Band member Liam Payne let the news slip in a brand new interview with Rollacoaster.
Payne stated that Trump had phoned their room asking if they'd be happy to meet either Ivanka or Tiffany - which daughter remains unclear - and their manager declined after refusing to wake them up.
He said: “Trump actually kicked us out of his hotel once. You wouldn’t believe it. It was about (meeting) his daughter. He phoned up our manager and we were asleep.
Trump then proceeded to throw the entire band out of the hotel, and even refused to let them leave through a secret exit.
Payne continued: “He said ‘well, wake them up’ and I was like ‘no’ and then he wouldn’t let us use the underground garage. Obviously, in New York, we can’t really go outside. New York is ruthless for us. So he was like, ‘OK, then I don’t want you in my hotel.’ So we had to leave.”
One Direction are currently on an extended hiatus with each member currently enjoying solo careers; Payne's first record will be released later this year.
Payne's fellow bandmate Niall Horan recently promised fans that the band would 'definitely' reunite one day in the future.
