While it could just be a publicity stunt to connect with proles, there is a lot of other evidence out there that Trump genuinely likes to eat prole food.
When I was a kid, and even when I was a college student, I never knew that fast food was low class. This is either because people who grow up prole are blind to the class markers of their proleness, or because attitudes towards fast food have changed substantially during the last 25 years.
I do think that when Trump was growing up in the 1950s, there was much greater uniformity in the eating habits of Americans, and that fast food restaurants as they existed back then (1952 was when McDonalds and Kentucky Fried Chicken both started franchising) were acceptable middle-class places to eat, and even the upper-middle class could eat there without being disgusted by it. I believe that Trump, unlike most other people, does not change his values based on changes going on in society, because he is immune to peer-pressure persuasion.
