Despite his grand wealth and position as the president of the United States, Donald Trump is allegedly envious of the Kuwaiti Emir for his bigger plane.

The president of the United States is allegedly jealous of Kuwait's Emir Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Sabah for his "bigger" private jet, reports suggest.

Trump, who owns an aircraft quite poignantly, and expectedly named "The Trump", complained that al-Sabah's aircraft is some 100ft longer than his own, according to Politico.

The comments were allegedly made to congressional delegations from New York and New Jersey after a meeting with the Kuwaiti leader in Washington earlier this week.

President Trump, a billionaire businessman owns a private jet that hosts a dining room, a large TV screen, a master bedroom, a guest bedroom and a bathroom, according to CNN.

The aircraft also boasts the golden "Trump" logo.

"The Trump" (the plane) is one of the eight most expensive aircrafts in the world, with a price of $100 million. It is known to be one of the fastest aircrafts in the world, flying at 500mph for a period of 16 hours.

But unfortunately for Trump and unlike conventional aircrafts which can accommodate up to 200 people, "The Trump" is only capable of accommodating 43 people.
