18. Expected No Tip
Although the three conservatives turned out to be friendly and polite with the waitress she didn’t set her hopes up for a big tip. She knew that those people were supporters of Trump and given his views, a tip from that table was a far-fetched dream.
17. Men Left

13. The Note
One of the men wrote on the check a note for the waitress. “We may come from different cultures and may disagree on certain issues, but if everyone would share their smile and kindness like your beautiful smile, our country will come together as one people. Not race. Not gender. Just American. God Bless!”

10. A Rare Trump Supporter
