Americans Mocked Trump for Having Burger With PM Abe, But Japanese Rushed to Join Him

While at the Kasumigaseki Country Club in Japan, President Donald Trump and Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe tackled business over a couple of hamburgers.

Twitter users were quick to point out that Trump traveled the globe to eat an American staple and contrasted it with former President Barack Obama’s trip when he dined with Abe at one of the top sushi restaurants.

According to the Daily Mail, the burgers were created by chef Yutaka Yanagisawa, who owns the restaurant Munch’s Burger Shack.

Grubstreet reported that Trump’s well-done colby jack cheeseburger received a “very good” review from the president and it seems he isn’t alone in his assessment of Munch’s.

The outlet reported that one location sold out of all 21 different kinds of burgers by 2:30 p.m. the next day and customers experienced long lines.

Munch’s addressed the influx of customers on Facebook and according to a translation by Google, called serving Trump an “honor.” The post also apologized for any inconvenience the restaurant’s publicity has caused its regular patrons but encouraged customers to continue to visit if they have “plenty of time.”

An Instagram post from the restaurant shows an option for the “President Trump Set,” which consists of a colby jack cheeseburger, french fries, and coleslaw.

Grubstreet reported that the teppanyaki chain Ginza Ukai Tei also benefited from hosting world leaders and its shares increased by seven percent after Trump and Abe dined there.
