Friday, US President Joe Biden did not make any changes to the interior of the Oval Office. However, it seems that former President Donald Trump's 'button', which was used by him to order Diet Coke, has disappeared.

According to CBS, the former president was a fan of Diet Coke. Press reports indicated that after Trump took office in 2017, he approved of a small wooden box to be placed in his office, which was intended to order the caffeinated beverage.

Social media users circulated photos of Biden in the Oval Office, which was no longer equipped with the red button.

In 2017, a report by the New York Times indicated that Trump consumed excessive cola while he was in his office at the White House.

Followers of social networking sites were divided about the disappearance of the "red button", as a team said that it was due to Biden not consuming soft drinks, a hypothesis inconsistent with a previous report by the Washington Post in which it said that Biden during his run for the presidency, was consuming good quantities of cola.

Other social media users claimed that the disappearance of the button was a desire from Biden to remove all personal items related to his predecessor Trump.
