New York Pizzeria Owner Remains In Business Despite Attacks by Anti-American Fanatics and Help from Donald Trump
A client of Long Island pizza shop Patio Pizza has promised to destroy the business by using her audience in one of the Facebook communities. Seeing the flag in support of Donald Trump, the woman said she would urge all her followers to boycott the pizza shop, but Long Island's non-toxic public helped the business owner.
The main trigger for the restless client was the waving Trump flag.
"She didn't like it. She said you just lost a customer and I'm an administrator of a social mom's local page and I'm going to post this on and I'm going to put you out of business," he says.

"I've been in business for 43 years and I've seen a lot," said Caligiuri. "And, I just took it in stride... I just ignored it, basically."
Later, US President Donald Trump expressed his support for Patio Pizza owner Caligiuri.
