Turns out Kim Jong Un might be as big of a fast food fan as Trump.
According to a new U.S. intelligence assessment, while the North Korean leader is no longer willing to give up his nuclear weapons, he said he may open a “Western hamburger franchise in Pyongyang as a show of goodwill,” NBC reports.
This consolation prize of sorts is said to have possibly been suggested by Kim as a way to gain favor with the burger-loving president.
In 2016 at a campaign rally in Atlanta, Trump said he’d invite Kim to the U.S. for a state dinner, but instead of doing something formal, the two would simply dine on the fast-food American staple.
“We should be eating a hamburger on a conference table, and we should make better deals with China and others and forget the state dinners,” Trump said.
POTUS’ love of burgers has been well-documented in the past, from his reported go-to McDonald’s order of two Big Macs to his request for an American-beef burger during a lunch in Tokyo with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe.
Most recently, Trump’s attorney, Rudy Giuliani, revealed the president has taken to ordering his burgers with only half a bun “in service to his health.”
