The size of Donald Trump's hands have long been a source of amusement.

It seems no one can resist cracking a joke about the President's mitts, from 14-year-old boys to British Prime Minister Theresa May.

However, Mr Trump has always insisted that his hands are anything but small - we're not sure why it bothers him so much, but fair enough.

During a trip to a relief shelter in Houston, Trump declared while putting on some gloves that his "hands are too big" - he then proceeded to hand much needed food out to survivors.

This isn't the first time this has happened.

During a separate trip to Naples, Florida, Trump was positioned to hand out hoagies (a big sandwich for those who haven't had the pleasure) to those effected by Hurricane Irma.

However, as he stood behind the table and tried to put on a pair of latex gloves, saying they were "too small".

The report from David Nakamura of the White House press pool reads as follows:

Trump stood behind a silver tin of hoagies, cut in half and wrapped in cellophane.

Melania was near bottled water and Pence near the bananas.

Trump paused to try to put on thin white plastic gloves but struggled. His hands were apparently too, uh, large.

They're too small, Trump said. The glove on his right hand ripped along his thumb, exposing skin.

Here is a GIF of Trump's trouble with said glove.

People were fairly unconvinced and unamused by the continued circus surrounding Trump and his hands. Wouldn't it be more productive to focus on DACA, climate change and trans rights instead?

Others were simply more concerned with his hygiene standards.

According to NY Mag, Trump's self-conscious regard for his hands stems from a feature in Spy Magazine in the 80s where he was referred to as a "short-fingered vulgarian".
