Donald Trump, the President-elect of the United States, will be the first president to receive a commemorative Lincoln Premium chicken sandwich, which will be served during his first visit to the White House, the White Houses press secretary has said.
Donald Trump (@realDonaldTrump) November 22, 2017 The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, told reporters that the President has been asked to eat lunch at Lincoln Premium.
“The President will be receiving a Lincoln Premium Chicken sandwich during his visit to Washington, D.C. during the Thanksgiving holiday,” she said.
“He is not happy about that.”
The President-Elect has been a frequent diner at Lincoln premium chicken restaurants in Washington, DC and Maryland, but he has not been able to enjoy the meal in person, she said, adding that the chicken was cooked in an oven before being delivered to the president.
“The President has requested that we cook the chicken in an electric grill and then deliver it to him, so that he can enjoy it in person,” Sanders said.
The president has not yet eaten at Lincoln, however, and his press secretary said that the Whitehouse will continue to serve meals.
Trump’s turkey sandwich will be on display in the Oval Office on Wednesday morning, as he visits the Capitol for a meeting of the House and Senate on the American Health Care Act (AHCA).
The Trump administration has not released a timeline for when the president will receive the sandwich, but Sanders said that it will be delivered during his trip to the Capitol on Tuesday.
“As soon as President Trump arrives, the Lincoln Premium menu will be available for his visit,” she told reporters.
The President, who has previously said that he does not want the lunch to be served in person because he would like to enjoy it on his desk, will likely eat the chicken sandwich before his speech to the House, Sanders said, suggesting that it would be in the vicinity of a table.
Trump, who previously served a turkey sandwich during a visit to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida in November, is expected to make a statement at 11am EST.
