Growing speculation has many political commentators concerned about the possibility of Donald Trump pressing the nuclear button, but, of late, the US president has been made privy to another button.
Mr Trump has a single button on his desk at the Oval office, which is concealed inside a special wooden box. Enough to give rise to conjecture.
Except, he uses it to order glasses of Coca-Cola.
Trump’s 100 days
This rectangular box is placed on the Resolute Desk which Presidents have used for decades.
President Trump’s habitual liking for the soda was revealed in an interview ahead of his 100th day as president.
“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,” wrote the journalist Julian Pace.
