Donald Trump says his campaign for the GOP’s 2016 presidential nomination is burning some calories.
“I have lost weight because my events are so exciting,” he said Tuesday, according to People.
“When I’m done I don’t I want to eat,” Trump continued. “I have actually lost 15 pounds on the campaign trail.
“I could see how it could go the other way for some people,” he added in a shot at his presidential rivals. “That’s only because their events are boring.”
Trump said the energy of his large crowds is helping him slim down.
“I never thought about it, but speaking is almost a form of exercise,” the outspoken billionaire said.
“It’s very exhilarating,” Trump said. “When you speak and you’re really going at it, you tend to get so worked up [that] you don’t feel like eating after that.”
