Trump mocked over White House painting

Washington : United States President Donald Trump's 60 Minutes interview with Leslie Stahl that aired on Sunday night gave a glimpse of a painting that left everyone baffled and amused at the same time.
In the painting, hanging in the White House, Trump can be seen grinning at a table with other former Republican presidents including Abraham Lincoln, Teddy Roosevelt, Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford, Dwight Eisenhower, Richard Nixon, Calvin Coolidge, both Bushes, and Warren G. Harding.
The room, where the artwork titled 'The Republican Club' was spotted, features a large pile of official-looking documents, a remote, a telephone and a large glass jar of Starburst.
The portrait that was also spotted in an image tweeted by 60 Minutes before their report featuring the interview shows the US President donning a stark white shirt andRepublican red tie. All of the presidents who can be seen at the table, served for two terms, except Franklin D. Roosevelt, who was elected once but served two full terms after William McKinley's assassination, reported CNN.
As it is claimed by Trump that he doesn't drink and never has, a Coke can be seen in front of him in the portrait while others were spotted having wine, iced tea or scotch.
Soon after the interview aired, the freeze frame instantly went viral on social media with users ridiculing the US President.
