President Donald Trump reacted to the breaking news that celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain committed suicide in France on Friday.

“I think it’s very sad … that was very shocking when I woke up this morning: Anthony Bourdain is dead and I enjoyed his show,” Trump said. “He was quite a character, I will say.”
The president commented on the sad news as he left the White House to travel to the G7 summit of world leaders in Canada.

He extended his sorrow and condolences to the Bourdain family as well as the family of Kate Spade, the fashion designer who also committed suicide this week.
