Pass the ice cream! All eyes were on President Donald Trump and North Korean Chairman Kim Jong-un on Monday, June 11, as the two leaders met in Singapore for a landmark summit to discuss nuclear disarmament. Though CNN reports the nearly five-hour talk ended with only a “vague pledge” that North Korea will disarm, many on Twitter were more taken with what the world leaders dined on during their important discussion.

According to the menu, which was provided by the White House, Trump and Kim Jong-un feasted on prawns, fresh octopus and Korean stuffed cucumber to start, and were fed beef short ribs, sweet and sour pork with fried rice and soy-braised cod fish for the main course. For dessert, the leaders indulged in a dark chocolate tart, Tropézienne — a filled brioche pastry that originated in St. Tropez — and Häagen-Dazs vanilla ice cream topped with cherry coulis.

It didn’t take long before the eclectic menu made its way to social media and Twitter users began chastising Trump and Kim Jong-un for their interesting food choices. Many Twitter users roasted Trump in particular because he is known as a notoriously picky eater who, as evidenced by some of the more casual items on this menu, loves fast food.

As one Twitter user asked: “Wait, was Haagen-Dazs a sponsor of the Trump-Kim lunch? How else did it get its branding onto the menu?”
