A new filing in the Federal Register on Wednesday detailed the extravagant gifts former President Donald Trump and his officials were given by foreign leaders in 2019.

The State Department’s Office of Protocol requires a record be kept of all gifts received by U.S. officials valued at over $390. The gifts can either be retained by the recipients if they purchase them at the valued cost, or turned over to the National Archives.

Trump and former First Lady Melania were gifted a total of $120K worth of often unique items from world leaders. 

The former president was gifted several images of himself including a $5,250 dual-pane glass painting from Vietnamese President Nguyen Phu Trong, a $4,450 double framed carved from black stone from Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sisi, and a $470 framed photo of America’s first couple from the Australian Prime Minister. 

Non-Trump-themed art included a bronze sculpture of an Arabian horse valued at $7,200 from the crown prince of Bahrain and a $6,300 jewel-encrusted statue of an Arabian oryx from the emir of Qatar.

 He received guns from the Prime Minister of Bulgaria Boyko Borissov and Prime Minister of the Czech Republic Andrew Babis, who gifted him with an Ottoman Empire rifle valued at $8,500 and a $710 CZ 75 9mm pistol respectively.

Melania was the recipient of a treasure trove of jewelry, including two sets of pearl earrings worth $700 from the Australian Prime Minister’s wife and $2600 from the wife of Japanese PM Abe. 

She was given white gold diamond earrings worth $470 from the wife of the Czech Prime Minister, and a sterling silver jewelry box from the Queen of England, that was specially commissioned and thoughtfully valued at the $390 keepsake rate.  

The Queen gave Trump a pen set and a first edition copy of The Second World War by Winston S. Churchill.

Oh, you poor thing! Don’t you know that ALL senior politicians are given gifts when they visit another country leader, you actually believe this is meaningful that they would give Trump a gift, everyone gets a gift. What has he ever done to make him a hero? Maybe when he went to fight in Vietnam? Oops, sorry, he managed to get out of that one didn’t with his enrollment at uni and his false heel spurs. Yes, I real hero!! And his many businesses that failed to leave workers unpaid! Yep, that should do it.

Glad to hear the Queen didn’t give Trump an MP3 player like she received from Obama.

Interesting the results of receiving these gifts is not given. Did Trump buy them or did they go to the National Archives. Why can’t those writing these stories give you the results or finish of the article. Why are we always left hanging. I read years ago that gifts given to presidents automatically went to the Archives because gov’t officials cannot keep these gifts legally as gifts are supposedly given to the people via the president of gov’t official. The laws must have been changed through the years if the gifts can be brought by the receiver. Interesting.
