WASHINGTON: US President Donald Trump has said that he carries cash in his back pocket as he loves giving tips at the hotels.

His remarks came after one USD 20 bill was seen dangling precariously from Trump's back pocket as he prepared to depart Moffett Field in Mountain View, California on Wednesday.

Trump, in fact, took out a large wad of cash out of the right back pocket of his pants and held it up in front of reporters travelling with him abroad Air Force One.

Trump said he doesn't ​carry a wallet because he hasn't had to 'use a credit card in a long time'. ​

"I haven't used it in a long time,"Trump said when a reporter asked when does he uses that cash. Trump also said that he does not carry a wallet.

"I don't carry a wallet because I haven't had to use a credit card in a long time. I do like leaving tips to the hotel. I like to carry a little something,” he said.

"I'm telling you, maybe a president's not supposed to do it, but I like to leave a tip for the hotel," Trump told the reporters.

Trump then asked for a copy of the picture taken by a photo journalist. "Boy, that's a good picture. Hey, I'd like a piece of that picture," he said.

That’s the Lol Straw

31 Jul, 2017
Christine Teigen Unlike some, Teigen, it seems, knows what exactly enraged the President enough to block her. It was this tweet — “Lollll. No one likes you.” Teigen’s tweet was in response to Trump’s tweet stating, “It’s very sad that Republicans, even some that were carried over the line on my back, do very little to protect their President.” Sharing a screenshot of the message that she has been blocked by Trump, she tweeted, “After 9 years of hating Donald J Trump, telling him ‘lol no one likes you’ was the straw.” Clearly, she hurt his feelings real bad.
