Trump lost weight out of office because he no longer has access to the 24-hour White House kitchen, former aide says

Jason Miller made the claim in an interview with Britain’s GB News TV channel.

Former President Donald Trump lost weight in recent months mainly because he no longer has 24-hour access to the White House kitchen, his former advisor Jason Miller said Sunday.

In an interview with GB News, a British TV channel, Miller described the former president as “a lot happier” as well as being “tanned” and “rested” since leaving the White House in January.

Miller said he recently visited Trump in Florida, where they discussed his well-being.

When asked about Trump’s weight, Miller said the president cited “not having the kitchen there 24/7… a little bit of golf and a whole lot of endorsement.”

The last point appears to be a reference to Trump’s moves to project his influence by endorsing candidates who embrace his politics, or aim to unseat his enemies.

In April this year, an unnamed Trump advisor told Insider’s Tom LoBianco that Trump had “lost 15 pounds since he left the White House.”

In the GB News interview, Miller said that Trump has lost “20 to 25 pounds” since January.

A June 2020 physical exam said that Trump’s weight was 244 pounds, ABC News reported, which is over the clinical threshold for obesity.

“In theory, we were working 24/7,” Bill Yosses said, though he said no president had then asked for a midnight snack.

Trump does not appear to have spoken much about the 24-hour service in the White House, although he has previously expressed his love of junk food and sweets.
