Ex-Bodyguard at Trump’s International golf course in Scotland is still owed $130 after being forced to buy the Trump family’s late night McDonald’s order.
Former US President, Donald Trump, is known for his love of fast food, particularly after the stunt go hosting the Clemson Tigers football team at the White House and serving them a buffet of McDonald’s.
However, according to Trump’s ex-Bodyguard, Trump demands a McDonald’s meal on his flights too, favouring ‘two burgers and a chocolate milkshake’.
The ex-bodyguard in question, Kevin McKay, claims working for Trump ruined his life, the stress of the job leading to his divorce, as well as potentially being set up for VAT fraud and being prosecuted with time in prison.
Things first became dodgy when in 2008, McKay was forced to purchase fast food for a six Range Rover strong convoy with 15 security guards out of his own pocket. The family were heading from Trump’s Scottish golf courses to his private jet to fly back to the States.
‘We were driving from Mr. Trump’s estate and just as we got to the Bridge of Don, he asked to stop at McDonald’s so he could buy food for the flight back to New York,’ McKay explained.
‘Mr. Trump didn’t have any UK currency – pounds – so he asked me if I could front him the cash.
‘I said, “Sure” and took everyone’s order – about 20 cheeseburgers and fries with around 10 or 15 Coca Colas. I think Mr. Trump ordered two cheeseburgers with fries and a Diet Coke was his usual order and he always wanted McDonald’s to take with him on the private jet.
‘It cost me about £95 ($130) in total and Mr. Trump told me, “You’ll get it back.”‘
Nevertheless, that was the last McKay ever saw of the money, even over a decade later. He explained that this was a significant amount of money to him, as working for Trump, McKay was earning roughly £2,000 ($2,700) a month.
‘I should have asked him for the money, but I brushed it under the carpet at the time,’ McKay concluded.
Well, you heard it here first, never lend Trump anything as you will never see it again. We have all lent a mate a tenner that somehow never got given back, so perhaps reading about how Trump’s New York properties have had their value slashed will make you feel better.
