Saudi Arabia to serve Donald Trump steak and ketchup to keep him happy

When President Donald Trump sits down for dinner in Saudi Arabia, caterers have ensured that his favourite meal — steak with ketchup on the side — will be offered alongside traditional local cuisine. 

At Nato and the G7 summits, foreign delegations have had word the new US president prefers short presentations and lots of visual aids.

And at all of Mr Trump's five stops on his first overseas trip, his team has spent weeks building daily downtime into his otherwise jam-packed schedule. 

It's all part of a worldwide effort to accommodate America's homebody president on a voyage with increasingly raised stakes given the ballooning controversy involving his campaign's possible ties to Russia.
