A photograph of President Donald Trump boarding Air Force One earlier this week has caused a small stir online, according to HuffPost.

A Reuters photographer captured a shot in which a $20 bill was visible hanging out of his pocket. Reuters tweeted the picture Wednesday.

People had questions about the picture, and a reporter asked the president about it on Wednesday, according to The Washington Post.

In response, Trump pulled a wad of cash out of his pocket and held it up for the reporters to see.

“I don’t carry a wallet because I haven’t had to use a credit card in a long time,” Trump explained to reporters, per the Post. “I do like leaving tips to the hotel. I like to carry a little something.”

Trump seemed to find the photo amusing, and said he’d “like a piece of that picture,” according to The Hill.

Meanwhile, Twitter users have been discussing the photo online.
