President Donald Trump talks with reporters as he reviews border wall prototypes in San Diego

It's a print hanging in his office called "The Republican Club" that depicts Trump fraternizing with other U.S. presidents including Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, and Abe Lincoln in a private club, the Daily Beast reports.

They are seen smiling around a table in a similar-style to the much mocked "Dogs playing poker" paintings. "He liked that one".

The internet lit up immediately when CBS tweeted an image of interviewer Lesley Stahl meeting Donald Trump for the sit-down for 60 Minutes, and behind them on the wall was the print.

Thomas has another version of this painting, titled "The Democratic Club", featuring Democratic presidents like Barack Obama, John F. Kennedy, and Bill Clinton.

The painting depicts Trump and other Republican presidents from years past laughing around a table of drinks.

If you look closely at the screenshot 60 Minutes shared, there is also a bowl of Starburst candy near the photo.

Trump, wearing his ubiquitous red tie and white shirt, seems to be sharing a joke with the group while a glass of what appears to be his beverage of choice - Diet Coke - sits next to his arm. Hear what President Trump has to say about some of the issues that will likely be motivating voters at the ballot.

Low's Germany , who won the World Cup in 2014, have only one point from their opening two Nations League matches. Germany did, however, manage to defeat Peru 2-1 in a friendly on September 9.

Thomas told the Daily Beast that Republican Rep. Darrell Issa gave Trump the painting, which costs $US155 to $US1,700, depending on the size and edition. "He was very complimentary".

The Missouri painter said he didn't know if they were going to hang the painting until Sunday night. "The world laughs at us, but we're getting them changed", he told his cheering supporters.

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 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.

Thomas' painting also includes a notable feminist message - a shadowy woman is seen walking toward the seated presidents.

"As I was doing the painting, I was thinking that these guys are kind of intimidating in a way", he was quoted as saying in the post.
