Trump and Buffett both like Coca Cola


Coke has a fan in Trump, but it also has a loyal friend in Warren Buffett. The renowned investor is often caught with a bottle to his lips and has claimed to drink five cans a day.

In an interview Buffett said, 
"I'm one quarter Coca-Cola. If I eat 2,700 calories a day, a quarter of that is Coca-Cola. I drink at least five 12-ounce servings. I do it everyday.”

The breakdown is something like this: one at breakfast, two during the day and two at night, with regular Coke at the office and Cherry Coke at home.

Not only is the 86-year-old’s body powered by the soda, but so is his net worth.

Buffett has been a major shareholder for the last few decades and now owns a 9.3 percent, $17 billion stake in the company. His association is so firmly established that Coca-Cola actually capitalized on it when introducing Cherry Coke in China March 10. Buffett’s face graced a limited edition can to appeal to the nation’s emulating investors.
