NBC reported Thursday that President Trump has spent roughly $1.75 million redecorating the White House during his time in office.
Some of the additional costs are due to recent renovations to the building's air conditioning system, which was long overdue according to professionals. Trump at one point reportedly called the White House a "dump" to a group of friends according to Golf.com.
I love the White House, one of the most beautiful buildings (homes) I have ever seen. But Fake News said I called it a dump - TOTALLY UNTRUE— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) August 3, 2017
