Trump Regularly Tried To Have Secret Service Agents Removed For Being Too 'Fat', New Book Claims

Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post reporter Carol Leonnig with colleague Philip Rucker wrote a book called A Very Stable Genius: Donald J Trump's Testing of America, where they investigated the last year of the 45th President's term.

The book is a follow-up to their best-selling book A Very Stable Genius that covered the first three years of Trump in the White House.

The Guardian took a close look at the new book and highlighted a few important moments in Trump's West Wing.

What stuck out to many in the numerous quotes from former President Donald Trump were his comments about the size of various Secret Service agents.

The Guardian reported:

"[Leonnig] says the President did repeatedly seek to remove Secret Service staff he deemed to be overweight or too short for the job."

In a quote from the book, Trump said:

"I want these fat guys off my detail."
"How are they going to protect me and my family if they can't run down the street?"

Trump was not a fan of the first book and is unlikely to like the second.

The Guardian captured this tweet about the first book before Trump's account was suspended:

"All for the purpose of demeaning and belittling a President who is getting great things done for our Country, at a record clip".

Twitter had a field day with Trump's remarks about the fitness of Secret Service agents.













Regardless, Trump probably won't be taking offense to these tweets, since he is no longer allowed on the platform.

After all, how sad would it be for someone to monitor a social media platform they aren't even on?
