeting] his daughter. He phoned up our manager and we were asleep. He said ‘well, wake them up’ and I was like ‘no’ and then he wouldn’t let us use the underground garage.”

Payne doesn’t specify which daughter Trump wanted One Direction to meet, but Tiffany is much closer in age to the band members than Ivanka.

He continued: “Obviously in New York we can’t really go outside. New York is ruthless for us. So he was like, ‘OK, then I don’t want you in my hotel.’ So we had to leave.”

It’s unclear how long ago the incident occurred, but it’s something Trump never appeared to complain about on Twitter; his lone tweet on “one direction” has nothing to do with the band.
