🧠 TIL about 8645

You may see the number 8645 or 86/45 around for another couple years and I’m here to tell you what it means.


Well before Trump became a household name, an American slang term existed called “86” or “eighty-sixing”. When used as a verb, 86 means getting rid of something, ejecting someone, or refusing service. While no definitive origin for the term is known, there are several possible origins.

When paired with 45, the number of Donald Trump’s presidency, 8645 or 86/45 indicates support for getting rid of President Trump.
