Donald Trump’s single weirdest belief



President Donald Trump loves golf but he does not believe in exercise to sustain a healthy lifestyle. Instead, the President believes in the battery theory of life force, which means that people are born with a finite amount of energy. CNN’s Chris Cillizza explains what this means as it pertains to the President’s health.
