Say what you will about Trump's presidency, his ability to make a deal is legendary. Now Evan, a nine-year-old boy is offering Trump a deal of his own. Evan issues the challenge that President Trump help Make America Healthy Again. If the president can go vegan throughout the month of January, Evan's company, Animal Hero Kids and Million Dollar Vegan, is pledging $1 million for veterans.
In his letter, Evan describes the health benefits to a vegan lifestyle, including decreased risk of heart disease and obesity, and type 2 diabetes. Cardiovascular experts also suggest a plant-based diet does wonders for your overall heart health and even helps your body handle stress better.
Despite a childhood without pizza and ice cream, Evan says he loves everything about being vegan. He says it helps him wake up every day, and know he is doing his part for the planet, and the animals. And he is full of energy. He even has his own merch online, with hats and caps, and even a guidebook to help other young vegans. He's promised that if President Trump can take up the challenge, he and Million Dollar Vegan would love to provide plant-based alternatives to all Trump's favorite foods, delivered right to the White House!
No word on whether President Trump will take up the challenge yet. We'll keep you posted!
