Is it weird that I think this is ADORABLE?

Trump met with Singaporean Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong on Monday. During their lunch, the latter had a special birthday cake brought out for the American president, who will turn 72 Thursday.
Singapore’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Vivian Balakrishnan tweeted out a picture of the festivities.
“We appreciate your hospitality and professionalism and your friendship,” Trump reportedly said in response. “You’re my friend,” the president told Prime Minister Lee. The meal also included lobster bisque, beef tenderloin and ice cream.
In one scene from the event, Trump can be seen blowing out the cake’s sole candle. We can all probably guess what the president wished for.
“We’ve got a very interesting meeting in particular tomorrow, and I just think it’s going to work out very nicely,” Trump said Monday.
