“Let Trump Be Trump” Memoir Reveals Trump’s Presidential McDonald’s Order

President Trump’s former campaign managers, Corey Lewandowski and David Bossie’s memoir “Let Trump Be Trump” is hitting stores and sites worldwide tomorrow, December 5th. The writings cover the drama that unfurled during the 2016 presidential campaign, as well as small tidbits about Trump’s favorite fast foods.

Washington Post reporters received a copy of the memoir early, and found some interesting facts about Trump’s food habits that resemble a 13-year-old boy.

The book noted that when Trump went to McDonald’s, he would order “two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted.”

According to The Guardian, Trump’s order weighs in at 2,420 calories, 112g of fat, and 3,470mg of salt, factoids that are much, much higher than the FDA’s recommended daily intake for men.

“On Trump Force One there were four major food groups,” they write. “McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza and Diet Coke.” The authors added that Air Force One was also stocked with sealed packages of potato chips and Oreo cookies, because Trump would only eat from a fresh, unopened package of snacks.

President Trump was also very particular about his fast food, with Bossie and Lewandowsky claiming that “the orchestrating and timing of Mr. Trump’s meals was as important as any other aspect of his march to the presidency.”

To top that, Lewandowski claimed that Trump once fired staffer Sam Nunberg at a McDonald’s because his off-menu order was taking too long for his liking.

“Leave him,” the author remembers Trump saying. “Let’s go.”

Trump’s love of fast food chains isn’t exactly a surprise. In May 2018, Trump celebrated winning the Republican nomination with a Big Mac and fries, and in August 2016, he shared a photo of himself enjoying KFC aboard his private jet.
