Trump's hamburger sells out in Japan
foxnews.com -- Nov 09
While visiting Japan, President Trump ate a hamburger, setting off a Twitter firestorm of those both praising and criticizing the choice.

However, his classically American meal has skyrocketed one small business owner in Tokyo to fame.

When Yutaka Yanagisawa, owner of Munch’s Burger Shack in the Minato Ward in Tokyo, was chosen to serve the president of the United States, he accepted the opportunity, and it’s been paying off ever since.

Sora New 24 reported that customers have been coming to the 40-year-old chef's two burger shack locations by the hordes to buy the Trump burger – a Colby Jacket Cheese Burger made with 100 percent American Angus beef, and costs 1,200 yen ($10.54).
