President Donald Trump reportedly eats McDonald's because of his life-long fear of being poisoned.
Trump's love for fast food is tied to fear of being poisoned, according to an excerpt from Michael Wolff's 'Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House' published in New York Magazine on Wednesday. Trump "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," Wolff reports.
It's been reported in the past that Trump has a great fear of germs. On election night 2016, Trump screamed at New Jersey Governor Chris Christie because he gave Trump his 'germy' cell phone.
Christie said: ‘Hey Donald. The President talked to me earlier’ — the two had gotten to know each other after Superstorm Sandy. Christie said: ‘If you win he’s going to call my phone, and I’ll pass it over to you’. Trump ‘flashed a look of annoyance, clearly resenting the intrusion’ and was repulsed by the idea of having somebody else’s phone next to his face. Trump told Christie: ‘Hey Chris, you know my f***ing phone number. Just give it to the President. I don’t want your f***ing phone’. Aides said that Christie’s move was the ‘ultimate mistake’ and one from which he ‘wouldn’t recover’.
