Democratic Rep. Elijah Cummings said Sunday the Virginia restaurant owner who asked White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders to exit earlier this week needs to have served her instead.

"I feel, where the restaurant incident, I think the restaurant owner need to have served her," said Cummings, the ranking member around the House Oversight Committee. "I really do. But, this tone is horrible. Since, There’s no doubt that President [Donald] Trump has generated this."

On Saturday, Sanders said she was told on Friday night with the who owns The Red Hen, dinning in Lexington, Virginia, "to go out of since i work for @POTUS so i politely left."

"Her actions say much more about her than about me," Sanders tweeted. "I do my favorite to treat people, including those I disagree with, respectfully and may continue to do so."

Stephanie Wilkinson, that is a co-owner with the restaurant, explained to The Washington Post on Saturday which she believed Sanders worked for an “inhumane and unethical” administration.

“I’m not much of a huge fan of confrontation,” Wilkinson told the Post. “I have a very business, and I want the business enterprise to thrive. This sounds like when inside our democracy when folks must carry out uncomfortable actions and decisions to uphold their morals.”

During his appearance Sunday on CBS’ "Face the country," Cummings placed at fault around the president while he was mentioned "a dark tone or deficiency of civility at the moment."

"Since he’s become president – and before – he’s basically given people license expressing things which are ugly as well as those things then change into actions, as we can now see," the Maryland Democrat said. "But we’ve got to move away from this, and we will need to concentrate on what is crucial at this time."
