Piers Morgan: 'Trump Has Paper Covering His Water To Avoid Being Poisoned'
Anchor says President is scared of assassination
British news and TV present, Piers Morgan, has revealed why Donald Trump had a piece of paper covering his glass of water during their recent interview for ITV.
Morgan explained that Trump uses the piece of paper over his glass to avoid being poisoned when drinking water.
Morgan said: 'One woman who came in, working for the White House for years - she said she's here for the presidential water - it's my job to supply the water.'
It's not hard to see that Trump, who is standing up to the global elites, would be vigilant when it comes to subtle assassination attempts - but the is he really that concerned?
DailyMail Reports: Quizzed on whether they were used because Trump is a renowned germophobe, Morgan elaborated: 'It happens for every president - it's all about the president protected.
'From germs that might incapacitate him - but predominantly from being poisoned.'
In an interesting insight into life as the president of the United States, Morgan explained that it was to prevent Trump from being poisoned when drinking water
Viewers were intrigued by the President's drinking habits, with several pointing out that the renowned germaphobe had the white cover on his glass of water
And another view wrote: 'He's covered the top of his water glass with the paper coaster thing. That is proper paranoid. Does he think Piers is going to lace his drink?'
Usually mild-mannered Bake Off host Sue Perkins was rather more direct, firing off a x-rated tweet which read: 'I'd rather d***** with a hedgehog than listen to another second of this circle-w*** #TrumpMorgan.'
In the wide-ranging interview, Mr Trump was also questioned over anger about the invitation extended to him by Prime Minister Theresa May on behalf of the Queen.
Mr Trump said: 'I think I'm very popular in your country.'
Morgan interjects: 'Let's not be too hasty Mr President.'
Mr Trump went on: 'I know but I believe that, I really do. I get so much fan mail from people in your country.
'They love my sense of security, they love what I'm saying about many different things.
'We get tremendous support from people in the UK.'
Asked about opposition to his state visit by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Mr Trump is quick to say 'I don't know the man'.
As for calls to ban him from visiting the country, he added: 'Well, that's their problem - I could very nicely stay home.'
Mr Trump claimed Mrs May invited him to the UK twice this year during their meeting at the Swiss ski resort.
Downing Street did not confirm the Mail on Sunday's claim that an informal visit in July would be followed by a state visit in October.
