I was *wondering* if they'd get around to this one!

Note that the "White House Gift Shop" is not affiliated with the White House in any way.  The owner is in Pennsylvania and merely trademarked the name.

Quote

The White House Gift Shop is a controversial business that is only tangentially related to the actual White House. At one point it was affiliated with the Secret Service, but the trademark is held by a private individual, Anthony Giannini.   Giannini describes himself as non-partisan, but admits he is a Trump supporter.

This last sentence is obvious by his collection of "Great Moments In The History Of President Trump" coins.
