The White House is undertaking construction work and the oval office Is empty
All of the carpeting in the West Wing is to be replaced – at a cost of $1.17m (£903,800). A fresh coat of paint will add another $275,000 (£212,000) to the bill.
The expenses are in line with those incurred on the orders of previous presidents, the government department overseeing renovations said.
