The White House will unveil the first of several “office decor” designs by the president’s campaign staff on Thursday, as he seeks to woo more voters who are turning to him as the GOP nominee.
The office décor is a key part of Trump’s bid to attract young voters and independents who have turned to him in the aftermath of a series of scandals and his failed attempts to win the White House in 2016.
The White House has been building an office for months at Trump Tower in New York City.
The White, House and Office of Management and Budget, or WHOB, has been working on a “dome” style office for the past several months, according to White House officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity to describe private discussions.
The “domes” are designed to give the president and top aides space to work from their private homes while at work, according the officials.
The president and his top aides, including chief of staff Reince Priebus, chief strategist Stephen Bannon and chief of operations Matt Rhoades, have been living in Trump Tower for months, a White House official told CNN.
“They’ve been here for a long time,” said the official, who was not authorized to discuss the matter publicly.
“They’re working there every day, every day.”
It’s not the first time the White Houses office has come under scrutiny.
The Trump campaign’s first chief of digital strategy, Andrew Surasky, resigned last year after an investigation found he had violated campaign finance laws.
In the months leading up to the 2016 election, the White house has faced criticism over its use of private contractors, including the use of contractors such as the Trump campaign and the RNC.
Trump’s transition team announced in October that it would hire a “full-time, full-time and part-time executive,” as well as a “technical director,” who would serve as the “point person” on the transition.
The move came amid criticism of Trump for using private contractors to staff his transition and run his campaign.
A report from the nonpartisan Government Accountability Office found that Trump’s team used private contractors for more than 100 of his campaign staffers during the 2016 presidential race.
The report also said that Trump staffers had to pay nearly $40,000 in fees and costs associated with those private contractors.
The WHOB has been looking at different office decor designs for months to get people to look at the president, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham said on Monday.
The first office décoratement was designed by the National Park Service, which has offices in downtown Washington, D.C., as well in the Lincoln Memorial and the White Senate, as well at the Lincoln Museum.
The National Park Services has also been working with the Trump transition team to “rebrand” the White, White, and Office space, said Sarah Huckabee Sanders, a senior White House adviser, on Sunday.
The new designs include a portrait of the president as a man and woman, a picture of him with his family, and the words “I’m with him.”
“They are designed for all Americans and they are designed with the public in mind,” Sanders said.
“The fact that we are working with someone that has been the president of the United States for so many years, we think is a pretty good idea.”
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Stavins said the office déclaration is part of the campaign’s effort to “make sure the president has an office where people can look at him and see that he is committed to doing the job the right way.”
It will be up to them to make sure the new design is effective, she said.
Stavins also said there are “many, many other elements of decorating that we haven’t gotten to yet.”
The White, Office of Government Ethics, has issued guidelines on decorating the White residence, as has the Office of the Chief of Staff.
But none of those documents, which were released on Sunday, specifically state that the Whitehouse must “make the office a ‘dome.'”
Trump has been criticized by Republican officials and other experts for his use of “dumps” — the practice of delivering campaign material to reporters at the WhiteHouse to be delivered to a designated address.
He also has been caught up in a sexual harassment scandal involving his longtime friend Roger Stone.
The Trump campaign also has faced scrutiny for its use by the Republican National Committee of a paid videographer to deliver the campaign materials.
Trump is scheduled to be interviewed on Sunday by ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos.
