The White House Correspondents' Association has warned journalists not to take “souvenirs” from the US president's plane. These include pillowcases, plates and cutlery which, according to the BBC, disappeared from the media section of Air Force One.

Pillowcases, plates or cutlery – such “souvenirs” are not allowed to be taken from journalists from the presidential plane Air Force One. The White House Correspondents' Association reminded colleagues of this when it turned out that the part of the US president's machine intended for the press was missing equipment.
