Donald Trump plays with a semi-truck in the White House parking lot

Donald Trump met with truckers at the White House on Thursday, and they let him get behind the wheel of one of the big rigs himself.

Videos show the president climbing into the cab and honking the horn on one of the semi trucks parked on the South Lawn. He then pretended to drive away.

Trump was pictured afterward sitting at a desk and wearing an "I <3 Trucks" button.
