White House goes under renovation during President Trump's vacation.
  Monday 07 August, 2017
White House goes under renovation during President Trump\'s vacation.

When the president is away, the renovators come to play.

The West Wing is undergoing renovation over the next couple weeks, while President Trump vacations in Bedminster, N.J..

On the list of repairs: the replacement of the heating, ventilation and air conditioning system, as well as restoration of the South Portico's steps and repairs to the Navy mess kitchen and the lower lobby, Trump spokeswoman Lindsay Walters told reporters last week.

As the renovations take place, the staff has been moved to the nearby executive building.

"I don't think any of you would like to be in the West Wing on an August D.C. summer day when it's over 100 degrees with no air conditioning," Walters said.

Last week, a report from Golf magazine surfaced saying that the president had said ""that White House is a real dump."

The installation of a new HVAC system was originally slated for 2014, The New York Times reported. But when the General Service Administration didn't deliver an installation plan until spring 2016, the Obama White House decided to punt construction to the next administration.
