Burger Trump Ate in Japan Causes Shortage at Tokyo Fast Food Chain

Donald Trump’s tweets can move markets, cutting through the world economy and registering with massive effect on the national psyche, but his predilection for junk food and heavily burnt ketchup steaks appears to be sowing cheeseburger pandemonium in Japan.  

During the president’s current tour of Asia, Trump chose not to indulge in some of the Japan’s native and instead opted for a burger in a recent meeting with Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe. Surrounded by the familiar trappings of a golf club and snapping cameras, Trump ate a $10 Colby Jack Cheese Burger from Munch’s Burger Shack, an American-style burger chain headquartered in Tokyo.

But Trump’s meal threw the fickle winds of the Japanese burger economy into a frenzied storm. Huge queues started forming outside of Munch’s locations immediately after images of Trump’s burger were seen online and the burgers quickly sold out, according to Japanese media reports.
