  • Donald Trump is known for a lot of things, and one is his serious love of fast food.

  • You might even call it an obsession.

  • But how did this obsession start and why has is carried with him all the way to the presidency?

  • Here's the secret behind Trump's love of fast food.

  • How do you do it?

  • What's your secret?"

  • "Mm-hmm."

  • If you ever watched commercial television in the '90s, you'll be all too familiar with

  • Donald Trump's fascination with fast food and junk food.

  • Long before he was even thinking about a presidential bid, he was appearing in commercials and promoting

  • fast food chains.

  • We eat our pizza the wrong way!"

  • "Crust first!"

  • Why do New Yorkers have such big mouths?"

  • "Go big, or go home!"

  • "Because they eat big pizza!"

  • And Trump's habit only got worse during the presidential campaign.

  • It's notoriously difficult for presidential candidates to get a healthy meal on the campaign

  • trail, which often leads to overeating.

  • In 2012, for instance, Mitt Romney's campaign coined the term "slunch" to describe the second

  • lunch they would eat each daythough of course, the proper term for a meal between

  • lunch and dinner is "dunch."

  • What about second breakfast?"

  • "I don't think he knows about second breakfast, Pip."

  • So it's no surprise that in their book Let Trump Be Trump, former campaign workers Corey

  • Lewandowski and David Bossie claimed that Trump had four major food groups:

  • "McDonald's, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza, and Diet Coke."

  • Trump's love of fast food is also a strategic choice.

  • According to Republican strategist Russ Schriefer, Trump uses fast food to make himself seem

  • like a regular guy, instead of a billionaire celebrity.

  • "There's nothing more American and more of-the-people than fast food.

  • It is the peculiarity of the brand that he's able to be on his multimillion-dollar jet

  • with the gold and black branding and colors, and at the same time eat KFCand what

  • makes it perfect is he does it all with a knife and fork, while reading The Wall Street Journal.

  • Even Kellyanne Conway has claimed that

  • "it goes with his authenticity.

  • […] I don't think Hillary Clinton would be eating Popeye's biscuits and fried chicken."

  • And when a BBC reporter asked one-time White House communications director Anthony Scaramucci

  • According to Michael Wolff, author of Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House, Trump has

  • "had a longtime fear of being poisoned, one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald's — nobody

  • knew he was coming and the food was safely premade."

  • That's apparently a stark contrast to other eateries which he fears may seek vengeance

  • upon him via culinary malfeasance.

  • "I don't want to go into a restaurant and say, Mr. Trump would like a hamburger to go.

  • Now, I don't know what they're going to do to that hamburger.

  • If they like me, I'm happy."

  • Though Trump's iophobia existed long before he became president,

  • Things have been taken to a new level now that he's in the White House, where staff

  • members are prohibited from touching his toothbrush and other personal items.

  • And when asked if there were people in the White House she distrusts, first lady Melania

  • Trump told ABC News,

  • "You always need to watch your back."

  • No wonder Trump keeps turning to figures everyone can trust instead!

  • It's not just poison that Trump fears, it's also germs.

  • Trump revealed in his 1997 book The Art of the Comeback that he's a germaphobe, writing,

  • "I happen to be a clean hands freak.

  • I feel much better after I thoroughly wash my hands, which I do as much as possible."

  • "I'm also very much of a germaphobe, by the way, believe me."

  • He even admitted to Howard Stern,

  • "It could be a psychological problem."

  • So it makes sense that Trump prefers fast food, which he can get at the takeout window

  • and eat in the safety of his own plane or luxury high rise.

  • In a 2016 rally in South Carolina, Trump praised fast food joints for being so clean.

  • "One bad hamburger, you can destroy McDonald's.

  • One bad hamburger and you take Wendy's and all these other places and they're out of

  • business."

  • He further explained,

  • "I'm a very clean person.

  • I like cleanliness.

  • And I think you're better off going there than maybe some place that you have no idea

  • where the food's coming from."

  • According to a 2018 report by Bloomberg,

  • "Trump weighed in borderline obese at his first presidential physical in January.

  • […] At 239 pounds and 6 feet, 3 inches tall, Trump measured just one pound below obese

  • under guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention."

  • "You heard the doctor.

  • The president has passed every exam we gave him.

  • Physical exam.

  • Mental exam.

  • The Tide Pod challenge?

  • Crushed it!"

  • After the exam, Trump's doctor recommended he cut back on his fast food habit.

  • And Trump also has some peculiar ways of trying to make his meals healthier.

  • For instance, he reportedly skips the bun when he eats fast food sandwiches.

  • Similarly, he claims that when eating pizza, he skips the dough and just eats the toppings.

  • And he always opts for Diet Coke with his meal.

  • Ordering a diet soda with a fast food meal so he can pretend it's healthy?

  • Maybe the President is like the rest of us after all!
