The Department of Veterans Affairs ordered all facilities Thursday to put up temporary official photos of President Trump and VA Secretary Shulkin.
“The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA), like all other federal agencies, relies on the U.S. Government Publishing Office (GPO) to provide us official photos of the President to display in our facilities. The GPO will print the portraits upon receipt of the file from the White House and then distribute accordingly,” wrote VA spokesman Randal Noller.
The order came after Rep. Brian Mast made public the Palm Beach, Florida VA Hospital’s unwillingness to hang portraits of the commander-in-chief and secretary claiming they even told him that Trump was “not our president.”
Mast personally brought in pictures of both men and had facility staff hang them only to have officials take them down as soon as the congressman left.
The VA included a link to official high-resolution photos of President Trump and Secretary Shulkin to be downloaded, printed and displayed until the White House releases the official portrait of President Trump.
