Trump complains low-flow toilets are flush with problems

While the president said the EPA was looking at the standards, a review of the WaterSense program was mandated under 2018 legislation passed by Congress that said the agency should look at any regulations adopted before 2012.

"We have a situation where we're looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms", Trump told a meeting of small business leaders at the White House. "They take a shower and water comes dripping out", Trump added.

"You can't wash your hands practically, there's so little water coming out of the faucet", Trump said. "People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once".

The tweet came in response to a CNN report Friday evening saying that Trump still uses his personal device to make calls in spite of warnings from staffers about the threat of foreign surveillance.


Believe me, a guy from Queens knows Flushing.

The EPA has long helped consumers go beyond federal water conservation standards.

Apparently Trump's view does not agree with the EPA. Some Americans at the time reacted to the new regulation by smuggling toilets from Canada that would use more water to flush.

Unlike when talking about the toilets, Trump was clearly joking as he said: "So we'll have to change those bulbs in at least a couple rooms where I am in the White House".


"Being a vain person, that's really important to me", he said.

Trump has similarly complained about light bulb energy efficiency requirements imposed under President Barack Obama, and the administration announced earlier this fall it would roll back the rules.

So CNN thinks it's newsworthy that Trump is actually using a cell phone the government gave him to use? "Right now the cars are made out of papier-mache, and ours are actually, we allow steel content", he said. He has claimed that they create "bird graveyards" and the noise they produce "causes cancer."
