U.S. President Donald Trump said he was a stable genius and that he eats good quality food.
When asked by Britain’s ITV about his health and some perceptions that he was insane and physically unfit, Trump said: “I am a stable genius.”
When asked about eating burgers and drinking Coke, Trump said: “I eat fine food, really from some of the finest chefs in the world, I eat healthy food, I also have some of that food on occasion… I think I eat actually quite well.”
He said he would consider staying in the Paris climate accord but that it would have to be a good deal for the United States.

Corey Lewandowski wilts after CNN host nails him for serial dishonesty: ‘I’m as honest as I can be!’
Trump lackey Corey Lewandowski appeared on CNN Wednesday one day after he admitted to regularly telling lies during media appearances -- and host Alisyn Camerota gave him a thorough grilling.
During the interview, Camerota played Lewandowski a clip of himself telling the House Judiciary Committee that he is under no obligation to be honest when he appears on cable news shows.
Lewandowski responded to this by angrily ranting about former FBI officials James Comey and Andrew McCabe, but Camerota wouldn't let him off the hook.
"Corey, when do you lie?" she asked him. "Are you lying now, for instance?"
Trump’s Electoral College win was no fluke — and is likely to happen again: new study
Republicans are expected to win 65 percent of close presidential races in which they lose the popular vote as a result of the Electoral College and the blue-state concentration of Democrats, according to a new working paper by the National Bureau of Economic Research.
Researchers from the University of Texas at Austin looked at the probability of “inversions” in presidential elections, where the popular-vote winner loses the electoral vote. These inversions happened in 2000 and 2016 and twice in the 1800s, meaning that the candidate with the most votes has lost 8 percent of the time in the last 200 years.
Democrats are finally advancing impeachment — but Pelosi is still reluctant: report
Democrats have finally begun an official impeachment inquiry into President Donald Trump. And a big reason for that is that impeachment backers have swayed the most critical ally of all: Rep. Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.), the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee — one of the House's key investigative bodies and the one responsible for debating articles of impeachment.
According to Politico, one person is still not sold on impeachment, however: House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA).
Pelosi recently fumed to members of her caucus that the Judiciary Committee is moving too fast and is laying out a roadmap to impeachment without having whipped the votes to do it. "Feel free to leak this," she said.
