President Trump speaks during a small business roundtable on Friday, Dec. 6 in Washington. He also ordered a federal review of water efficiency standards in bathroom fixtures, leading #ToiletGate to trend online.
President Trump is taking "no obstruction" very seriously. But he has continued to call people on a number he held since before his time in the White House, including making calls from that number in the last several weeks, people familiar with those calls say.
President Donald Trump said on Friday he has directed his environmental regulators to find answers to what he considers a big problem - water-conserving showers, faucets and toilets that restrict their flow to a dribble.
"You go into a new building, a new house or a new home and they have standards and you don't get water, " he said.
This according to several current and former United States officials who say he still uses his old cell phone rather than White House secured lines.
"We're looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms where you turn the faucet", he said.
"You can't wash your hands practically, there's so little water comes out of the faucet, and the end result is you leave the faucet on and it takes you much longer to wash your hands, you end up using the same amount of water", Trump lamented. Of course, being a vain person that's very important to me.
While desert areas may need water conservation, he said, "for the most part you have many states where they have so much water that comes down - it's called rain - that they don't know what to do with it". "It gives you an orange look, I don't want an orange look". "So the EPA is looking at this very strongly", Trump reassured the nation's stressed-out flushers.
Reuters reporter Jeff Mason tweeted a photo of the most underrated aspect of any Trump press spray: the guests and admin officials who have to sit there with a straight face and pretend Grandpa is making sense.
