White House leaks reveal Donald Trump's request for softer towels and short notes

Donald Trump might appear to be a hard-nosed man when it comes to running the United States, but it's been revealed he prefers the softer things in life.

Take for example the towels in the Air Force One bathroom, which Trump has complained about being too rough, according to The Huffington Post.

Softer towels are just the beginning of Trump's bizarre requests, which have been leaked by an anonymous White House aide.

Trump isn't one for reading longer notes, so requests that all his briefing materials are condensed down into a single page with bullet points, however there must be no more than nine per page.

It's not to say the president won't partake in his own research, but the problem solving methods he goes through was raised by the White House insider.

Confused about the strength of the US dollar, Trump made a call to one of his men to find out more information about the economy.

The only problem was he called his national security adviser, Lieutenant General Michael Flynn.

Flynn, who joined the military in 1981 and served as the director of the Defense Intelligence Agency from 2012 until his retirement in 2014, said it wasn't his area of expertise and told Trump to talk with an economist.

It was noted that Trump placed this call at 3am, although neither Flynn or the White House confirmed the call's time.

While leaks from within the White House are not uncommon for any president, the flood of rumours within Trump's first month has been surprising.

Earlier this week Trump's press secretary Sean Spicer had to deny reports from a New York Times article that said Trump retires upstairs to his bathrobe at 6:30pm "to recharge, vent and intermittently use Twitter".
