In contrast to the healthy menu offered to the POTUS in India, Trump who is a non-alcoholic teetotaller and avoids coffee, is reportedly a big fan of fast foods and Diet Coke. Notably during one of the US government shut down - which included a shut down of the White House kitchens - Trump ordered a complete fast-food feast of pizzas, 1000 Hamburgers and fries for dinner while hosting college football champions -Clemson Tigers University. Moreover, Trump reportedly has a "little red button" in the Resolute Desk which when pushed, prompts the staff to serve him with a fresh Diet Coke.
Donald and Melania Trump will visit Delhi and Gujarat on February 24-25 - marking his first presidential visit to India. The trip - which is his first foreign visit since his impeachment acquittal, will include the 'Namaste Trump' event at Ahmedabad's Motera Stadium before he leaves for Agra and then New Delhi. After being received by PM Modi at Ahmedabad airport, en-route to the stadium, a roadshow has been organised in which thousands are expected to greet the leaders.
After the 'Namaste Trump' event, Trump will be visiting Gandhiji's Sabarmati Ashram after which he will fly off to Agra - where he will be received by CM Adityanath. The first couple will visit the Taj Mahal and then head to New Delhi. The next day, i.e. February 25, President Trump and his delegation will hold dialogue with the Indian leadership and both leaders will pay respects to Mahatma Gandhi at Raj Ghat.
