White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany accidentally revealed President Trump’s private Capital One bank account and routing numbers at Friday’s press briefing.
While announcing that Trump was donating his quarterly paycheck to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), McEnany held up the president’s actual check complete with his banking information.
“The $100,000 check she held up like a prop appeared to be a real check from Capital One, complete with the relevant details. The White House did not immediately respond to a request for comment, but an administration official said mock checks were never used in the briefing,” The New York Times reported on Friday.
Watch the moment, below:
