President Donald Trump got in the driver’s seat of an 18-wheeler as he welcomed truck drivers and trucking CEOs to the White House to discuss health care on Thursday.

The president took the opportunity to blow the big-rig’s horn, twice.

“No one knows America like truckers know America,” the president said in a video he later posted to Twitter. “Every town, every forest, from border to border, from ocean to ocean.”
