White House Removes Bill Clinton and George W. Bush Portraits From Entrance Hall

According to the report, the presidential portraits of Clinton and Bush were moved last week to the Old Family Dining Room, a room rarely used or seen by visitors. The relocation also removes the portraits from Trump’s view as he descends from his third-floor private residence to the State Floor. …

In May, reports circulated that Trump will likely refuse to unveil the official portrait of his predecessor and nemesis, Barack Obama. The former Democratic president, who has been more vocally critical of Trump in the past few months, has indicated that he too would gladly skip the ceremony.
