White House renovations unfold while Trump stays at golf resort

White House renovations unfold while Trump stays at golf resortPresident Trump tweeted on Monday that he was “working hard from New Jersey while the White House goes through long planned renovation.” While the “working hard” part may be up for debate given his empty schedule, at least one game of golf and appearance at a wedding over the weekend, the portion about construction in the capital is indeed true. Workers began a $3.4 million project to fix up the White House last week, according to The New York Times. The White House was built in the 1790s, burned in 1814 and reconstructed in 1817.
