President-elect Donald Trump today announced that he will be moving his cabinet to the extreme right of the Oval Office. Speaking on ABC News, Mr Trump said: “When I met with President Obama the other day, he showed me around the White House. I noticed that an expensive mahogany cabinet was prominently placed in the centre of the room. I have decided that it should be moved more to the right.”
He denied that he was moving the cabinet from its prominent position because of its colour. President Obama, he said, would be moving out of the White House just before the inauguration.
Mr Trump went on to echo his predecessor President Richard Nixon, when he said: “There will be no white wash at the White House.”
Mr Trump is 70.
