When @ShippersUnbound (Tim Shipman) and I interviewed Donald Trump in 2019, we became fascinated by what the little red button did. Eventually, Trump pressed it, and a butler swiftly brought in a Diet Coke on a silver platter. It’s gone now,”. to proof himself, Dunn has also tweeted photo evidence of the button's disappearance.

Is this a joke? It has to be - why wouldn't he just have a mini-fridge?— Mario (@Marios_TL) January 21, 2021
I love the Diet Coke button. It just meant that President Trump is a normal human being that's not trying to be above everybody.— Jeanie Stanley (@JeanieStanley62) January 21, 2021
