Trump reportedly asked world leaders to contact him directly on his cellphone, raising questions about security. The request, which poses a risk of having the conversations of the U.S. president intercepted, breaks with diplomatic protocol.

Trump also did a parody of the song in an appearance on "Saturday Night Live" during his campaign, which many were quick to share.
Most jokes appeared to be lighthearted pop-culture references.
