President Donald Trump has a red button on the resolute desk that summons a butler with a coke whenever he needs it, according to a Sunday report from the Associated Press.
The AP story included the coke story in a much larger article about the president’s accomplishments during his first 100 days in office.
“With the push of a red button placed on the Resolute Desk that presidents have used for decades, a White House butler soon arrived with a Coke for the president,” reporter Julie Pace reported Sunday.
The “red button” symbolically represents the president’s nuclear launch order in modern culture, a perception that former Then-candidate Hillary Clinton used during the 2016 presidential campaign against Trump.
“Do we want his finger anywhere near the button?” Clinton asked repeatedly during her stump speech on the campaign trail.
The president is able to change the function of the button based on his respective needs. Presidents Barack Obama and George W. Bush used the button to call an emergency meeting of top staffers during the course of their administrations.
