Take an inside look at very bare Oval Office


As President Trump continues to vacation at a New Jersey golf resort, construction workers have been busy working to renovate the center of the White House: the Oval Office.

On Friday, reporters got a firsthand look at the office's new look.

For renovations to be made, workers cleared the carpet, walls and shelves of decoration.

Some of the White House upgrades include fixing existing leaks, repairs to the South Portico steps, new carpeting, new heating and air conditioning systems, renovations to the West Wing lobby and an improved IT system, according to affiliate WJLA.

President Trump, according to an updated presidential schedule obtained by Politico, may interrupt his 17-day vacation with a quick trip to Washington on Monday, quickly followed with a return to his New York Trump Tower. The details regarding his return aren't immediately clear.
