Painting of Trump hanging out with Republican presidents causes outcry

"We're looking at a lot of different things having to do with illegal immigration", he said, again calling on Congress to pass immigration legislation.

Among the revelations of the interview that President Trump just gave to "60 Minutes" is that hanging on the walls of the White House, the president has placed a picture of himself in the company of past Republican presidents.

The world got a glimpse into President Donald Trump's artistic taste during his 60 Minutes interview Sunday.

President Donald Trump said that if migrant families fear they will be separated by the United States government, it may deter them from illegally crossing the border from Mexico, suggesting he is reconsidering a policy abandoned in July after widespread public condemnation.

Titled "The Republican Club", the painting was created by Andy Thomas and given to Trump by U.S. Rep. Darrell Issa.

"I'm not running", he said.

Thomas said that the woman represents the first female president from either party who is walking over to take her place at the table. President Trump said he spoke to former President George W. Bush about Kavanaugh but, when asked by the AP, said he did not thank him for the calls he made to lobby GOP senators.

Many users compared the "faceless woman" in the background to a similar woman standing in the background of the Democrat painting. "He was very complimentary".

So if Republicans do poorly on November 6, their leader will apparently argue that they would have done much worse without his strenuous efforts, not to mention his gi-normous popularity (as measured, exclusively, by Rassmussen, with maybe a few points added).

And President Trump did not back down from derisively nicknaming Daniels "Horseface".

Former Obama chief official White House photographer Pete Souza has published a collection of his Instagram posts which use his photos from the Obama administration to comment on actions by the Trump administration. Although Thomas has painted many political figures in the past, it's his first painting of Trump, according to the Daily Beast.

The good news is that while Trump replaced the Oval Office red drapes with gold ones and hung a massive chandelier to the dining room, the inside of the White House has not been gilded.
