White House renovations underway while president 's away

White House renovations underway while president 's away

The renovations, which were approved during President Barack Obama's administration, will include an overhaul of the White House's heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning system, as well upgrades to the building's IT system, mess hall, and outdoor spaces.

Portions of the West Wing of the White House are undergoing a long-planned renovation this month.

Trump was expected to stay in New Jersey for 17 days, his first extended time away from the White House since taking office in January.

The Oval Office and Situation Room, where the US President meets aides in times of crisis, as well as other offices in the West Wing are among areas being redecorated.

But the players are calm and the club is calm. "It was his opinion but he understood that he maybe needed to apologise to us". Now, I appreciate Danny issued an official apology following his rant about THFC. "Now we move on".

The renovation comes as Trump takes a "working vacation" at his property in Bedminster, N.J. Politico said White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders didn't immediately return requests for comment. The renovation will not only be structural, but cosmetic as well, with plans to change some West Wing's walls and carpets.

"I love the White House, one of the most lovely buildings (homes) I have ever seen", Trump tweeted on August 2.

Workers were also seen touching up steps on the South Lawn - cranes overhead - as carpets were removed from the West Wing.

A major refurbishment is under way in the White House, ordered by US President Donald Trump while he takes an extended holiday.
