Donald Trump Says He Would Cancel State Dinner with Chinese President, Get Him a Big Mac Instead

During his latest appearance on Fox News, Donald Trump said that he would give China’s leader an extra-large Big Mac instead of a state dinner. 

During his latest appearance on Fox News, Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump told Bill O’Reilly that he did not believe China’s president, Xi Jinping, was deserving of his state dinner at the White House, scheduled for September.

“I would not be throwing him a dinner,” Trump told O’Reilly. “I’d get him a McDonald's hamburger and I’d say we gotta get down to work because you can’t continue to devalue [Chinese currency].”

Trump’s was critical of the economic relationship between China and the United States, between which he called for a “big uncoupling.” Trump also accused China of having “sucked all of our jobs” from the country — a point that O’Reilly countered by suggested that instead, it was American companies that had been transferring operations to China.

Trump then predicted that he would get along “very well” with the Chinese president, suggesting that America’s relationship with China has been too one-sided. “You know, we’ll give him a steak dinner and what he’s done is sucked all of our jobs and he’s sucked the money right out of our country,” Trump said.

When asked by O’Reilly if he would indeed confront Xi, Trump clarified, “I’d probably get him a double, probably a double-size Big Mac.”
