Is Trump Building a New White House?

Like I mentioned, I am interning in Washington right now, and while I was walking down Pennsylvania Avenue the other day, I came across this:

1600 Pennsylvania Ave might be the most famous address in the country. Home to the White House, it has endured a long history of presidents and first families, all the way to the Obamas.

Following this year’s elections the famous building will either – for the first time ever- see an old inhabitant again (Clinton) or welcome real estate mogul Donald Trump.

For Trump the building itself might be a disappointment, after all his current domicile is made of gold and marble and modeled after Versailles.

Maybe that’s why Trump is busy building a new castle-like hotel that is set to open this year – albeit on 1100 Pennsylvania Ave and not on 1600. Who knows maybe he wants to replace the White House and establish a new presidential home? I wouldn’t be the first controversial idea he has ever had.
