President Trump is not known for his love of gourmet cuisine, so it should come as no surprise that he recently ordered a cheeseburger during a post-golf luncheon meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Choosing to forego diplomacy even while dining with a foreign head of state, the President insisted on well-done American beef, along with Heinz ketchup and mustard.
Trump does not possess a great deal of curiosity — intellectual, culinary, or otherwise — and his love of fast food is well-documented. An excerpt from Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J Trump tells of Trump saying during a 1990 trip to Japan that he would not eat "f***ing raw fish." Instead, he opted to stay in his comfort zone with a McDonald's burger.
I welcome President Donald J Trump most wholeheartedly on his visit to Japan! We're getting down to business right away over hamburgers for our working lunch.
I’d say a kobe burger would’ve been delicious & shown appreciation & respect for 🇯🇵 cuisine. Trump ate a burger w American beef. 😕— Restaunique (@Restaunique) November 7, 2017
Malatang. It’s the preferred take-out meal for angry netizens, and goes down well with a nationalistic rant. —HattyLiu
Pig Liver Soup. According to traditional beliefs it’s good for your eyes. And with him on Twitter and social media all the time, it will probably be good for him. —Liu Jue
Chongqing hotpot. I want to see his chopstick game with those slippery fish balls, and see if he can handle the spice. —David Dawson
