The US President said that he took the scuplture of Britain’s wartime leader out of his office, where it had been placed by George W. Bush, because the room was ‘a little cluttered’. However, he also pointed out that he keeps a bust of Churchill outside his private office elsewhere in the White House, adding: ‘I see it every day, including on weekends.’ The removal of the bust from the Oval Office has been a source of tension ever since Mr Obama came to power in January 2009, with some Britons seeing the move as a snub to the Special Relationships.
