Trump won't accept blame if GOP loses House to Dems

  • President Donald Trump talks with reporters as he reviews border wall prototypes in San Diego

The Republican Club, by artist Andy Thomas, was in the background as Mr Trump conducted a recent interview with 60 Minutes.

Andy Thomas' painting depicts Trump sitting around a table with his BFFs: Richard Nixon, Dwight Eisenhower, the Bushes, Teddy Roosevelt, Gerald Ford, and...

The world's most delusional man has pretty much topped all his other self-aggrandizing feats with this: a painting of Trump sat down with former Republican presidents of years gone by, just enjoying a drink and a chinwag.

US President Donald Trump has said that he wants people with merit, who can help, to enter the country and not sneak inside the border illegally.

Far from taking even the smallest steps toward mitigating carbon emissions and developing a clean energy system that is necessary to avert planetary catastrophe, Trump has worked relentlessly during his first two years in office to free massive oil and gas companies to unleash risky pollutants at home while undermining global efforts to confront the climate crisis.

The artist was thrilled to see his work hung in the White House, and was even more honored to receive a call from the president to thank him for his work. "Like literally zero. Some of the people I've endorsed have gone up 40 and 50 points just on the endorsement".

USA 'punished' if Saudi arms sale halted over Khashoggi
Cengiz waits for him outside for four hours, but he never comes out and is told by consulate staff that he left out a back door. Pompeo landed in Riyadh on Tuesday morning and was to immediately meet the king over the crisis surrounding Khashoggi.

"He had actually given a me real gracious call to tell me how much he liked it", Thomas said.

"We have people trying to come in like never before", Trump told reporters as he departed the White House on Saturday for a campaign rally in Richmond, Kentucky. He also said the president is a "very subtle person to paint", and said Trump has "different looks and different profiles".

Interested in Donald Trump?

But Thomas' attention to detail in the painting is commendable. Another portrait shows Democratic presidents playing pool. He painted "The Republican Club", which features the current president and his GOP predecessors and which is hanging in the White House.

Thomas said Trump's smile was particularly hard to create, because he wanted it to look genuine.

On the ongoing Russian Federation investigation, President Trump defended his son Donald Trump Jr. for a Trump Tower meeting with a Kremlin-connected lawyer offering damaging information about Democrat Hillary Clinton.
