In a video published on the White House's official Instagram page, various members of the Trump administration and White House staff weigh in on the viral internet argument.

Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter, opened up the video, declaring that it was "so clearly Laurel!".

'Definitely Laurel, ' Deputy Press Secretary Raj Shah agrees.

But the most memorable appearance had to be that of President Donald Trump.

"I literally just turned all frequencies below 1khz to negative 70 decibels and I still hear 'laurel, '" someone said on Reddit. "Clearly you're getting your information from CNN, cause that's fake news, all I hear is yanny", she replies. On Thursday night he retweeted the White House video.

Regarding the "Yanny" vs. "Laurel" debate, CBS News reported Twitter data shows 47 percent of people hear "Yanny", and 53 percent hear "Laurel".

Even Mike Pence joined the fun, robotically turning to the camera and asking, "Who's Yanny?".

With Green Needle and Brainstorm I can literally hear whatever the hell I choose to hear. At the end of the video, President Trump has the final word: "I hear covfefe", he says, a reference to a cryptic tweet posted from his account in 2017.

'I hear covfefe, ' he declares, referencing the odd tweet he sent out at 3am a year ago that became a viral sensation of its own.
