In a post-arrest interview with the Secret Service, Georgopoulos admitted to having been arrested recently for “threatening family members” and also confessed to stalking his cousin.
While Trump has had three wives over the course of his life, including current wife and First Lady Melania Trump, he is a well known teetotaler and abstains from drinking alcohol.
Last year, Trump explained why he doesn’t drink during a speech he was giving on the opioid crisis.
“I had a brother, Fred,” he said “Great guy, best-looking guy. Best personality, much better than mine.
“But he had a problem, a problem with alcohol. And he would tell me, don’t drink. He was substantially older and I listened to him and I respected. He’s also added, don’t smoke.”
“But he would say it over and over again. And to this day I’ve never had a drink. And, I have no longing for it. I have no interest in it.”
