President Donald Trump made a brazen claim about how many times it takes to flush a toilet that had people wondering about the commander-in-chief's experiences when sitting on his throne.
"People are flushing toilets ten times, fifteen times -- as opposed to once," Trump claimed while arguing against water conservation efficiency standards.
Here's Trump saying that he's heard from many people complaining about "flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times." https://t.co/75HXYcH4xq— Aaron Rupar (@Aaron Rupar) 1575664654.0
The president's claim did not match the personal experiences of many Twitter users, who questioned where Trump had gotten his information on the necessity of double-digit flushing.
Here's some of what people said.
