A camera shot from President Trump’s interview with CBS’s “60 Minutes” reveals the president decorated the White House with a well-known painting of himself drinking with past GOP presidents.
The painting, “The Republican Club” by Andy Thomas, depicts Trump sharing a drink with former Republican presidents, including Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Abraham Lincoln.

The Daily Beast on Monday reported that Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) gave the print to Trump.
“[Trump] had actually given a me real gracious call to tell me how much he liked it,” Thomas told The Daily Beast. “He was very complimentary. He made a comment that he’d seen a lot of paintings of himself and he rarely liked them.”
The artist added his presidential paintings are “bipartisan.” He also painted a portrait of Democratic presidents playing pool.
“I challenge people to look at the paintings and see if they can figure it out,” he said.
