Donald Trump has already made it clear that he hopes to ditch convention and spend weekends in his Trump Tower penthouse during his presidency (despite the unprecedented traffic snarls and security issues it’ll cause). In addition to sleeping in his own bed, this will allow him to work out of his personal office. The 26th floor space is covered in awards, sports memorabilia, family photos, and an unsurprisingly narcissistic collection of magazines with yours truly on the cover. Business Insider uncovered two videos from last year–one from the Washington Post, one from the Wall Street Journal–where Trump provided tours of the office, and it looks like our next president may be working on international politics with one of Shaquille O’Neal’s sneakers sitting next to him.
In the video above from the Wall Street Journal, reporter Monica Langley tells Trump that his office is “a little bit junky,” to which he quickly agrees. He points out his chair from “The Apprentice,” sitting prominently in front of a wall of windows overlooking Central Park, as well as Tom Brady’s Superbowl helmet and Mike Tyson’s belt.
On his tour with the Journal, Trump touts the various awards framed gallery style on his wall, where he also proudly displays his “Playboy” cover (“I was one of the few men in the history of Playboy to be on the cover,” he boasted) and a photo with Ronald Reagan, (“He liked me, and I liked him,” Trump said of his “good relationship” with the former President). He also points to stacks of magazines that came out in the past few weeks in which he’s featured.
