Trump has a button on his desk for ordering Coca-Cola

Amid the phones, pens and executive orders that land on Donald Trump's desk is something you might not expect.

According to the Associated Press, the president has a button that summons a butler, and he often uses it to order a Coca-Cola.

"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," AP reports.

Trump isn't the first president to use the button to summon a butler. In fact, in one photo of President Obama and then-House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, you can spot the button right on the table.

There's no word on what Obama had the butler bring to him, but we assume it was probably almonds.
