President Trump’s longtime aide and former bodyguard Keith Schiller used to go to McDonald’s for Trump when the White House chefs couldn’t get his burger just right, Politico reported Tuesday.

Schiller, who left the White House earlier this fall, reportedly used to make secret runs to the McDonald’s on New York Avenue in D.C. to pick up a quarter-pounder with cheese, no pickles and extra ketchup, along with a fried apple pie, for the president.

{mosads}Schiller’s McDonald’s runs for Trump traced back to the campaign, when he would reportedly stop by a location near the Marine Air Terminal in Queens while Trump waited in his limo.

Trump’s morning order was often an Egg McMuffin, while he opted for two quarter-pounders and a large order of fries later in the day, according to Politico.

Trump’s predilection for McDonald’s has been reported before — he celebrated clinching the Republican presidential nomination in May with McDonald’s and a Diet Coke.

Schiller, who had worked for Trump in New York since at least 1999, left the White House in September amid reports he was unhappy in the position.

Chief of staff John Kelly had reportedly reduced Schiller’s access to Trump, and his salary took a significant hit at the White House compared to his paychecks from the Trump Organization.

The House Intelligence Committee will question Schiller on Tuesday afternoon, likely about an infamous dossier that linked Trump to Russia and about Trump’s firing of former FBI Director James Comey.
