a young boy challenged Trump to go ‘vegan’ for one month for charity in 2020, according to a new book by former White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham.
“On another occasion around the new year (in 2020), a young boy started publicly challenging Trump to go vegan in TV ads and on highway billboards,” Grisham writes in her book, “I’ll Take Your Questions Now,” according to an excerpt published Friday by Politico. “If the president agreed, the boy said, the charity he represented would donate $1 million to veterans. I was communications director at the time and I playfully asked the president if he would ever consider doing that, since the challenge would raise a lot of money for a good cause. I knew he loved his steaks and cheeseburgers, but one month didn’t seem that long.”
According to Grisham, Trump rejected the challenge.
“No, no. It messes with your body chemistry, your brain. And if I lose even one brain cell, we’re f*cked.” Trump said.
a 9-year-old activist named Vegan Evan, did actually challenge Trump to go ‘vegan’ for one month for charity in 2019. Insider reported at the time
“I think that veganism is a gift and it’s great to give that gift to people so they can be healthier and feel better, not hurt animals, and not destroy the planet,” Vegan Evan said.
