President Trump's portrait still missing from federal walls after nearly six months

The Trump Administration hasn't sent the Government Printing Office his official portrait, according to the Hill.

"GPO is standing by to reproduce copies of the president and the vice president's photos for official use in Federal facilities, and will do so as soon as the official photo files are provided to us," said GPO spokesman Gary Somerset.

But the delay means that the portrait does not hang in the more than 7,000 agencies that typically display the commander in chief's portrait. Instead, most just have an empty space on the wall.
