Over the weekend, the New York Times provided more evidence that President Donald Trump's desktop Coke button is indeed real, and he uses it very, very often. From the Times :

Watching cable, he shares thoughts with anyone in the room, even the household staff he summons via a button for lunch or for one of the dozen Diet Cokes he consumes each day.

Trump does not drink coffee or tea; instead the Times says he is "powered by long spells of cable news and a dozen Diet Cokes." In May, Time reported that he appears to drink Diet Coke rather than water during dinner at the White House. And yet, Trump has still not deleted this tweet.


As for the rest of his notorious diet, Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski wrote in his new book that Trump's McDonald's order consisted of "two Big Macs, two Fillet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted."

"Well, he never ate the bread, which is the important part," Lewandowski told CNN.

At the White House, Trump also gets two scoops of ice cream with his chocolate cream pie, while everyone else gets one. Vice President Mike Pence, though, has a fruit plate.
