President-elect Donald Trump won the presidency and will be inaugurated in 2017, however he may have to wait until 2018 before he can set up “shop” in the historical oval office.
A former Bush administration adviser, Karl Rove, said that major security upgrades have been scheduled for the first quarter and that it will put the oval office out of commission for up to a year. If this happens, Trump may have to work out of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building across the street – where President Richard Nixon worked once and made some of those infamous secret recordings that ultimately led him to impeachment.
Did Obama schedule these renovations now to impede Trump’s arrival?
‘President Obama could have told the Secret Service, “I know you want to modernize the Oval Office with security enhancements – literally strip it down to the bare walls and build it back up so we’ve got bullet proof glass and so forth and so on, security arrangements in it, in my last year in office,”‘ Rove said.
‘But Instead he said, “Why don’t you do that [with] whoever comes next so the president of the United States, President Trump, my understanding is, will spend most of his first year using Richard Nixon’s old office in the Old Executive Office Building across executive drive and up the Navy steps.”
Looks to us that this was deliberate, almost something Joe Biden would do according to some of the famous internet memes floating around. Let us know what you think on our Facebook page!
