NATIONAL HARBOR, MD — During his appearance at the annual meeting of the Conservative Political Action Conference President Donald Trump took some time to praise a well known New Jersey soup company.

According to a story in the Daily Mail, Trump told the audience, "I like Campbell's Soup." The comment came not long after Campbell's CEO Denise Morrison joined other manufacturing CEOs for a meeting with the president at the White House.

After introducing herself, the President responded, "good soup."

As he started the meeting Trump said, "Bringing manufacturing back to America, creating high-wage jobs was one of our campaign promises and themes, and it resonated with everybody." After just over one month in office Trump said, "People are saying they've never seen so much happen in 30 days of a presidency, we've delivered a lot."

This is not the first time food, New Jersey, and the new president have intersected in stories. During his recent appearance on Ask the Governor, Gov. Chris Christie was talking about his trip to the White House and said he was expecting to have hamburgers with for lunch while they discussed a variety of topics.

As it turns out, the governor was not far off as President Trump reportedly told him to order meatloaf for his meal as the longtime friends and their spouses ate together.
