'Tacky' painting of Trump drinking with other presidents hangs in White House

But some Trump administration officials have said the policy, under which some 2,600 children were separated from their parents, was needed to secure the border and deter illegal immigration.

The painting can be seen hanging on the wall in a screengrab of Trump's recent interview with "60 Minutes," flagged by Independent Journal Review editor Josh Billinson. The sit down was conducted in the Oval Office, where they discussed a number of topics from his Supreme Curt pick Brett Kavanaugh to Russia's meddling in the 2016 election, and he managed to only pull an "I'm president and you're not" one time. "To find out it's actually hanging is really a treat". On the call, Trump asked him what he thought of his job so far as president and admitted he didn't like many portraits that have been painted of him. "He was very complimentary".

In both paintings, the vague figure of a suited woman is approaching the table.

The painting features a trim Trump, sharing drinks with - Trump's beverage is presumably a soda - former Presidents Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Gerald Ford, Ronald Reagan, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.

And sitting court at the center of the table is a beaming, noticeably slimmed-down Trump, with his ever-present class of Diet Coke sitting in front of him.

Thomas told The Daily Beast that Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) gave the artwork to the president.

He also found it hard to give the president a "genuine smile" - and had to start from scratch after his first try seemed off.

"That will be the first Republican female president and the first Democratic female president", Thomas told Time. "I had to find a photo where it looked like he's actually heard something amusing so it looks like a genuine smile".
