President Trump forewent a fancy lunch with government diplomats on Tuesday for a lunch with American troops, according to The Daily Caller.
Instead of visiting the demilitarized zone between the Koreas, he chose to visit the troops.
Check it out:
“I had a choice of having a beautiful, very fancy lunch and I said no, I want to eat with the troops and we ate with the troops,” Trump said about his lunch at Camp Humphreys.

Later, he had an operation briefing with leaders of the military.
“I think ultimately it will all work out, it always works out, it has to work out,” Trump said about tensions with North Korea.
Shortly after he landed in Japan Saturday, Trump delivered a speech that could only be interpreted as a warning to North Korea’s Kim Jong Un.
“No one, no dictator, no regime … should underestimate American resolve,” Trump said at Yokota Air Base. “Every once in a while in the past they underestimated us. It was not pleasant for them.”
Trump also discussed U.S. trade deficits while he was there:
“I feel confident that we’ll be able to reach a free, fair, and reciprocal trade deal as we renegotiate our current five-year-old trade document,” Trump said at a press briefing standing beside South Korean President Moon. “Currently, we are looking at ways of improving our economic relationship. I would like to thank President Moon for instructing his trade negotiators to work closely with us to quickly pursue a much better deal — a deal that, frankly, has been quite unsuccessful and not very good for the United States.”
