Trump Refuses to Hang Obama’s Portrait in White House Until He is Out of Office

President Donald Trump angered Black Americans when he refused to hang former President Barack Obama’s portrait in the White House.

Trump is departing from the tradition of unveiling his predecessor’s portrait and hanging it in the White House.

Trump is reportedly planning to skip the White House portrait ceremony, where the current president traditionally hangs up a portrait of his predecessor in the East Room.

According to NBC News, Obama is not interested in attending the ceremony while Trump is occupying the White House. So Obama’s portrait unveiling will have to wait until 2025 — when Trump is out of office.

The tradition was established by former Presidents Gerald Ford and Jimmy Carter.
