President Donald Trump told reporters on Friday "we're looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms," including low flow toilets.
"People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once. They end up using more water. So, EPA is looking at that very strongly, at my suggestion," he said, referring to the Environmental Protection Agency.

Trump made the comments at a White House roundtable on small business and red tape reduction, where he complained about modern bathrooms.
"We have a situation where we're looking very strongly at sinks and showers and other elements of bathrooms where you turn the faucet on, in areas where there's tremendous amounts of water, where the water rushes out to sea because you could never handle it, and you don't get any water. You turn on the faucet; you don't get any water. They take a shower and water comes dripping out. It's dripping out — very quietly dripping out," he told reporters.
"You go into a new building or a new house or a new home, and they have standards, 'Oh, you don’t get water.' 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," he continued.
"So we're looking at, very seriously, at opening up the standard. And there may be some areas where we'll go the other route — desert areas But for the most part, you have many states where they have so much water that it comes down — it's called rain — that they don't know, they don't know what to do with it. So we're going to be opening up that, I believe. And we're looking at changing the standards very soon."

Right up there with the all-time great presidential quotes, you know?


"Four score and seven years ago, our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal." - Lincoln


"But for the most part, you have many states where they have so much water that it comes down — it's called rain." - Trump

Some more Trumpisms:

“I’m speaking with myself, number one, because I have a very good brain and I’ve said a lot of things."

“I caught the swamp. I caught them all."

“I have the best words.” 

“Despite the constant negative press covfefe.”

No, which is why I don't understand Trump wanting to waste even more water.

He's saying that as excuses for why he wants to get rid of regulations that say you have to have low-flow toilets, etc. He's arguing that the old high-flow stuff was actually saving more water, because people didn't flush 10 to 15 times.

Now I don't know how big of a shit one makes that you have to make to require 10 to 15 flushes. That's everyone's personal business. I'm just saying, I've never need more than two.

That's a lie. Once I needed three. I feel better for admitting that.

He can't do anything right for people who aren't Vladimir Putin.

Is that a reference to Trump's hiring prostitutes to piss on the bed, in The Ritz-Carlton-Moscow?

I reckon the EPA should have a look into what that thing is growing on Donald Trump's head..

He's not very bright, but low flow toilets are a pain in the ass. I generally have to flush them twice, especially after Mexican food.
