The White House is currently undergoing a huge restoration which will be much to Donald Trump’s liking after he called it a ‘dump’ (although, he denies that).

The president took a 17-day vacation starting last Friday while workers fix the 27-year-old air conditioning, re-carpet areas and upgrade IT systems.

New photos show the landmark getting some serious beauty treatment as Trump continues to wrangle with North Korea from his New Jersey golf course.

White House spokeswoman Lindsay Walters told reporters: ‘The HVAC systems are 27 years old, but due to the 24/7, 365-day use a year, the estimated age of the system based off of usage is 81-years-old.’

One of the photos shows an old-school panic button on the back of a piece of furniture.

Trump allegedly said the White House ‘is a real dump’ while chatting to some members at a course recently, reports Golf.com.

It is not known if the president made the comment in jest, but a White House spokesperson denies he said this.

Death of 17-month-old boy run over at Ibis hotel was ‘truly tragic accident’

That doesn’t matter, though, because it was enough for Trump haters to jump on at the time.

Chelsea Clinton tweeted: ‘Thank you to all the White House ushers, butlers, maids, chefs, florists, gardeners, plumbers, engineers & curators for all you do every day.’

Rumors he’s not a fan of Washington DC are compounded by the fact that he’s already made multiple trips to his golf course since becoming president.

He owns a cottage next to the club pool (obviously), and secret service recently upgraded the security.

The report goes on to say the president is ‘unguarded among the people who pay for their proximity to him’. He feels so comfortable in the club, apparently, that he hosted a president-elect celebration there in November. That same weekend, he interviewed cabinet future members from the cozy confines of the club.
