Trump's smile was hard to paint - as reported by - and Thomas noted he had to look at thousands of images.

He dismissed suggestions that he might take responsibility, as his predecessor Barack Obama did, for mid-term losses, or view the outcome as a referendum on his presidency.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that he won't accept the blame if Republicans lose the House in November.

Painted with his classic red tie and wide grin, Trump is laughing with former presidents including Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan, Teddy Roosevelt, Abraham Lincoln, George H.W. Bush and George W. Bush.

"Called 'The Republican Club, ' the print of 10 Republican presidents sitting around a table could be seen briefly in the background of Trump's interview with "60 Minutes" Sunday, and an image of that moment went viral on social media".

The artist behind the painting, Andy Thomas, told Inside Edition that he received a personal phone call from Trump, requesting his own.

"Wow, during the 60 Minutes interview this evening look what is on the wall!" he wrote.

"As I was doing the painting, I was thinking that these guys are kind of intimidating in a way". "The woman who would be president would walk right up to that table without hesitation".

"Well, I think we have to find out what happened first", Mr Trump said. "I had to find a photo where it looked like he's actually heard something amusing, so it looks like a genuine smile".

Trump said he will "handle it very well" if Democrats pursue investigations or impeachment should they take the House.

Previously seen on jigsaw puzzle boxes around Washington DC, the nightmarishly hokey painting depicts the former reality television host among solidly Republican previous presidents.

Trump announced that McGahn would be leaving less than two weeks after the Times reported that he had given around 30 hours of interviews to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation.

The President learned of Thomas' work - which is being compared to the famous "Dogs Playing Poker" paintings by Cassius Marcellus Coolidge - after Republican Rep. of California showed him a copy.
