Miami restaurateur Nusret Gokce, commonly referred to as "Salt Bae", is causing a ruckus online after serving the president's oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., a meal at his steakhouse in New York.
Trump posted a video of Gokce preparing a steak for Trump's table on Instagram Thursday night.
Gokce sparked protests in Miami last month after a video of him hosting Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his wife went viral on social media.
Local officials, including Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Miami Mayor Francis Suarez, criticized Gocke.
Many online commenters on Trump's Instagram page noted that Gokce had hosted Maduro at one of his restaurants.
The Trump administration has been extremely critical of the Maduro regime.
