Andy Thomas, a self-taught artist based in Carthage, Missouri, even admitted that he depicted Trump as slimmer than he is in real life. "I remember he said he's seen a lot of paintings of himself and he doesn't usually like them", says Thomas.

The internet lit up immediately when CBS tweeted an image of interviewer Lesley Stahl meeting Donald Trump for the sit-down for 60 Minutes, and behind them on the wall was the print.

But he only found out the painting had been hung in the White House - close to the Oval Office - when it popped up as a backdrop during a TV interview broadcast on Sunday evening. But Thomas' talents aren't reserved for the GOP-he also painted "Democratic Presidents Playing Pool", artwork featuring former Presidents Barack Obama, Bill Clinton, and others.

According to the Daily Beast, Trump loves the illustration, which many on Twitter have likened to the political version of the famous painting of dogs playing poker.

For example, while the other presidents have alcoholic drinks in front of them, a Diet Coke appears to be Trump's drink of choice.

Although most of the former presidents in the painting have since died, it does including living father and son presidents George H.W. and George W. Bush.

U.S. President Donald Trump said on Saturday that separating migrant families at the border could deter illegal immigration and that he was considering several options to tighten border security.

In this newest gathering, Trump is in the middle of the picture.

"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 populist, and he's not going to be shy that he's the center of attention.

"All I know is he said he liked what I'd done and that made me feel great", Thomas told CNN.

The president is seen seated with Ronald Reagan, Dwight Eisenhower, Abraham Lincoln, Richard Nixon and George W. Bush. Trump at centre stagewears a gleaming white shirt and his signature red tie.

"I was ecstatic", he told Time.

A post on Thomas' website said the painting had a "subtle feminist message" because there is a woman in the background walking toward the table.

Now on 60 Minutes: There's less than a month until the mid-term elections.

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.
