President Trump invited the Clemson Tigers—2018 college football champs—to the White House, where he served a banquet of “McDonald’s, Wendy’s and Burger Kings (sic) with some pizza,” because he assumes “that’s their favorite food.” They apparently liked it.
Trump’s assumption about the Clemson players is no surprise, because Trump can only see the world in terms of himself, and that stuff is his favorite food.

Trump once even promoted eating pizza incorrectly:
He seems to at least know how to pizza the right way:

And lastly, though he famously doesn't drink alcohol—his brother died of the stuff—he does drink junk. Here he is—the President of the United States—drinking Diet Coke from a wine glass at a toast at the United Nations:
