Trump Breaking White House Tradition of Unveiling Presidential Portraits

May 20, 2020

In this Friday, Jan. 20, 2017, file photo, President Donald Trump talks with former President Barack Obama on Capitol Hill in Washington, prior to Obama’s departure to Andrews Air Force Base, Md. Trump relentlessly congratulates himself for the healthy state of the U.S. economy. But in the year since Trump’s inauguration, most analysts tend to agree on this: The economy remains essentially the same sturdy one he inherited from Obama. (Rob Carr/Pool Photo via AP, File)

Is this another attempt at diverting attention from the pandemic? Is it jealousy? Is it racism?

President Trump is breaking a 40 year tradition by refusing to unveil portraits of Barack and Michelle Obama in the White House. Portrait unveiling has always crossed party lines where current the current president welcomes their predecessor for the ceremony. Instead, Trump is pushing and “Obamagate” narrative claiming Obama “committed the biggest political crime in American history.”
