Donald Trump complained that people "are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times" after using the bathroom because water efficiency standards have slowed water flow to a trickle. His nonsensical rant came during a small business event at the White House where he also told those in attendance that he was ordering a federal review of water efficiency standards.

Quote | You have much bigger problems if you need to flush 15 times after using the bathroom.

“People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times as opposed to once. They end up using more water,” Trump said, complaining about water flow in toilets. “You can’t wash your hands practically, there’s so little water comes out of the faucet, and the end result is you leave the faucet on and it takes you much longer to wash your hands, you end up using the same amount of water.”
