Just hours after being sworn in, Trump makes one change to the Oval Office. One he promised to do before. He reinstalled the bust of Winston Churchill. Let’s hope all his promises will be fulfilled like this one. We have faith in him.
Just hours after being sworn in, President Donald Trump reinstalled the bust of former British Prime Minister Winston Churchill back into the Oval Office.
Reporters first noticed the bust in the Oval Office Friday evening just as Trump was signing several executive orders, some of his first acts as president.
The bust was removed by former President Barack Obama shortly after he took office in 2009. Obama replaced it with busts of civil rights icon Martin Luther King Jr. and former President Abraham Lincoln.
The move created a wave of controversy and outrage with conservatives, who alleged that Obama removed the bust to snub the British. Conservative documentary filmmaker Dinesh D’Souza alleged in his documentary “2016: Obama’s America” that Obama removing the bust was further evidence that he hated American and British imperialism.
