Donald Trump May Go to Japan, But He Does Not Mess With Sushi

He sticks to what he knows.

If you are the kind of person who thinks that a trip to Japan would be a perfect opportunity to experience the world's best sushi, well, Donald Trump is not like you.

As part of his Asia trip, the president was in Japan over the weekend, but he appears not to have eaten sushi during the visit. Instead, he stuck mainly to the typical all-American diet he is known for. According to Bloomberg, on Sunday the president dined with Japanese prime minister Shinzo Abe, and their wives, at teppanyaki chain at Ginza Ukai Tei. The group was served grilled scallops, steak, and chocolate sundaes... and by Monday morning following the news of the high-profile visit, stock price for the eatery's parent company rose more than seven percent. (WINNING.)

As well, the president's Japan trip included golf and lunch at Kasumigaseki Country Club. At the club, he ate much as he might have during a visit to one of his own properties in the U.S.: a burger, reportedly brought to him from a popular chain called Minato’s Burger Shack. Mashable pointed out that the restaurant's burgers are all made from American beef. (So much WINNING!)

This would hardly be the first time the president has raised some eyebrows for his eating choices. Who could forget, for instance, the time he ate KFC with a fork and broke the Internet?
