There’s perhaps no figure in America, political or otherwise, who’s more polarizing right now than Donald Trump. The populist, xenophobic Republican frontrunner is definitely a “love him or hate him” kind of guy, and American politics has never seen anyone quite like him. But what does the real estate tycoon like to eat? We scoured the web and tracked down some answers.
We found the most info from an Us Weekly article published last September, which was written by Trump. In it, he reveals that he likes cherry-vanilla ice cream, See’s Candies, and hamburgers; doesn’t drink coffee, tea, or alcohol; scrapes the toppings off his pizza and “never eats the dough;” eats lunch at his desk, and eats his sister’s meatloaf on his birthday (he closes with “I’m actually very modest,” though, so take his word with a grain of salt).
Trump also dined on steak and potatoes during a recent campaign stop near Des Moines, and during a rare retail campaign stop at New Hampshire’s famous Red Arrow Diner he ordered a cheeseburger with fries, a ball of deep-fried macaroni and cheese, and a Diet Coke. Because he doesn’t eat with the masses too often, there aren’t many other details about what he eats, but we have a feeling it involves a lot of steak, and probably some caviar as well.
