An uncomfortable cultural division is about to pay out in India this week, as a burger-loving president will be forced to attend several vegetarian meals.
President Donald Trump, who prefers his steaks well done and his burgers from McDonald’s, will have at least one lunch and a banquet with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, who is a devoted vegetarian.
CNN spoke with a person close to the president who has dined with him several times. According to the friend, the president will have a salad every now and then, but outside of that, “I have never seen him eat a vegetable.”
Often, international leaders have found ways to accommodate Trump’s dietary restrictions for processed foods, but most Indian states ban cow slaughter. The only places that don’t are Kerala, West Bengal and states of the northeast.
“I don’t know what he’s going to do in this case. They don’t serve cheeseburgers,” a former official told CNN.
