Washington : White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany accidentally revealed President Donald Trump's private bank account and routing numbers while holding up a cheque he made out to the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), it was reported on Saturday.

In a press briefing on Friday, McEnany revealed that the President had chosen to donate $100,000 of his 2020 earnings to the HHS in a bid to "support the efforts being undertaken to confront, contain and combat the coronavirus", reports the Daily Mail.

She then waved around the cheque he had written to the government agency for the cameras.

The Daily Mail report quoted an administration official as saying to The New York Times that mock cheques were never used in the briefing, appearing to confirm that the one McEnany flaunted was legitimate.

In a statement, White House spokesperson Judd Deere said: "Today the President's salary went to help advance new therapies to treat this virus, but leave it to the media to find a shameful reason not to simply report the facts, focusing instead on whether the check is real or not."

However, that didn't stop social media users from poking fun at both McEnany and Trump.

"Harvard Law has some explaining to do," one Twitter user said, wondering how McEnany could have graduated from the prestigious school before making the mistake with the cheque.
