Donald J. Trump is the 45th President of the United States, and is possibly one of the most controversial and divisive figures of the 21st century so far. Everyone has an opinion on Trump, but do you wonder about the man underneath the public façade?
What does Trump enjoy eating, for instance? What a person eats can tell us a lot about them, so let’s have . a look at the President’s diet!
It’s perhaps no surprise that this most American of fast foods finds a place in Trump’s food favorites. After a press conference in 2016, Trump answered a series of questions in which he revealed that his favorite McDonald’s item is the Fish Delight. Those of you who are familiar with the menu will perhaps be puzzled, as there is no “Fish Delight” at McDonald’s.
Perhaps the President is being cryptic, such as with the famous “covfefe” tweet?
Another all-American fast food icon, Trump tweeted a photo of himself eating a banquet of KFC on his private jet. Trump ate a whole $20 Fill-Up bucket to himself, using a stainless steel knife, fork and spoon, much to the hilarity of The Washington Post, whose investigation revealed a lot about the meal, and Trump’s choice of reading matter.
3. A Well-Done Steak
The President loves his steaks well-done, much to the chagrin of chefs everywhere, who look upon well-done steaks as a culinary offence. Trump’s butler, Anthony Senecal, says that Trump’s steaks were so well done, they’d rock on the plate. There have been studies that show that over-cooked meat can lead to memory problems in later life and could contribute to prostate cancer, but a well-done steak is also a waste of good meat.
4. Taco Bowls
Trump thought he could win over the Hispanic vote on Cinco de Mayo during his election campaign by tweeting a photo of himself at Trump Tower eating a taco bowl.
5. Non-Alcoholic Drinks
Donald Trump is a teetotaler, and according to him it’s because his brother Fred Trump died at 41 from alcoholism. He says he’s never touched a drop of alcohol, even when he was in the New York real estate business. The Telegraph newspaper ran a story this year suggesting that maybe Trump had fibbed, as he was seen
drinking a reddish liquid during a meeting at the UN.
6. Burger King
Trump couldn’t possibly leave another American fast-food giant off his favorite foods list, could he! During his election campaign, Trump and his team celebrated by sending someone to the drive-in to pick up food for everyone. In an interview afterwards, Trump says he chose Burger King simply because it
Trump’s pizza-eating technique has come in for a lot of scrutiny. Apparently the President scrapes the toppings off and leaves the dough!
8. Meatloaf Sandwiches
Before Trump became President, he and Melania appeared on television with Martha Stewart to help make what he says is one of his favorite foods. He makes a passable-looking sandwich while he asks if he’s going to catch anything from Martha Stewart who had been handling the food…
9. Diet Coke
According to the New York Times, Trump drinks at least a dozen Diet Cokes each day. A nutritionist told Time magazine that the caffeine from all that soda is enough to cause him problems with a higher heart rate, migraines and insomnia.
10. No Breakfast
Like a fair few of us, Trump just isn’t a breakfast person. In an interview with Fox News, he revealed that breakfast is his least favorite meal of the day. When he does have breakfast, he likes to eat bacon and egg or cornflakes.
11. Fine Dining
The President enjoys his fine dining as well as fast-food, but often these dinners serve a political or social purpose rather than the sheer enjoyment of good food. Governor Chris Christie had dinner with Trump in one of his hotels. He says Trump brought the chef out, asked what he’d had for dinner the week before,
and then ordered the exact same thing again for both himself and Christie.
