New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says President Donald Trump made him order meatloaf when they dined together at the White House this week.
Christie and his wife, Mary Pat, joined Trump at the White House on Tuesday.
The Republican governor said while guest-hosting WFAN's "Boomer & Carton Show" Thursday that Trump pointed out the menu and told people to get whatever they want. Then he said he and Christie were going to have the meatloaf.
"This is what it's like to be with Trump," Christie said. "He says, 'There's the menu, you guys order whatever you want.' And then he says, 'Chris, you and I are going to have the meatloaf.'"
Trump said "I'm telling you, the meatloaf is fabulous," according to Christie.
It's not the first time Trump has insisted on having the delectable comfort food. Long before he was President, Trump tried to order it at one of New York's best-known steakhouses.
“I once served Trump at Sparks Steakhouse," Sammy Musovic told the Daily News last year.
"He asked for meatloaf, but we didn’t have it on the menu,” recalled Musovic, who waited on the now-President about 15 years ago at the famed Midtown restaurant.
As a result, Musovic served a Trump-inspired meatloaf dinner at his Upper East Side restaurant Vero leading up to the New York presidential primaries in 2016.
At the lunch on Tuesday, Trump and Christie discussed the nation's opioid epidemic.
Christie on Wednesday signed a series of bills he requested to address the crisis, including a five-day limit on initial prescriptions for opioids and mandating state-regulated insurance plans cover treatment.
But one notable item was not discussed — Christie said the pair did not address any potential jobs for the embattled New Jersey governor.
