“When President Donald Trump travels abroad … his hosts usually try make him feel at home with his favorite meal: steak with miniature bottles of ketchup on the side. But what’s a beef-lover to do in India? The president, whose diet is often a rotation of steaks, burgers and meatloaf, faces a potential shock as he prepares to travel to three Indian cities this week,” CNN wrote.
The liberal community then defined that cows are revered as sacred in most of the areas that Trump will go to and that Prime Minister Narendra Modi plans to serve vegetarian meals throughout the president’s go to.
“Trump’s aides have been known to intervene to ensure Trump’s tastes are catered to when he’s on the road (he once had steak twice in a day while abroad.)

The report made positive to notice that “even one of the president’s favorite fast food restaurants, McDonald’s, doesn’t serve beef in India,” so a former official is worried.
“I do not know what he will do on this case,” somebody recognized as a “former official” advised CNN.
“If there was just one article that encapsulated how CNN’s obsession with attacking President Trump borders on parody, this might be it,” Media Analysis Middle analyst Kristine Marsh wrote. “The elitist reporters ended their article harping on Trump for staying awake on Air Force One and preferring to sleep in his own bed.”

She made a number of factors, together with that Trump “reportedly enjoys treating himself to an extra scoop of ice cream after dinner every night” however “proposes cutting billions in social support and health care.”
Again in Might 2017, CNN was widely panned for devoting important airtime to a Time journal report that Trump was served two scoops of vanilla ice cream at a dinner with reporters. CNN’s often-sarcastic chyron even known as the additional scoop of ice cream an “executive privilege.”
CNN’s Jeanne Moos reported the additional serving of ice cream in a phase that additionally identified that Trump was presumably served a special salad dressing than his friends and that he generally eats quick meals.
