Congressional interns say Uber driver refused to take them to Trump hotel because of 'MAGA' hats

Uber is looking into a troubling incident that involved one of its drivers and some Capitol Hill interns.

The interns said they hailed an Uber ride Tuesday night near George Washington University. Their destination was the Trump International Hotel.

However, they never made it there. The interns claim they were holding "Make America Great Again" hats and when the driver saw that, he refused to take them to the hotel.

Matthew Handy told FOX 5 that he and his fellow interns were not being obnoxious or pushy and all they were doing was holding the hats in their hands.

Handy said the driver then questioned the group.

"He's like, 'Is that a Make America Great Again hat?' We're like, 'Yes, sir. It is.' He said, 'Well, I can't do this ride,'" Handy described.

Handy said the interns want the driver fired and an apology from Uber.

"We also want a statement acknowledging that he's been terminated because not only did he break Uber's laws, he broke D.C. law," he said. "Because you cannot discriminate because of somebody's political beliefs."

The intern who ordered the Uber was not charged when the driver allegedly refused to take the group.

Uber released a statement saying, "We aim to provide a reliable service to everyone who uses Uber. We have reached out to both the rider and the driver, and continue to look into this."

It is unknown if the driver still has a job with Uber.
