The Veterans’ Affairs blog posts guidance for VA facilities in regards to the Presidential Portraits;
By direction of the secretary, VA facilities have been instructed to temporarily display an image from the White House’s website until an official portrait of President Trump is released.
All VA facilities have been directed to download and print photos of both the president and Secretary Shulkin, and every facility is expected to have them appropriately displayed immediately. The president’s photo, while not his official portrait, is currently used by the White House on its website and social media platforms. Once VA receives the official photo of President Trump, facilities will replace the temporary version.
I happened to have an orderly room when President Clinton took office on January 20, 1993 and we had his portrait ready to hang weeks before the inauguration and at the moment he took the oath of office I replaced the portrait of GHW Bush with William Jefferson Clinton’s portrait. So what’s the hold up, VA?
The President really needs a less angry portrait as his official picture, though.
