President Trump often has his finger on the button in the Oval Office — but for soda, not nuclear strikes.
In an interview with The Associated Press, Trump revealed the purpose of a "red button" on his desk, which apparently is used to summon a butler with a Coke for the president.
“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," the AP reported.
The news was met with jokes on social media and television. Stephen Colbert, host of CBS's "The Late Show," joked that Trump was "turning the Oval Office into an 8-year-old’s drawing of a dream treehouse."
Trump also mentioned the button during an interview with the Financial Times in the Oval Office.
When a reporter asked Trump whether it was the "nuclear button," he pressed it to order some Cokes, then joked, “Everyone does get a little nervous when I press that button.”
