Trump unleashes a fierce debate over Philly’s best cheesesteak as he posts a glowing Air Force One photo

Donald Trump concluded a broadcast from a Philadelphia town hall last night by uploading a festive photo to Instagram in which he enjoys one of the city’s world-famous cheesesteak aboard Air Force One.

“Great to be back in Philadelphia,” Trump wrote with the image of him beaming next to a sandwich after Tuesday’s ABC event. Thank you Pennsylvania, goodbye! #MAGA ‘

The image, which has since garnered more than 1.5 million likes, was quickly inundated with comments from supporters across the state excited to see Trump savor one of Pennsylvania’s most beloved delicacies.

“Well, glad you got a Philly cheesesteak! We love you in Pa! You are the best, ‘wrote one user.

But fierce debate also erupted among Philadelphia residents demanding where the president bought the sandwich from, whether it was from Pat’s or his rival Geno’s – two legendary haunts across the street from each other on Passyunk Avenue.

“Pat’s or Geno’s?” read dozens of comments on both Instagram and Twitter.

Even the president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., demanded an answer, tweeting his dad, “ 2 cheesesteaks. Is that one Pat van Gino ??? ‘

Left wing political activist Jack Pesobiec replied, “Bun is way too dry to be Pat’s. Looks more like Geno’s. ‘

Others expressed the hope that the president had ventured to lesser-known but seemingly superior places.

“It better be from Jay’s on South Street, otherwise it’s useless!” one user wrote.

Not wading into politics, but apparently Trump and co. have sparked a cheesesteak debate claiming that Pat’s and Geno’s are the best, ‘added another. ‘They are not, it is tourist waste. D’Alessandro’s or [get out]’.

DailyMail.com has since learned that the president actually ordered the cheesesteak from Dalessandro’s Steaks.

Trump previously visited Geno’s stopover in the city in September 2017, but seems to have changed his preference.

Pat and Geno’s cheesesteak debate is one of Philly’s biggest food rivalries, according to Phillybite.com.

Pat’s founder, Pat Olivieri, claimed to be the original inventor of the cheesesteak and opened a store on 9th Street and Passyunk Avenue, in South Philadelphia, in the 1930s.

Geno’s launched their cheesesteak shop right across the street 36 years later, claiming to have mastered the sandwich.

Both eateries reportedly use the same bread and cheese, although consumers are usually divided over the steak itself: Pat’s chops are steak, while Geno serves the meat in slices.

Dalessandro’s, meanwhile, claims to serve a cheesesteak ‘like no other’ on its website.

The eatery, which opened in the 1960s, has won several awards year after year, making it the best place to go for one of Philly’s best, even offering customers free toppings.

While the origin of the sandwich - or sandwiches - remains unclear, Trump previously made a personal visit to Geno's during a previous visit to the city in September 2017.

The president’s daughter, Ivanka Trump, started a debate on Twitter herself, uploading the photo of her father with his cheesesteak next to one of him posing with a taco bowl in 2016.

Taco Bowl VS Philly Cheesesteak? Retweet for Taco Bowl, like for Cheesesteak, ‘she wrote.

As of Wednesday afternoon, the cheesesteak photo-op won with a landslide from 28,000 likes to 5,300,000 retweets.

The photo of the taco bowl – showing Trump with one hand raising a thumb and the other hand holding a fork – caused a lot of controversy when it was first uploaded to the president’s official Twitter page on May 5, 2016 .

In endorsing the snap, the president wrote, ‘Happy Cinco De Mayo! The best taco bowls are made at Trump Tower Grill. I love Hispanics! ‘

It was later discovered that Trump Tower Grill wasn’t even serving taco bowls at the time, and users mercilessly made fun of the unattractive-looking dish and its apparent lack of traditional ingredients, such as tomatoes and avocados.

Then presidential opponent Hillary Clinton also responded to Trump’s claims that he “loves Hispanics” on Twitter.

“I love Hispanics!” “Trump, 52 minutes ago,” Clinton wrote. They are being deported. “- Trump, yesterday,” she continued.

The president’s latest upload has caused significantly less controversy, although not everyone harbored the idea that he was eating the sandwich at all.

“Sling with a Philly cheesesteak that you probably threw in the trash right after the photo you took,” wrote Euguene Gu.

Show us a video of you eating a cheesesteak sandwich. I dare you double, ”added Tom Joseph.

A Trump supporter shot back: ‘So Trump eating a Philly cheesesteak is admitting, but Biden plays Despasito [sic] not at his meeting? ‘

Hours earlier, Trump took part in a socially detached broadcast from ABC City Hall in Philadelphia, targeting the recent New York City shooting, before vigorously defending law enforcement, arguing that they “ should be able to do their job ” in Democrat-led areas across the country.

The primetime special was the first of its kind in this election cycle and the first time in many months that Trump has come into contact with undecided voters. It was held in a virtually empty hall, with the small number of questions the only audience, some of whom kept their masks on when they spoke.

“If you want to stop the crime, we have to give the police back the respect they deserve. They’ve done a fantastic job in so many locations, but then bad things happen, ” Trump said.

Look at New York. New York was a very safe city. Rudy Giuliani did a fantastic job. The city was safe, and then all of a sudden we have a mayor who is going to cut back the police and crime is up 100 percent, 150 percent. I saw a crime rate that increased 300 percent, ”he continued.

The president’s performance in Philadelphia appeared to receive mixed reviews.

While many welcomed the president’s pit stop in the City of Brotherly Charity, others urged him to “get out of my town.”

‘A Philly cheesesteak on Air Force One with the greatest president ever … PRICELESS!’ Wrote one user. “Thank you for loving our country, sir.”

Mr. President, you did well yesterday. With ABC you kept your head high and you were fearless. Keep going, Mr. President, your hard work will pay off, ”said another.

One user, on the other hand, said, “Don’t rush back seems to be the message coming from Philadelphia.”

“I don’t think eating a cheesesteak will wipe out your terrible record,” wrote another user, to which a second replied, “Counterpoint: A cheesesteak can run the country better.”
