A photo of former President Donald Trump was posted on Monday in his new office in Mar-a-Lago, revealing presidential memories and clues about how his post-presidency is going.
Trump is sitting at a desk that resembles the Oval Office Resolute Desk pictured, which former assistant Stephen Miller tweeted after what he called an “excellent meeting.”
A pair of reading glasses and an open copy of the Wall Street Journal are before Trump on the desk. Trump rarely wears glasses in public.
Partially hidden behind a phone appears to be his favorite drink, a bottle of Diet Coke, though it doesn’t appear to have a button that he used to summon his favorite low-calorie drink in the White House.
On a wall behind Trump is a photo of Mount Rushmore with its four presidents. Last year, he reflected on adding a fifth face: his own. The photo appears to show the Marine One presidential helicopter flying past the chiseled landmark, possibly last year when Trump headlined a July 4 fireworks display.
Also on the former president’s desk is a piece of the metal that was used to build his border wall between the United States and Mexico. The keepsake was turned into a trophy and presented to Trump during an April 2019 visit to Calexico, California.
On a table on Trump’s shoulder is a small statue of Trump himself, while another table has family photographs.
Miller was a supporter of immigration policy and helped push for reforms to reduce illegal and legal immigration. He met with Trump amid an immigration crisis between the United States and Mexico that many, including Trump, attribute to hastily implemented reforms and Biden’s remarks on immigration.
