Donald Trump is No Longer President at the White House Visitor Center
Did public calls get Joe Biden on the wall finally in March 2023?
The mystery of Donald Trump still being displayed as president at the White House Visitor Center has been solved. Two weeks after my story about the National Park Service (NPS) asking the public to contact the highest levels of the federal government over the widespread fascination, the “presidents wall” was finally updated.
Penguin Six Exclusive
YouTuber Penguin Six broke the story on Tuesday that the wall has been fixed with Joe Biden’s photo added after two years in office. The 2021 end date for Trump was also included. Watch his new video to see it for yourself:
Penguin Six, whose name is Andrew Leyden, said sources told him about the change in the display. Leyden first reported in a video in Dec. 2021 that the display had not been updated since Trump took office in 2017. His video went viral and led to conspiracy theories and serious questions about the efficacy of the government.

Facts or Coverup
Leyden told me that a reason for the delay could be that the picture of Barack Obama is now his official White House portrait, which was just released a few months ago. Biden and Trump are photographs (see his tweet below.)
As you know, I’ve been asking both the NPS information desk officers for information and the Office of Public Affairs (which answers media inquiries) for details since my first story on Oct. 12.
First the NPS told me the delay was because they had to take down all the panels to fix the one of the most recent election. A month later, the NPS told me that a two year delay way normal because that was how long it took to change Obama to Trump (but there are no facts to back up that claim.)
When I went back in Feb., I was given a laundry list of reasons, from funding to not having a vendor. The Park Service official finally said he was tired of people asking about the wall and encouraged me to tell my readers and social media followers to contact the Secretary of the Interior Department and the NPS Director.
Just the facts
In light of Leyden’s reporting, I just sent an email to the spokespeople with the nine unanswered questions below. I’ll update if I hear back from them.
