President Donald Trump is apparently not a Directioner.
“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.'”
The singer did not specify which of Trump’s daughters the band allegedly spurned, but the denial was enough for Trump to want them out of his accommodations.
“He wouldn’t let us use the underground garage,” Payne continued. “Obviously in New York we can’t really go outside. New York is ruthless for us. So he was like, ‘Okay, then I don’t want you in my hotel.’ So we had to leave.”
A request for comment from Payne was not immediately returned.
