Seattle, WA. – en Volve news political sources in the North West have reported that a number of Federal buildings are still ‘missing’ portraits of the President and Vice-President. Our sources confirm that portraits of former President Barak Obama and Vice-President Biden were once proudly displayed, but have noticed that portraits of Trump and Pence have not been hung in the place where the former once were.
When Obama took office in 2009, the federal government printed more than 130,000 official photographs of Obama and then-Vice President Joe Biden, many of which were hung in over 7,000 federal installations around the world. Some were made available for the public to purchase, according to the federal agency that printed them, now known as the U.S. Government Publishing Office.
Several Federal buildings are still waiting to receive an official portrait, and although many administrations address portraits soon after inauguration, it isn’t uncommon for some Presidents to delay. Former President Bill Clinton delayed his portraits nearly one year into office. However, some local governments have taken it upon themselves to obtain or produce digital copies of President Trump and Vice-President Pence until official pictures can be received.
Our source inquired with a property rep. at one federal building in which they do regular business and was told that their ‘particular policy’ was to only display ‘official portraits.’
Seems oddly convenient that more liberal cities would delay putting forth any effort to display President Trump’s image, even if only in temporary.
