Tweeted photo shows parts of White House cleared out for renovations

With President Trump out of D.C. for his 17-day vacation, workers appear to have begun preparing the White House for some needed updates, reports ABC News.

Trump’s social media director Dan Scavino Jr. tweeted a photo of a step ladder in the Oval Office Friday evening with the caption, “Renovations underway at the @WhiteHouse. One hour after Air Force One is wheels up the Oval Office is empty. West Wing is clearing out now.”

CNN’s Betsy Klein also posted an image of an empty wall inside the presidential building, explaining, “Everything in the West Wing is moving into storage while HVAC work is completed — these walls, usually filled with photos, are totally bare.”

These renovations, which had been planned out during the Obama era, will reportedly include an overhaul of the 27-year-old heating and cooling system, Oval Office and West Wing refurbishments and ceiling repairs, among other projects.

The work is happening as Trump spends time at his Bedminster, New Jersey golf resort.
