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.

Millennial Values Clinton’s Experience

Version 2
Lucy, 22, poses with a silver H-baloon at a “Millennials for Hillary Bar Night” that she organized.

Name: Elizabeth Lucy
Borough: Brooklyn
I will vote: Hillary Clinton

“I am completely energized by the fact that she is the first person in history ever that will already know how the White House functions.”

“Day 1, she will get in there, and know who to talk to, who to call, where the toilet paper is, little things that will honestly save so much time and get us going places so much quicker. There won’t be this transitional phase, like any other presidency.”

“It’s really exciting. And also, not just because she is a woman, but I think it is – she will be the first woman to be the president of the United States and I think that will show the rest of the world a lot of progressive things about America. And also just a new perspective, honestly, it’s exciting to me.”

“And beyond that, I have always been a huge fan. I think she is an incredible woman and I really respect her and admire her.”
