Netizens Poke Fun at 'Cringy' Fantasy Painting of Trump With GOP Presidents

Thomas said Trump gave him some positive feedback about the painting.

"I didn't think he was going to call, but (Trump) said that he'd seen a lot of paintings of (himself) and majority he didn't like, but that he liked what I had done", Thomas told Baldwin.

The world got a glimpse into President Donald Trump's artistic taste during his 60 Minutes interview Sunday.

A leading Republican critic of President Donald Trump slammed the suggestion that the US could resume separating migrant and refugee families at the USA border, saying the policy is 'simply. un-American'.

Trump, however, seems to be sporting a soda, as he does not drink.

In an interview, Thomas told the Daily Beast the print was given to the president by Darrell Issa, the California Republican. "He just was effusive really, just as kind as he could be".

"He's outside the norm of Republicans and that makes it kind of interesting", he told Time magazine recently. "If I have some political leanings, I hope it doesn't show in my paintings".

Thomas has also painted a series of portraits featuring Democratic presidents.

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. "And same way with the Democratic painting". But on Saturday, he said some migrant parents wouldn't risk an illegal border crossing if it meant losing their children.

"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. So it's interesting. I just put him at the table, more or less the center of attention.

He also found it hard to give the president a "genuine smile" - and had to start from scratch after his first try seemed off. But a lot of people agree with me.

The self-taught cowboy painter from Missouri said he wasn't sure how the 45th president would be received by his predecessors in an imaginary meeting.
