The Secret Service will provide temporary protection to Sarah Huckabee Sanders starting Wednesday, according to NBC News and CNN, reports coming days after the White House press secretary was asked to leave a restaurant in Virginia because of her job. 

The Secret Service would not comment on the report, telling CNN: "For operational security purposes the Secret Service does not comment on its protective operations."

Protection for a press secretary is unusual considering the position has traditionally been a low-threat job, and the Secret Service typically protects the president, vice president, their families, former presidents, foreign heads of states, and major presidential candidates, and spouses.

But an incident involving Sanders made national news when the owner of Red Hen, a restaurant in Lexington, Virginia, asked her to leave because of differences with her politics.

Stephanie Wilkinson, the chef-owner of The Red Hen, said politics were especially explosive in her small town which voted against Trump in a county that did not.

Given her own moral position the spokeswoman serves in an "inhumane and unethical" administration, Wilkinson told the Post, she could not accept a defender of the president's "cruelest policies." 

The owner said many of her employees were gay and Sanders had defended Trump's wish to bar transgender people from the armed forces. And then, she said, she was stunned by the spokeswoman's defense of Trump policies leading to migrant children being taken from their parents' care.

Sanders said she was asked to leave because "she worked for President Trump."

"We are allowed to disagree but we should be able to do so freely and without fear of harm, and this goes for all people regardless of politics," she added. 

She continued: "Healthy debate on ideas and political philosophy is important, but the calls for harassment and push for any Trump supporter to avoid the public is unacceptable."
