Saudi Arabia will serve Trump well done halal steak and ketchup, Chicago Tribune reports.
Foreign leaders are trying to cater to Trump on his tour of Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Vatican, Brussels and Sicily. That includes catering to his ego, short attention span, and his tummy.
Trump’s penchant for familiar food, accommodations, and fear of the unknown have officials afraid the nine-day trip might lead him to avoid future international excursions. It’s the first time in his presidency he’ll be sleeping somewhere other than the White House or a property he owns.
“The chance of something going wrong — you insult the hosts, you get sick, your boss gets sick, you miscommunicate with your hosts, you make a scheduling error, you need to change the schedule just hours before a meeting, the motorcade get stuck in traffic, or the plane is stranded due to bad weather — is extremely high,” said Julianne Smith, a former foreign policy adviser to Vice President Joe Biden and current senior fellow at the Center for New American Security.
“Personally, I think they should cut it back now before they regret it,” she said of Trump’s long jaunt.
