President Donald Trump has credited McDonald's french fries as the probable reason he did not go bald. On Wednesday, September 30, Trump responded to a 2018 study where scientists in Japan found that a certain chemical found in the fries could be a cure for baldness, reports The Sun.

Former President George W Bush's press secretary Ari Fleischer, who is bald, had tweeted in 2018 that the apparent chemical in the fries "doesn't work." In the study, scientists said the chemical in question which is added to french fries to stop the cooking oil from frothing. According to researchers, when they had tested the chemicals on mice, the rodents regrew hair. "No wonder I didn't lose my hair," Trump said in response to Fleischer's old tweet. 



 

It has been reported that Trump is a huge fan of fast-food, especially McDonald's. As per Michael Wolff's 2018 book 'Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House', Trump prefers fast-food because he's scared of getting poisoned. In the book, Wolff had written, "He had a longtime fear of being poisoned, one reason why he liked to eat at McDonald’s – nobody knew he was coming and the food was safely premade." 

Many social media users took commented after Trump's praise for McDonald's fries. One user wrote, "Haha maccas is scamming Donnie the dunce to power eat fries to sustain that $70k nightmare he thinks is hair. Nice gorilla marketing @McDonalds every insecure bald dude will be ordering bags of fries. #TrumpHair #TrumpIsALoser." Another social media commented, "Pot calling the kettle black. You piece of s**t... the President that eats McDonalds, hides his bald spot while hold his little d**k in his hand. The do nothing all day president. Go suck Putin’s d**k you morbidly obese Cheeto looking loser."



 

 

 



 

"In the end he’ll be done in by greed, ego & lust for power. Nothing was ever enuf & in the end he’ll be bald, no orange glow or dentures, no McDonalds, no Diet Coke & nobody left to give a s**t about him. He’s defective. He’s scared. He’s angry. Show him the door," commented another user. Yet another social media user chimed in and shared, "Brian...Lets be [email protected] is a COWARD ! He hides behind ANYTHING he can, phone, his tanning lotion, his bald spot, his wives & children...not attending historical events. He is in his bedroom watching TV and just ordered a McDonalds burger." Another user slammed Trump saying, "You will lose because your entire campaign is ran off of lies, division, racism, and gas lighting. Majority of Americans hated you in 2016 and even more do now. Now kindly, f**k off and get back to stuffing your face with McDonalds fries."



 

 

 



 

 

 



 

As per recent reports, Trump wrote off more than $70,000 spent on getting his hair done while on 'The Apprentice' as a business expense. Earlier in August, the POTUS had complained about hair-washing, which had prompted the US government to propose changing shower pressure standards. The Trump administration had proposed a rule change that would allow showerheads to boost the water pressure. This came after Trump complained that the bathroom fixtures do not necessarily work to his liking.

Back in 2019, after the Clemson Tigers football team won the national college championship, Trump had welcomed them at the White House with a massive fast food fest. The meal had included pizzas and burgers from Wendy's and McDonald's and of course, french fries. 

"We ordered American fast food, paid for by me. Lots of hamburgers, lots of pizza. We have some very large people that like eating, so I think we’re going to have a little fun," Trump said.
