President Trump's Claim About McDonald's Is Hair-Raising

McDonald's (NYSE: MCD) received a light-hearted "endorsement" from President Donald Trump yesterday when he retweeted a tweet about a supposed link between a chemical found in french fries and hair-loss prevention. Trump is riffing off both his own enjoyment of quick-service restaurant food and an earlier tweet from Ari Fleischer, one-time press secretary for former President George W. Bush. Fleischer, who is bald, retweeted an ABC 7 Eyewitness News headline, "Study reveals chemical in McDonald's fries may be cure for baldness," adding, "It doesn't work."
