President Joe Biden would get angry when he spotted reminders of former President Donald Trump at the White House during private tours of presidential quarters, according to a forthcoming book.

In ‘The Fight of His Life: Inside Joe Biden’s White House,’ due for publication Jan. 17, author Chris Whipple wrote that Biden would ‘go wild’ on Trump when showing special guests around his official residence. , according to the New York Post.

On one occasion, Biden became enraged and began swearing after coming across Trump’s big-screen TV and golf simulator in a room above the Oval Office, the book said, according to the newspaper.

“‘What a fucking asshole,’ Biden said, according to the New York Post’s report on Whipple’s upcoming book. The Post received an advance copy of “The Fight of His Life: Inside the White House from Joe Biden”.

The Washington Post reported in 2019 that Trump installed a room-sized golf simulator at the White House that allowed the former president to hit a ball on a large video screen. The installation cost around $50,000, the newspaper said, citing a former White House official.

According to Whipple, it wasn’t just the golf simulator that aggravated Biden and reminded him of his predecessor. The president also called for the Resolute Office in the Oval Office to be removed because it was a “ubiquitous” reminder of Trump, according to the book, according to the Post.

The desk, a gift from Queen Victoria to President Rutherford B. Hayes in 1880, was constructed from the oak timbers of the British exploration vessel HMS Resolute.

It has been used in the Oval Office by several presidents, including Trump and former President Barack Obama, but the book said Biden wanted to use an office owned by the late President Franklin D. Roosevelt. However, it couldn’t be moved, so the Resolute desk remained in place, according to the Post.

The Biden administration did not immediately respond to Insider’s request for comment.
