Joe Biden removes Donald Trump’s bust of Winston Churchill and replaced it with union leader Cesar
Chavez after redecorating the Oval Office on his first day as president.
A Winston Churchill bust, which Trump brought back after his predecessor Barack Obama removed it, has been
replaced with a bust of labor leader Cesar Chavez.
The bust of Chavez sits alongside framed photographs of Biden’s family members.
The newly redecorated Oval Office also features busts of civil rights leaders Martin Luther King Jr and Rosa
Parks, as well as ex-President John F Kennedy.
Among several family photos, the 46th president placed a picture of his late son Beau Biden – who died of
brain cancer in 2015 – holding his younger brother Hunter.
On a table behind the Resolute Desk, Biden has also displayed pictures of Pope Francis, his mother Catherine
Eugenia Finnegan, his wife Jill, son Hunter, daughter Ashley, and his grandchildren.
Trump’s gold curtains were gone and replaced with curtains of a darker shade of gold which ex-President Bill
Clinton used. The gold and yellow rug was also taken away and replaced with a dark blue rug.
Biden also removed Trump’s portrait of ex-President Andrew Jackson, who made money from slave labour and
allowed thousands of Native Americans to die during his term.
