On Tuesday, President Donald Trump visited South Korea as part of his Asia trip. He gave a speech about the trade deficit and then sat down for lunch. But the decision of whom he ate with is awesome.

Trump was given the option to have a fancy lunch with South Korean President Moon Jae-In but insisted on sitting down for “Taco Tuesday” with the troops.

Trump said:

“I had a choice of having a beautiful, very fancy lunch and I said no, I want to eat with the troops and we ate with the troops."

Pvt. Merion Holmes said “he'd rather eat with the troops than at a fancy restaurant” and that it made “him feel like he cared.”

It's the little things.

Watch the lunch here.
