Love it or hate it, there's no arguing that Diet Coke is wildly popular -- depending on the data you consult, it's the second or third most popular soda in America. However, whipping through a 12-pack of DC during one's waking hours is a bit excessive. To put 45's consumption in perspective, a 12-can-a-day habit would put his annual Diet Coke intake at 4,380 cans per year, which altogether amounts to roughly 411 gallons of the caramel-colored fizzy stuff. For comparison, the average American drinks just 58 gallons of water per year.
As the profile describes, Trump frequently "summons" Diet Cokes using a special button throughout the day in the White House, but to plow through so many in a day, he's got to keep up quite a pace. When you consider he's likely awake for 16 or so hours per day (slightly more than the average American), he's finishing about three quarters of a can every 60 minutes.
