Trump’s former physician, Dr Ronny Jackson, has said that in order to help the president lose up to 15 pounds, he hid vegetables in his food.
Dr Jackson said that alongside introducing exercise machines at the White House, he used to put cauliflower in the US president’s mashed potatoes in his failed efforts to help him lose weight.
Despite Trumps own claims that his time on the golf course could be classed as exercise, Dr Jackson tried to help the president shed between 10 and 15 pounds.
Dr Jackson said: “The exercise stuff never took off as much as I wanted it to. But we were working on his diet. We were making the ice cream less accessible; we were putting cauliflower into the mashed potatoes.”
Trump was the oldest incoming US president at the age of 70 and had to have a cognitive test as part of his first medical check-up.
Following the test, Dr Jackson said: “I feel very confident that he has a very strong and a very probable possibility of making it completely through his presidency with no medical issues.”
