DC news, Washington news.

As reporters took first photos of the new US President Joe Biden signing executive orders in the Oval Office, the public had a glimpse of the stark makeover it underwent Wednesday.

The 46th President of the United States removed Winston Churchill’s bust and replaced it with that of Union Leader Cesar Chavez.

Biden also got rid of Trump’s beloved portrait featuring former President Andrew Jackson and hung those of Franklin D. Roosevelt, Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Alexander Hamilton.

  • Biden declines to talk about Trump’s letter at the moment but insists it was ‘very generous’
  • The doting dad didn’t miss carefully place pictures of his family members including that of late son Beau Biden.

    Also behind the Resolute Desk were photos of Pope Francis, mom, wife, live children, and grandchildren.

    “It was important for President Biden to walk into the Oval that looked like America and started to show the landscape of who he is going to be as a president,” Oval Office operations deputy director Ashley Williams.

    “It also shows that differences of opinion, expressed within the guardrails of the Republic, are essential to democracy.”
