Joe Biden removes bust of Winston Churchill from Oval Office

US President Joe Biden removed a bust of Winston Churchill from the Oval Office, CNN reported.

The renovation of the Oval Office resulted in new busts: Latin American civil rights leader Cesar Chavez, and the Reverend Martin Luther King Jr. President Biden’s choices also included a portrait of wartime President Franklin D. Roosevelt and a bust of civil rights hero Rosa Parks.

“It’s of course up to the President to decorate the Oval Office as he wishes,” an unnamed British government spokesperson said in a statement emailed to reporters. “We’re in no doubt about the importance President Biden places on the UK-US relationship.”
