Tom Hanks told the White House press corps to “keep up the fight for truth” in a note included with a new espresso machine.

The 60-year-old actor sent the note Thursday along with a new coffee machine to replace the old one that he sent the reporters in 2010. On the note was an illustration of American troops with a message underneath that read, “Fresh, spirited, American troops flushed with victory and bringing in thousands of hungry, ragged, battle weary, prisoners.” (RELATED: Tom Hanks Said America Will ‘Be Fine’ If Trump Wins [VIDEO])

“To the White House Press Corps. Keep up the good fight for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. Especially for the Truth Part,” Hanks’ note read. (RELATED: Tom Hanks Slams Donald Trump For ‘Locker Room’ Defense)

 

Hanks reportedly bought the first machine for the press corps during President George W. Bush’s administration after he toured the break room and noticed there wasn’t one, according to the Hill.

In 2010, he replaced that one after noticing it was run down following a stop at the White House.

“You know, you are supposed to clean this after every use,” Hanks told reporters at the time.
