Despite racism allegations leveled against President Donald Trump since he resumed office, it is very rare to see someone who can stand for him especially in Islamic dominated countries.
In an unusual state, a café situated in Dhaka is attracting Bangladeshis despite being named after Trump.
The café, opened by a self-professed Trump fan, is an affirmation from the investor that Trump is not anti-Islam.
The cafe serves Thai, Chinese and Indian dishes, with specials given names like the “Trump burger”.
CNN is broadcast to give an extra American flavour, while the wi-fi password is “Ivanka Trump”.
But it’s the pull power of the man himself that is bringing in curious customers.
Shafiul Islam, who owned the cafe said, “If he were anti-Muslim, he would not have visited Saudi Arabia and had a good time there.”
According to Shafiul, none of Trump’s decisions had affected Bangladesh’s 144 million-odd Muslims.
Shaiful, further maintained that people has been patronising his café despite Trump’s political differences.
“Girls are his bigger fans. They come to take selfies with the Trump picture. Children love him too,” he said, adding more visitors snapped photos than ordered food.
