No, it doesn't. I don't think that his Coke Zero procedures are the best evidence for that. Many celebrities act in bizarre ways. Look at the backstage demands of many performers, for instance. I used to teach classes of hotel receptionists back in the late 1980s and early 1990s. It was funny listening in on them when they were swapping stories about celebrity behavior at hotels. Nothing is better at bringing the psychopathy out in a psychopath than people whose sole purpose on Earth, in their opinion, is to be there for them, which, of course, for Trump is everybody, and no thing is as good at making it obvious that you are dealing with psychopaths than a presidency.

Bunker Boy's Coke Zero behavior is a minor thing in that context, but his germophobia combined with his utter disregard for the life and health of everybody else is a giveaway.
