Trump caught with secret bottle of Coke after insisting he was boycotting brand over Georgia voting rights

Donald Trump was pictured drinking his beloved Diet Coke despite calling on supporters to boycott the and over Georgia voting rights.

The ex-president was spotted with a bottle of his favourite soda sitting on his Mar-a-Lago desk in a tweet posted by his former adviser Stephen Miller.

It came just days after Mr Trump called for a boycott of Major League Baseball, Coke and Delta Airlines, who have all protested the new restrictive voting rights law in the state.

The new law, recently signed by Georgia’s Republican Governor Brian Kemp, includes new identification requirements for absentee ballots, limits the use of drop boxes and criminalises giving voters in line water or food.

It has been harshly criticized by Joe Biden and resulted in a strong of lawsuits from civil rights groups.

Major businesses in the state have also added their voices to the widespread criticism of the law, introduced by Republicans after Mr Biden’s win in November and the loss of two US Senate seats in January.

It is the first time since leaving the White House that Mr Trump ha been pictured in his new Florida office.

He was seated behind a desk, which resembles the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office, and the soda appears to have been unsuccessfully hidden behind a telephone.

Mr Miller posted the picture on Monday and described his time with the one-term president as a “terrific meeting.”

Also visible on Mr Trump’s desk is a piece of the metal used to build the US-Mexico border wall that was made into a trophy and presented to him during an April 2019 visit to Calexico, California.

Mr Trump does not appear to have a Diet Coke button on his desk, as he reportedly had while living in the White House.

Journalists have described that during interviews with Mr Trump he pushed the button while at his desk and a butler would brink him a Diet Coke on a silver platter.

There has been no sign of the button in the Oval Office since Joe Biden’s inauguration as president.
