Former President Donald Trump offered a half-eaten slice of pizza to enthusiastic supporters while making a surprise stop at Downtown House of Pizza in Fort Myers, Florida, on Friday night.

The video, posted on Twitter by CNN reporter Kate Sullivan, shows the former president holding a box of pepperoni pizza in one hand and a slice in the other as the crowd chants "Trump."

"Does anybody want a piece that I've eaten?" he shouts before taking a bite from the slice. But even for Trump's adoring supporters, the invitation was too much, and they replied "No!" in unison.

Over 100 supporters rushed to see Trump as he stopped to get pizza, causing "pandemonium," according to local outlet Wink News.

Trump's love of fast food is well-documented. His former aides said that pizza was one of the "major food groups" on Trump Force One, and he even appeared in an ad for Pizza Hut with his ex-wife Ivana in 1995.

However, he has previously said that he doesn't eat pizza crust.

The former president stopped by the eaterie after giving a speech at the Lee County GOP's 2023 Lincoln-Reagan Dinner.

The event included speeches from Rep. Greg Steube, Rep. Byron Donalds, and political operative Roger Stone.
