“The change is visible … busts of Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert F. Kennedy now flank the oval office and one of labor organizer Cesar Chavez rests among framed personal photos behind President Biden’s desk. ”

Biden placed several new busts in the Oval putting Cesar Chavez directly behind him. I wonder if the media will accuse him of removing the MLK bust or not placing it in a prominent location to fan racial flames like they did 4 years ago?
He’s also using Clinton’s rug & drapes. pic.twitter.com/QGlbq5Jaez
