This marks the 57th day the president has spent at a Trump property as president.
The Washington Post reported in May it appeared that the president had only eaten out twice in D.C. as president, both times at the steakhouse at the Trump International Hotel, which is also frequently visited by protesters.
Trump’s visit came a day after the White House was engulfed in a major staff shakeup which saw the dismissal of outgoing chief of staff Reince Priebus in the wake of his highly publicized feud with new communications director Anthony Scaramucci.
