A mysterious red button which sat between two phones on Donald Trump’s desk for four years has been removed.

It’s been reported that the button, when pressed, summoned a butler carrying a bottle of Diet Coke on a silver platter for Mr Trump.

It’s understood that the button didn’t make the cut during the transition to new president Joe Biden.

Tom Newton Dunn of The Times noted the curious detail.

“When (Tim Shipman) and I interviewed Donald Trump in 2019, we became fascinated by what the little red button did,” he tweeted.

“Eventually Trump pressed it, and a butler swiftly brought in a Diet Coke on a silver platter. It’s gone now.”’

Neither Mr Trump or Mr Biden drink alcohol.

It’s reported that while Mr Biden drinks tea or coffee, Mr Trump drank up to a dozen Diet Cokes a day.
