A campaign fund affiliated with the Colorado Democratic Party on Monday accused President Trump of running “migrant concentration camps” after he slammed a restaurant that kicked out White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders.

The tweet from the House Majority Project said: “‘I’m running my own migrant concentration camps that are torturous, criminal and inhumane—but oh look, a business has bad paint’. - Trump.”

The post came in response to Mr. Trump’s tweet earlier Monday mocking the exterior of the Red Hen restaurant, saying it ‘“badly needs a paint job.”

The restaurant’s owner asked Ms. Sanders to leave Friday, citing disagreements with the Trump administration.

The House Majority Project is a “an initiative of the Colorado Democratic Party” that works toward “protecting and expanding” the Democratic majority in the state legislature, according to the website.

“All contributions to the House Majority Project are aggregated with contributions to the Democratic Senate Campaign Fund and the Colorado Democratic Party,” the website said.

The Colorado Democratic Party declined a request for comment.

Jonathan Lockwood, political consultant and former Colorado state House Republican press secretary, called on House Democrats to apologize, saying, “Their hatred for Trump and his supporters is getting dangerous.”

“The Colorado House Democrats are desecrating the Holocaust,” Mr. Lockwood said. “They are absolutely out of line and should apologize to the Jewish community, to Colorado voters, and to the immigrant community for stoking division and fear.”
