While President Donald Trump ran as a man of the people, he’s rich and can’t be blamed for not knowing exactly how the average person dumps.

At a roundtable on cutting red tape on Friday, Trump was discussing Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations he wanted to roll back when he dropped this line about water regulations and what seems to be his opinion on environmental friendly standards like low-flow toilets.

“People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once. They end up using more water. EPA is looking at that very strongly at my suggestion,” he said.

Either the president isn’t exactly aware of how low-flow toilets work, or he has bowel movements greater than any man.

Which is it?

Fifteen times! That’s a lot!
