President Trump is known for his signature issues of illegal immigration and trade. But on Friday, Trump said he wanted to tackle a more domestic issue: toilets.

Trump said Americans are having to flush their toilets too many times, instead of just once and that water efficiency standards are the culprit. 

"People are flushing toilets 10 times, 15 times, as opposed to once; they end up using more water," Trump said at a White House meeting. "So the EPA is looking very strongly at that, at my suggestion."

The Energy Policy Act of 1992 limits newly constructed toilets to 1.6 gallons a flush.

"You go into a new building, new house, a new home, and they have standards where you don't get water, and you can't wash your hands practically, there's so little water,” Trump then added. 

Trump also claimed again that environmentally friendly lightbulbs "give you an orange look."

"I hate to say it, it doesn't make you look as good. Of course, being a vain person that's very important to me," Trump said, with audible chuckles in the room. 

There were many opinions shared on social media.

"Pres. Trump announcing he wants to rethink toilet regulations might be the moment when a metaphor for where we are as a nation crosses over into the literal," said former CBS News anchor Dan Rather. 

"The President is wrong about toilets. They used to be bad but now they are good because of innovations that make them work well with less water," New York magazine reporter Josh Barro argues in response to Trump's comments. 

"Reading the transcripts of Trump's press conferences this week is really disturbing. Not only the toilets and lightbulbs ranting, but also at NATO. No wonder the leaders of France, U.K., and Canada are laughing at him. We are at a dangerous time for our country and democracy," writer Amy Siskind said.
