Donald Trump's official presidential photo will be hung in thousands of federal agencies - but they might get taken down too.
The contentiousness of Trump's victory has already played out in a power struggle at one VA medical facility in Florida.
After what some vets perceived as a delay in getting Trump's portrait up in the West Palm Beach's VA hospital's hallway, they complained to first term Republican Congressman Brian Mast, who lost both legs to an IED in Afghanistan.



Portraits of the sitting president, vice president, and other cabinet members are standard through thousands of federal agencies across the country. When they go up, however, seems to depend.
Obama's portrait was ordered removed from VA facilities on January 20, according to ABC News.
Trump's photo has already been hung at the Pentagon and most photos were expected to be hung by early March.
'It should be there. Every other president was there wasn’t it? Something’s wrong,' Vietnam vet Walter Korabiak told CBS 12.

Mast told Fox News when he complained to an unnamed federal employee, the bureaucrat answered 'He's not my president.'
On Tuesday, Mast took matters into his own hands when he decided to hang Trump's photo in the facility himself.
So Mast went to the facility, where he also gets treatment, and had the maintenance staff help him put up portraits of Trump and Secretary of Veteran's Affairs David Schulkin.
But after he left, the photos were promptly taken back down.

Mast wrote on his Facebook page: 'Yesterday I visited the West Palm Beach VA after numerous calls from constituents that there was a delay in hanging up photos of the new VA Secretary and Commander In Chief - photos that are hung in every VA facility across the country.

'While there, we helped to hang the official photos of Secretary Shulkin and President Trump, but they've now been taken down again. Especially after so many veterans contacted me about this issue, it's disappointing to see resistance from the VA over hanging these portraits.'
'I left and the leadership had the portraits removed,' Mast told Fox News.

The outlet claimed a similar incident happened at the Environmental Protection Agency office. But the EPA denied it, with spokesman Doug Ericksen saying, 'Anyone is taking them down, it’s illegal. We’re focused on protecting public health and the environment - we’ll let them play politics on the Hill.'
Officials at the West Palm Beach office told CBS 12 that the portraits were taken down not because of any ill will towards Trump but because they hadn't been approved by the central office when they're authenticated as official.

In addition to being a mental disorder Liberalism is childish. But beyond that, who is the faceless bureaucrat who ordered them removed? Such people are never identified nor do they ever seem to receive any punishment for their behavior. This, too, has got to change.

I agree, put a face on that bureaucrat!
