While House Republican leaders and the White House worked furiously to whip up support for the GOP’s health care bill, President Donald Trump was busy tooting his own horn.

Well, a truck’s horn.

Trump climbed into the driver’s seat of a truck on the South lawn of the White House as he spoke with truck drivers and truck company CEOs about health care, according to various reports.

Trump also joked that the media would be “happy” if he fell getting out of the truck, according to one account.

Trump then got into one of the trucks, joked as if he were driving the truck and honked the horn to applause from the crowd.
