During his recent visit with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe, President Trump did something that Fox News host Jesse Watters called “one of the most Trump things ever.”
Rather than sampling some of the Japanese cuisine – tempura, sushi, or kaiseki – Trump opted to go with a well-done, American-style cheeseburger.
“We sincerely welcome President Trump on his visit to Japan!” Abe wrote on Twitter. “We’re getting down to business right away over hamburgers.”

Simply, a thing of beauty.
Mashable reports that Trump’s burgers were brought in by Munch’s Burger Shack, and that “all of Munch’s burgers are made from U.S. Angus beef.”
Watters was quick to point out another notable piece to this image. Two items every American has in their refrigerator as we speak – bottles of ketchup and mustard from Heinz, an American company headquartered in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
That’s right, Trump traveled to Japan and had the Japanese Prime Minister eating an all-around all-American lunch.
Naturally, liberals went a little nutty over the President having American-made food on his trip to Japan.
The Huffington Post pointed out that President Obama dined at a sushi restaurant with Abe during his visit, then lamented “we miss you, Barry.”
Others on social media were simply dismayed that an American would travel to Japan and seek out an actual American food item.
Japan has easily some of the best cuisine in the world. So what did Trump eat? A burger. You can’t make this stuff up!

When Obama ate with Abe, he had sushi.
When Trump ate with Abe, he had a hamburger.
Very telling of their approaches to diplomacy. https://t.co/LwTo1nndAA

Actually, it’s the leftist response to a man who would prefer to have an American-made burger over sushi that is most telling. They have no idea why a move like this, simple as it may be, is something that endears President Trump to the average, everyday citizen here in the United States.
