So what? Who cares? If it's got to be done, go ahead and do it! Just shut your yap and "get 'er done"!
Here's the story:
- Although the U.S. Secret Service doesn't reveal its plans, since 2013 the Service has planned to modernize the Oval Office with security enhancements, which include stripping it down to the bare walls and building it back up to provide the President greater security.
- These modernizations to the Oval Office will take nearly 1 year to complete. In the interim, the President must use the Old Executive Office Building (OEOB)—formerly known as the "Eisenhower Executive Office Building—located across the street from the White House.
Nothing newsworthy here. President Nixon had to work out of the OEOB...while he was President.
And that's the story here.
Yes, President Obama could have had the enhancements made during his last year in office and worked out of the OEOB. The Oval Office would then be "up and running" come Inauguration Day 2017.
But, President Obama didn't and now President-Elect Trump will spend his first year—up to 25% of his first term in office—working across the street.
What a magnanimous gesture of respect for the Office of President of the United States...NOT!
