U.S. president got rid of some of the decor elements left by Donald Trump

President Biden has removed from his office the military flags installed at the behest of Donald Trump. Joe Biden replaced them with the U.S. flag and the presidential seal flag.

Biden also ordered the removal of a portrait of former U.S. President Andrew Jackson, whose style of government historians have often compared to that of Trump.

Instead, portraits of American leaders who have shown courage and wisdom in confronting serious crises appeared in the office. In particular, Abraham Lincoln, who destroyed slavery and led the country through the Civil War, and Franklin Roosevelt, who was president at the height of the Great Depression and during World War II.

The Oval Office features images of the founding fathers of the United States and irreconcilable political adversaries Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson, who successfully collaborated; a bust of one of the prominent early 19th-century politicians, Daniel Webster, who successfully defended the country’s unity in 1830; and busts of civil rights fighters, including Rosa Parks and César Chávez; and a sculpture by an Apache Indian.
