Keith Schiller, Trump's longtime Lieutenant and recent Head of Oval Office Operations, was tasked with getting Trump McDonald's after chefs at the White House were unable to recreate the McDonald's magic.
And when the White House kitchen staff couldn’t match the satisfaction of a quarter-pounder with cheese (no pickles, extra ketchup) and a fried apple pie, it was Schiller, bodyguard and Trump whisperer, who would head down New York Avenue to McDonald’s on a stealth fast food run.
Curing the campaign, Schiller fetched Trump's McDonald's with relish.
During the campaign, he would make runs to the McDonald’s near the Marine Air Terminal in Queens while Trump waited in the limo – Egg McMuffins were often the order in the morning, or two quarter-pounders and a large fries later in the day, according to a former aide.
Trump was sad when Schiller left the White House.
The departure of the loyal bodyguard – who most administration insiders say was the first person to see Trump in the morning and the last person to communicate with him at night – was seen as the end of an era for the Trump administration. Among a stream of high-powered resignations, it was Schiller’s more under-the-radar leave-taking, White House officials say, that has had the longest-lasting effect on the president.
