POLITICO decided to explore Trump’s office with the help of four former White House officials. This is the best effort we know to determine the 45th president’s choice to keep his souvenir in his new Florida life-and remarks about how he views his legacy.
Photo of Air Force One in Washington: For a long time, the West Wing of the White House has been hung with many “giant” photos of explosions. This is one of the Air Force One flying over Washington near the Oval and the White House on July 4, 2020, “a tribute to the United States.” Trump paid close attention to his presidential plane, added more TV screens, and ordered a new color scheme to replace the jet’s iconic light blue.
Photo of Marine One at Mount Rushmore: Trump held a July 4 event in Mount Rushmore last year. This photo of his presidential helicopter flying in front of Mount Rushmore commemorates the event. South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem presented Trump with a $1,100 replica of the monument with Trump’s face in the former president, but he seems to be missing here.
newspaper: Before taking the photo, Trump seemed to have been browsing the Wall Street Journal, whose editorial board criticized him for advocating false claims about voter fraud. Trump also issued a statement last month attacking the editor: “The editorial page of the Wall Street Journal continues to deliberately strive for globalist policies, such as bad trade agreements, open borders and endless wars that benefit others. The country has sold out our American workers. They are fighting for the RINOS that seriously hurts the Republican Party. That is their existence, that is their eternal existence. Fortunately, no one cares about the Wall Street Journal editorials anymore.”
table: Although Trump could not take the 141-year-old Resolute desk from the Oval Office, he now has a similar-looking desk that seems to be the Telluride Wood executive desk in “Prostitute Furniture.” The current retail price of the desk is $3,600, but it will not be available until next month.
chair: According to former White House officials, Trump used the same chair in the Oval Office he transferred from New York.
The infamous Sharpie: Trump also has at least one big black sharpie (Sharpie), which he has brandished for years, a thick pen similar to markings, which can write and sign for friends and allies, and sometimes mark important things he doesn’t like. Article and send it to the offending reporter.
Reading glasses: Trump is known for his image awareness, he doesn’t like being seen by people wearing glasses when he is in the office, and few news photographers have taken photos of him wearing his glasses. The New York Times reported in 2019 that Trump often does not tweet when other people are around because he does not want to wear glasses to look at the phone screen. His long-time social media expert Dan Scavino often prints out suggested tweets in large fonts so that Trump can sign them.
Bottle of Coke: Trump, who has long been a fan of diet Coke, appeared to be drinking a half-drunk Coke by the phone, although he urged Americans to boycott Georgia-based Coca-Cola because it criticized Georgia’s new voting restrictions. legal. Trump said in a statement last Saturday: “Boycott Major League Baseball, Coca-Cola, Delta Air Lines, JPMorgan Chase, Viacom CBS, Citigroup, Cisco, UPS and Merck. Until they relax, don’t look back at their products. We can play games better than them.”
A plaque commemorating the boundary wall: The former president has a US-Mexico border wall, which is one of the main elements of his 2016 campaign promises. Trump once promised to build a “beautiful wall”, but during his tenure, only 80 miles of new walls were built out of a total of 452 miles of walls built on his watch. The U.S. Border Patrol plaque praised Trump for “defending the borders of the United States.”
iPhone: Trump likes his iPhone. His most famous habit is to tweet his iPhone at any time of the day to call his friends in the kitchen cabinet. Such calls often annoy his assistants, and their assistants are upset about what he says to his confidant.

wooden box: Trump’s signature and the presidential seal are printed on the top of the box. Although it is not clear what he is packing the box, the former official said it may be where Trump kept his trademark “Sharpes”.
Challenge the coin rack: Challenge coins are coins usually given to recipients by a part or branch of the army, and they represent that part of the army. As president, Trump, who often praises his army assembly, has won countless challenge coins. Trump also displayed these same challenge coins in the Oval Office.
Mug: Trump kept the white cup with the presidential seal.
His own statue: No source knows the origin of Trump’s bust. When asked about Trump’s spokesperson, he did not disclose any details. A former senior White House official said, “This is probably a gift. We will receive a lot of gifts, such as paintings, statues, etc.”
Family photo: Most of these photos are on the table behind the Oval Office. Clockwise: his late father Fred Trump; Trump in a tuxedo; when Trump traveled to the UK in June 2019, his children Eric, Ivanka ( Ivanka and Don Jr.’s wife Melania Trump (Melania Trump) Trump’s late mother Mary Anne McLeod Trump; Trump and an unidentified Others are walking in the west wing colonnade, and there are other unidentified photos. In the middle of the table is Trump and his son Barron in New York, possibly in Trump Tower. A former White House official said that Trump only kept a few photos behind his desk during the first few years of his tenure, but then added more photos in the past 18 months.
Lamps: The former White House official said that based on the decoration of the resort, these lights are likely to be Mar-a-Lago lights.
