Churchill was a British statesman, army officer and writer,
who served as
Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from
1940 to 1945 and again from 1951 to 1955.

The bust of Winston Churchill is said to be a replica of one given
to 1960s leader Lyndon B Johnson and first appeared in the Oval
Office during former George W Bush’s administration. However it
was replaced by a bust of civil rights leader Martin Luther King Jr
during Barack Obama’s presidency.

 Trump was joined by a bust of Churchill in the Oval Office as he signed off his first orders as President

The bust of  Churchill (far left) was returned to the White House’s
Oval at President Donald Trump’s request just hours after Trump
was sworn in as the 45th President of the United States.
