Piers Morgan has revealed the fascinating reason why Donald Trump had a piece of paper covering his glass of water during their recent interview

He said: ‘One woman who came in, working for the White House for years – she said she’s here for the presidential water – it’s my job to supply the water.’

Dubbing it the ‘new Watergate’, Morgan continued and said the dark haired woman returned shortly after with a jug of water and carefully poured a glass for the Trump.

‘She gets a glass and pours a glass of the presidential water in and then she produces a presidential seal napkin and a presidential seal cover – she then placed them [over the water].’ 

Cheekily asking whether he too could have some presidential seals, Morgan added that he had been rebuffed and told they were only for the US leader.

Quized on whether they were used because Trump is a renowned germophobe,  Morgan elaborated: ‘It happens for every president – it’s all about the president protected. 

‘From germs that might incapacitate him – but predominantly from being poisoned.’

Viewers were intrigued by the President’s drinking habits, with several pointing out that the renowned germaphobe had the white cover on his glass of water.

A bemused Graeme Demianyk‏ posted an image of the water with the caption : ‘Trump’s glass of water with paper cover #TrumpMorgan.’

And another view wrote: ‘He’s covered the top of his water glass with the paper coaster thing. That is proper paranoid. Does he think Piers is going to lace his drink?’

Usually mild-mannered Bake Off host Sue Perkins was rather more direct, firing off a x-rated tweet which read: ‘I’d rather d***** with a hedgehog than listen to another second of this circle-w*** #TrumpMorgan.’

In the wide-ranging interview, Mr Trump was also questioned over anger about the invitation extended to him by Prime Minister Theresa May on behalf of the Queen.

Mr Trump said: ‘I think I’m very popular in your country.’

Morgan interjects: ‘Let’s not be too hasty Mr President.’

Mr Trump went on: ‘I know but I believe that, I really do. I get so much fan mail from people in your country.

‘They love my sense of security, they love what I’m saying about many different things.

‘We get tremendous support from people in the UK.’

Asked about opposition to his state visit by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, Mr Trump is quick to say ‘I don’t know the man’.

As for calls to ban him from visiting the country, he added: ‘Well, that’s their problem – I could very nicely stay home.’

Mr Trump claimed Mrs May invited him to the UK twice this year during their meeting at the Swiss ski resort.

Downing Street did not confirm the Mail on Sunday’s claim that an informal visit in July would be followed by a state visit in October.

A Number 10 source said: ‘An invitation has been extended and accepted, and details will be set out in due course.’
