Steven Mnuchin claimed today that President Donald Trump has “perfect genes.” During a sit-down interview with Axios co-founder Mike Allen, the treasury secretary marveled at how his boss has “more stamina than anyone I’ve ever met… it’s unbelievable… he’s constantly doing things.”
Referencing Trump’s known affinity for fast food, Allen asked how that’s possible given his poor eating habits. Mnuchin replied: “He’s got perfect genes.” Asked to elaborate, Mnuchin said, “He’s got perfect genes. He’s got incredible energy, okay? And he’s unbelievably healthy.” The audience nervously laughed after a brief pause on both replies.
