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

U.S. Customs and Border Patrol agents stop a group of suspected illegal immigrants passing through a ranch near Edinburg Texas

"I didn't think he was going to call, but (Trump) said that he'd seen a lot of paintings of (himself) and majority he didn't like, but that he liked what I had done", Thomas told Baldwin. He has a similar painting as the one hanging in the White House but with former Democratic presidents.

Maybe you spotted this in President Trump's 60 Minutes segment?

According to the Daily Beast, Thomas admitted that Trump was "hard to paint" due to his skin tone and smile. In the newest version now in the White House, he added Trump and made it look like a bar scene.

Here's to hoping he's right-and that Trump would offer her a Diet Coke. "Honest" Abe Lincoln appears to have water, Reagan has a gaudy cocktail, the others have various beverages.

The painting depicts Trump and other Republican presidents from years past laughing around a table of drinks.

President Donald Trump said that if migrant families fear they will be separated by the United States government, it may deter them from illegally crossing the border from Mexico, suggesting he is reconsidering a policy abandoned in July after widespread public condemnation.

Cole was of course outstanding during the regular season, but he wasn't entirely unfamiliar with first-inning fits and starts. Marwin Gonzalez homered for the Astros , who had won five straight postseason games dating to Game 7 of the 2017 Series.

As Thomas explained to Time, "That will be the first Republican female president and the first Democratic female president". It's populist, and he's not going to be shy that he's the center of attention.

"I was ecstatic", Thomas said.

At the table around him sit, disciple-like, a gallery of ex-Republican presidents, from Lincoln to George W Bush, looking as happy as if they had stepped onto a steamship on the French Riviera. "Legally. And I want them to come in on merit", Trump told reporters at the White House on Saturday.

Whether or not he knows about the small feminist message, Thomas said Trump might have gotten the print through Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who Thomas has painted before.

Now on 60 Minutes: There's less than a month until the mid-term elections.

Trump's choice to hang the picture prominently at the White House, among hundreds of classical or historical works of art, echoes his decision to hang a portrait of himself in the bar at his Florida club Mar-a-Lago - a similarly folksy, if more amateurish, painting of a young Donald Trump in sporting whites titled The Visionary. This is in line with Trump famously saying that he doesn't drink alcohol.
