Trump's Plans For an Oval Office Makeover, White House Addition: Figure 1
A rendering of Donald Trump’s re-imagined Oval Office.

Before Donald Trump launched his presidential campaign, he made a fortune in real estate, so it is only fitting that he has plans to make a few renovations to the most famous residence in the country if he is elected president.

Today, UrbanTurf received The Donald’s renovation plans for The White House, which include a gussied-up Oval Office and a residential addition in the mold of Trump’s Las Vegas casino.

The Oval Office makeover includes a new gold-plated aesthetic as well as a reimagining of Michelangelo’s famous Sistine Chapel fresco. Trump plans to replace the standard four chair set-up in the office with a large, semi-circular couch that faces the president’s desk. The addition behind The White House, seen below, was originally much taller before Trump’s architects reminded him of the city’s Height Act.

“With Mr. Trump, you need to think outside the box when it comes to renovations,” project architect Ilé Soo-Yoo said. “And when Mr. Trump wants to go huge, he really means yuge.”

Trump’s addition to the presidential residence would include a ballroom, a hair salon, and a room filled with “Make America Great Again” baseball caps. Plans to build a wall around The White House have been nixed. “Mr. Trump only wants to build one wall during his presidency,” Soo-Yoo said.

Three years ago to the day, UrbanTurf covered Trump’s initial design for the Old Post Office Pavilion, which The Donald endorsed but ultimately toned down. It will be interesting to see if his plans for The White House pass muster beyond today.

    Unreal. If he is elected and this happens, I'm done with DC

    I have noted the date. The worst part is, this doesn't seem unbelievable. My own thought is that he would turn Lafayette park into a piano atrium with waterfall.

    At least when Trump moves into the White House he will bring his own furniture and silverware, unlike Hillary who stole the silverware from Air Force One and antiques from the White House when she last left the place. Trump probably won't even move into the White House since his hotel down the block will offer much great luxury and space.

    Wow, Concerned Citizen certainly illustrates the quote "Beware of zealots, for they have no sense of humor." That said, it would be a relief if Trump decided to live amid the tacky faux-glamour of the hotel that's branded with his name (note: not the same thing as "his hotel") and left the White House alone. Michelle Obama has managed to freshened up its staleness a little. We certainly don't want to go backwards!
