She told her 436,000 fans on Twitter: "Donald Trump is making me gain weight.

"I start the day with liquids, but after the morning news, I eat pancakes smothered in maple syrup!"

Streisand, 74, then followed it up with another post with said: "Trump just accused Obama of tapping his phones.

"Time for more pancakes."
