On Friday, Trump raised another pressing personal issue that demanded immediate intervention.
“We have a situation where we’re looking very strongly at sinks and showers, and other elements of bathrooms [...] You turn the faucet on […] And you don’t get any water. They take a shower and water comes dripping out”, Trump said, cited by The Hill, during a small business roundtable at the White House.
Trump expresses frustration about water efficiency, says sinks don’t have enough pressure and people have to flush toilets multiple times. He says he has directed the EPA to look at opening up water standards. It’s called rain, he says, referring to states with lots of water. pic.twitter.com/pwvzqULeGB— Jeff Mason (@jeffmason1) December 6, 2019
Trump demonstrated his knowledge by introducing the latest data, although not disclosing the sources that apparently allowed him to stun officials from the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
"People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once. They end up using more water. So EPA is looking at that”, Trump asserted, cited by The Hill.
The US president also said that some bathroom fixtures slow water to a trickle.
“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.
"The new bulb is many times more expensive, and, I hate to say it, it doesn't make you look as good. Of course, being a vain person that's very important to me. It gives you an orange look. I don't want an orange look", Trump said earlier on Friday, cited by The Hill.
