Ex-President Donald Trump faces accusations of hypocrisy after he was pictured with what appeared to be a Diet Coke bottle on his desk, days after he urged supporters to boycott Coca-Cola for opposing Georgia’s new voting restrictions.

Twitter users spotted what appeared to be a bottle of Trump’s favorite soda behind the telephone in this photo that former Trump aide Stephen Miller shared to hype a “terrific meeting” with the grinning former president at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida:

There was no sign on the desk of the red button that Trump used to summon staff to bring him a Diet Coke to the Oval Office when he was in the White House.

Trump over the weekend issued a statement demanding boycotts against Coca-Cola and other companies and organizations speaking out against Georgia’s voting restrictions.

“It is finally time for Republicans and Conservatives to fight back — we have more people than they do — by far!” Trump ranted in one of his self-proclaimed “elegant” statements.

Miller’s photo jarred with many on Twitter:

Trump called for a ban on Coke 3 days ago. How is that going? pic.twitter.com/R0Ut4R77SL

Whenever you hear the accusation that someone is not sufficiently respectful of Trump supporters, just remember that no-one holds them in lower esteem than Trump himself.

You mean the former guy. He's no longer in office. Also, he put out a statement that said to boycott Coke, but I guess he meant for "other" people. 😂😂😂 pic.twitter.com/gETfwj2MJ0

I'm surprised he hasn't pulled a page from The West Wing and built a replica of the Oval Office to sleep in. https://t.co/yTLQl9b0cU

Despite Trump’s call to boycott Coca-Cola 48 hours ago, there is a Coke bottle behind the phone on the right side of his desk. https://t.co/KjV0CAizYn

Lazy attempt at hiding the bottle of Coke that he's supposedly boycotting. Appearances over reality, as usual. https://t.co/DMl0ROgOoN
