Donald Trump To Return Winston Churchill Statue to Oval Office

Winston Churchill

Barack Obama had removed it from the White House’s Oval Office in 2009 in favour of a Martin Luther King statue.

This had caused some ill feeling towards him from the British government, with Boris Johnson accusing the US president of snubbing the UK.

The Foreign Minister even controversially suggested Obama’s ‘ancestral dislike of the British Empire’ might have something to do with it.

But now it seems like the Trump wants to return it to the White House when he becomes leader.

‘I am, indeed, I am,’ he said after being asked by the New York Times if it was coming back.

Former Prime Minister Tony Blair originally gave the Churchill bust to George W Bush while both were leaders.
