Quite frankly, Donald Trump isn’t a well-liked man. He never has been — whether it was a result of the multiple crimes and transgressions he’s committed as the president of this nation, or his tendency to screw the eyeballs out of millions as a real-estate mogul, or his bad behavior, incessant racism, and constant drug-use during his time on The Apprentice, no one has ever particularly liked the guy.
Hell, even one of the United Kingdom’s most famous celebrity chefs, who’s known around the world for his harsh, crass attitude, once gave ole Donald a big “no, thanks” when he was asked to cater a banquet for Trump and his crew at the Blenheim Palace when Trump visited the UK back in 2018.
Gordon Ramsay, who hails from Johnstone, Renfrewshire and was raised Stratford-upon-Avon, England, said he responded with “Thank you, but no thank you” because he prefers to stay out of politics. However, it seems Gordon’s motives behind his refusal were a lot less political and had a whole lot more to do with, perhaps, a dislike for America’s biggest embarrassment, as the world-renowned chef hasn’t seemed to have any issue with cooking for other notable political figures over the years.
In addition to the numerous celebrities and public figures that have enjoyed the personal experience of Ramsay’s cuisine over the years, the chef has also cooked for the likes of Vladimir Putin back in 2010, ultimately donating his pay from the event to charity, and even hosted Nelson Mandela as the guest of honor at the 2009 grand-opening of his Cape Town restaurant.

But folks, that’s not even the best part. In addition to turning down Donald’s request to cater his event, Gordon once revealed that he’d be more than happy to serve Trump’s 2016 Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.
When asked by Bon Appétit magazine in 2015, just shortly after Clinton has announced her bid for the presidency, what he would cook for the Democratic hopeful given the opportunity, Gordon wasn’t short with his answer.
“I would say something authentic, rich, and a sauce that had been doused with lots of red wine — like a braised short rib, because she’s of that era — of that age — that she understands fine food.”
Honestly, Donald, it’s really just you.
