Donald Trump Won't Work From The Oval Office For A Year - President Obama Might Be To Blame

President Elect Donald Trump might have to wait before he can settle into the Oval Office - he might have to wait as long as a year. According to a former George W. Bush advisor, President Obama has ordered a complete security renovation - slated for right after he leaves.

Karl Rove reported that White House security is gearing up for a big Oval Office overhaul. Plans include stripping the office down, making numerous secret updated security enhancements and installing bullet proof glass.

According to Rove, President Obama could have done this in his last year of office. "But instead he said, "Why don’t you do that [with] whoever comes next so the president of the United States, President Trump, my understanding is, will spend most of his first year using Richard Nixon’s old office in the Old Executive Office Building across executive drive and up the Navy steps," explained Rove to the Daily Mail.

The Eisenhower Executive Office Building on White House grounds houses the offices of several government officials. While it's possible if renovations commence, Trump could end up spending a quarter of his first term as president working out of the building. However, a spokesperson for the Secret Service has refused to confirm or deny plans to make changes to the Oval Office.

Trump has expressed the desire to commute to work via helicopter and to spend as much time as possible in his lavish penthouse in New York City. He'll be the first president for whom the White House is a step down.
