Donald Trump Refuses to Eat Any Japanese Food During Trip to Japan
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. It appears that he’s sticking to that belief in his latest visit to Japan.
Although Japan has been praised for their great cuisine with many Michelin-starred restaurants, President Trump will not eat anything but an all-American diet, according to The Independent.

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.
