Here's Something You Need to Know

President Donald Trump paid a visit to Mount Vernon last year with French President Emmanuel Macron, and according to new details relayed by associates to Politico, the experience was "truly bizarre."

Mount Vernon president and CEO Doug Bradburn, who led the tour, according to Politico, has told several people that the Macrons were far more knowledgeable about the history of Washington's compound than Trump seemed to be.

On the tour, Trump reportedly learned about the first US president's real estate empire. But three sources briefed on the exchange told Politico that Trump didn't seem too impressed."If he was smart, he would've put his name on it," Trump said of Mount Vernon. "You've got to put your name on stuff or no one remembers you."

Bradburn reminded Trump that Washington had succeeded in getting the nation's capital named after him. Trump reportedly replied that that was a good point and laughed, according to the publication.

Washington's real estate empire made him one of the wealthiest Americans of his time, but Trump asked whether the first US president was "really rich."

When the guide spoke about Washington's wealth and real estate dealings, "that is what Trump was really the most excited about," a person familiar with the tour told Politico.
