Donald Trump moaned he’s never asked what his favourite milkshake is on the campaign trail – then refused to say what it was.
Meanwhile, it emerged Trump had brought a highly classified security briefing to a halt to order a milkshake.
During a call-in interview with Fox News, the President complained that election frontrunner Joe Biden had been asked what kind of ice cream milkshake he’d bought by reporters as he left a diner in Delaware.
President Trump, who is Commander in Chief of the United States’ Armed Forces, said: “Look at yesterday, he walks out of a store and the media’s standing there and they asked him ‘what flavour ice cream did you get?’
“Think of it! They never ask me a question like that. I want them to some day. But they never ask me a question like that.”
At the end of the interview, host Will Cain said: “You seemed a little disappointed that you never get asked what your favourite milkshake is.
“So after a 40 minute interview and I don’t know, maybe two dozen questions, do you want to tell our audience what your favourite milkshake flavour is?”
But for some reason, the President declined to answer the question.
He said: “Yeah, I would. And in about a year when everything is so perfect, I’m going to let you …ask me that question, and I’m going to give you the nicest answer.
“You know why? Because I’d love to have a question like that. But in the meantime we’re in the middle of a battle that we have to win.”
Earlier it was reported President Trump had, in 2017, halted a classified briefing on Afghanistan because he craved a milkshake.
According to Politico, he asked senior defence and intelligence officials “does anyone want a malt?”
“We have the best malts, you have to try them,” he added, inviting a waiter into the where code-word classified intelligence was being discussed.
