GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. — Robinette’s Apple Haus & Winery’s Facebook page appears to not be shareable.

Several viewers have reached out to Fox 17 saying Facebook did not let them share Robinette's post on their personal pages because it did not meet community standards for spam.

Multiple Fox 17 staff weren’t able to share posts from Robinette’s when they tried to do so.

Ivanka Trump paid a surprise visit to Robinette’s on Monday before speaking in Alto.

Though some suspect the issue with Facebook was due to Trump’s visit, Robinette’s owners tell Fox 17 the issue has been happening for years now.

Robinette’s owner declined further comment.
