Like many Democrats, Hanks is opposed to the new U.S. leader, a Republican, and he feels it's important for members of the press to do their jobs and take Trump to task for mistakes made during his time in office.

ABC TV's White House correspondent Karen Travers thanked Hanks for the new espresso machine he sent to her and her colleagues on Thursday (02Mar17).

The Oscar winner attached a note, which read: "Keep up the good fight for Truth, Justice, and the American Way. Especially for the Truth part."

It's not the first time Hanks has sent the White House press corps a new espresso machine - the actor did the same thing during George W. Bush and Barack Obama's eight-year administrations.
