The incident occurred last night around 8:30 at The Aviary.
"It was purely a disgusting act by somebody who clearly has emotional problems," the 35-year-old told Breitbart News. "For a party that preaches tolerance, this once again demonstrates they have very little civility."
The Chicago Sun-Times' Sam Kelly and Nader Issa report:
Two restaurant employees told the Sun-Times an employee of The Aviary spit on Eric Trump but did not see the incident themselves.
Several people in the bar reported seeing an influx of Secret Service at the restaurant and one of the Trump sons inside. They told the Sun-Times they saw an arrest happen and heard another employee say, "Oh my god, she spit on him."
Eric Trump declined to press charges against the employee, Breitbart News reported.
Eric Trump later tweeted photos of Trump International Hotel and Tower, saying, "Always love visiting @TrumpChicago! It is one of the most beautiful buildings in the world!"
The Aviary's owners have placed the employee on leave after what they described as an "unfortunate incident."
