Top Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said Friday that President Donald Trump does not appear to be following his diet after his medical examination earlier this month.
Schumer, the New Yorker and Senate Minority Leader, told The New York Times Friday that he ordered a bun-less cheeseburger when he had lunch with Trump last Friday at the White House to discuss a last-minute immigration deal to avert a federal shutdown.
Trump, Schumer said, ordered a cheeseburger with a bun and "a whole lot of French fries."
"I said, 'You're not really paying attention to your diet," Schumer told the Times in a podcast, "and he said, 'No.'"
Navy Dr. Ronny Jackson said that President Trump was in "excellent health" after his Jan. 12 physical at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, but later acknowledged to CNN's Dr. Sanjay Gupta that he was already on cholesterol-lowering medication.
