Phone of the Day: Panasonic Digital Office KX-DT333 Phone with President Elect Donald Trump Calling
Oddly enough, I received a call on my office phone today from newly elected Trump.  When I answered the call, I was greeted with fast busy reorder tone.   Very interesting that his automated system called me on 11/09/16, the day AFTER the 11/08/16 election.

Phones of the Day: The US Presidential Candidates Telephones
Well our prospective candidates do have one thing in common. They both use Avaya phones on their desks.
