Trump isnt planning to unveil Obamas presidential portrait, breaking a 40-year tradition
A 40-year long White House tradition may be coming to an end, as President Donald Trump reportedly wont be unveiling his predecessors presidential portrait. NBC News reported on Tuesday that Trump has no plans to hold a ceremony at the White House for the unveiling of Barack Obamas portrait. It is a tradition for first-term presidents to host a ceremony in the East Room to unveil the presidential portrait of their immediate predecessor. According to people familiar with the matter, Obama is not expected to attend a portrait unveiling before the end of Trumps first term, NBC News reports. It is unclear if Obama would return to the White House for a portrait ceremony during Trumps second term if he wins reelection.
