Is the president obligated to eat a healthy diet?

According to The New York Times, President Trump drinks an astonishing 12 Diet Cokes per day and regularly ordered "two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted" from McDonald's on the campaign trail. Many are concerned about Trump's health and wonder if, as president, he is obligated to take better care of himself. But others feel Trump's food choices aren't anyone's business, and this is just another excuse to attack the president. What do you think? 🍔 🍟

A new book by former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski and aid David Bossie describes Donald Trump's disturbing eating habits on the campaign trail. Trump's regular McDonald's order was a 2,400-calorie meal consisting of "two Big Macs, two Filet-O-Fish, and a chocolate malted,” doubling the American Heart Association's recommended sodium intake.

A dinner of that size would offer caloric energy for a full day. The 3,400 milligrams of sodium more than doubles the American Heart Association’s recommendation of 1,500 milligrams per day. The meal provides almost no fiber—and also offers more white bread than anyone would do well to eat in a week. This is all ominous for the president’s cardiovascular system.

Trump Force One was reportedly full of junk food like "Vienna Fingers, potato chips, pretzels, and many packages of Oreos." Even Ivanka Trump has urged her father to take better care of himself.

“On Trump Force One there were four major food groups: McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza, and Diet Coke.”
Ivanka Trump said in a 2015 interview with Barbara Walters, “I wish he would eat healthier and maybe slow down. Sometimes I tell him, like, ‘Oh, you have to, you know, slow down.’ But it’s the only speed he knows ...”

Trump doesn't seem to hide his eating habits, like when he was photographed eating KFC on his private plane.

The New York Times reported Trump drinks a dozen Diet Cokes every day, a surprise considering he's made negative comments about Diet Coke drinkers in the past.

CNN dedicated an entire segment to Trump's eating habits.

"This is not what doctors would recommend. This is not the healthiest diet."

But others have found the reporting to be absurd. Trump's diet shouldn't be up for debate, and clearly it hasn't slowed him down thus far.
