Only people with merit should enter the country, says President Donald Trump

Only people with merit should enter the country, says President Donald Trump

"I remember he said he's seen a lot of paintings of himself and he doesn't usually like them", says Thomas.

Thomas, who claims his work is non-partisan, has also crafted similar paintings of former Democratic presidents playing pool together.

President Donald Trump's much hyped 60 Minutes interview with Leslie Stahl finally aired on Sunday night.

The painting's surprising debut on "60 Minutes" inspired a slew of scathing commentary, from "Oh my god, it's in the White House" to "Is it on a black velvet background?"

"Trump with the poker playing dogs!" someone tweeted, evoking another famous, folksy painting showing canines around a table playing cards.

Trump made his comments to reporters on the South Lawn of the White House before boarding Marine One for his trip to Kentucky, where he was scheduled to headline an evening campaign rally. The artwork shows Trump with a glass of Diet Coke, according to Time. "Honest" Abe Lincoln appears to have water, Reagan has a gaudy cocktail, the others have various beverages. Thomas said Trump is a "very subtle person to paint", and said the President has "different looks and different profiles". He also admitted he's a nostalgic painter, specializing in cowboy scenes.

Judge dismisses Stormy Daniels defamation lawsuit against Trump
Lawyers for Mr Trump have sought to dismiss both lawsuits. "No amount of spin or commentary by Stormy Daniels or her lawyer, Mr. The ruling ordered Daniels, whose given name is Stephanie Clifford, to pay Trump's legal fees. "The Court holds that Mr.

"But it's something that's gonna happen, you know, it doesn't need to be advocated or anything - we're gonna have a woman, you know, 50% of our presidents will be women probably from this time on", Thomas said.

"It's really Donald Trump all over".

But in The Republican Club, a painting by Andy Thomas, an uncharacteristically brawny Trump sports an affable, if slightly pinched smile as he is joined by the likes of Abraham Lincoln, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Teddy Roosevelt and George W Bush. All the men appear to be sharing a joke.

Whether or not he knows about the small feminist message, Thomas said Trump might have gotten the print through Rep. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.), who Thomas has painted before.

"I'm not registered in any way", Thomas told CNN, when asked about his political affiliation. This is in line with Trump famously saying that he doesn't drink alcohol.

It could be any Republican president's fantasy: hanging out at a bar with fellow conservative American leaders of years, decades, and even centuries past.
