“It’s a pandemic, do our best… It’s totally unnecessary.

The worker told NBC he believed the waiter’s nose was broken.

Security at City Center DC, the development housing the restaurant, and police would handle the case, but restaurant staff said neither had “done anything.”

It’s unclear who the attacker is, but the employee told NBC that no “high-profile” Trump was involved.

Neither Fig & Olive nor the Metropolitan Police Department immediately returned DailyMail.com’s request for comment.

A City Center DC development security official declined to comment on the situation as they said they “weren’t there at the time.”

The incident allegedly took place after Trump hosted a private White House funeral service for Robert who died last week a day after the president flew to New York to be at his bedside.

Robert’s widow Ann Marie Pallan Trump, 55 – whom he married in March – watched in tears and was joined by Donald and Robert’s sister Elizabeth Trump Grau, 78, and husband James Grau, 84-year-old former film producer and former director of events at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach.

Elizabeth fought back tears as the bagpipes played Lord Lovat’s Lament in the background – a tribute to the family’s roots as their late mother Mary Anne MacLeod was from Scotland.

They were joined by the President’s children who were all pictured on the steps of the White House to pay tribute to their uncle.

Barron Trump dominated siblings Donald Trump Jr. and girlfriend Kimberly Guilfoyle, Ivanka Trump and husband Jared Kushner, Eric Trump and his wife Lara and Tiffany Trump.

Also in attendance were Robert’s stepchildren, Genna Nixon, 31, and TJ Pallan, 25, and their respective partners Flynn Nixon and Laura Taylor.

Genna and TJ were seen comforting their distraught mother and Robert’s widow, Ann Marie, at the bottom of the steps.

David William Desmond, 59, the eldest nephew of Robert and the only child of Maryanne Trump Barry, from his first marriage to David Desmond, was also pictured on the steps.

Several mourners hugged and comforted each other as the black casket was placed inside the hearse and driven away.

Around 200 people were invited to the private ceremony which was reportedly personally paid for by the president, but only a few dozen were seen on the steps.

This is the first time that a deceased person has been held at the seat of the United States government since President John F. Kennedy was in office and his funeral procession began from there after his assassination in 1963.

The service made Trump’s brother one of the few private citizens to have had their White House funeral service in its history.

Robert died in hospital on Saturday at the age of 71 after “suffering from brain bleeding from a recent fall”.
