Donald Trump Refuses to Eat Any Japanese Food During Trip to Japan

November 6, 2017
Donald Trump once said during a 1990 trip to Japan that he would not eat “f***ing raw fish” and opted for a McDonald’s hamburger.

During a casual lunch with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, no Japanese dishes were found at his table. Instead, Trump opted for a hamburger sourced from American beef from Japanese restaurant chain Munch’s Burger Shack — with a well done patty of course.

“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,” the Japanese prime minister’s office wrote on Facebook.

I think it’s safe to say that Trump won’t be stopping by the famous Sukiyabashi Jiro anytime soon like President Obama did in 2014.
