Guggenheim offers Trump a gold toilet for White House

Donald and Melania Trump had a simple request: to borrow a Van Gogh painting from a NY museum for their White House private quarters.

The fully functional "America" toilet made from 18-karat gold was exhibited at the Guggenheim past year.

The White House wrote to the museum in September, asking to borrow Vincent Van Gogh's stunning piece, "Landscape With Snow", for the Trumps' private quarters.

The curator at the Guggenheim responded to Trump's request by offering to loan the White House a working toilet made of gold called "America", according to The Washington Post.

Cattelan in the past described the toilet as "one-percent art for the ninety-nine percent", and said "whatever you eat, a two-hundred-dollar lunch or a two-dollar hot dog, the results are the same, toilet-wise", according to the Post.

The toilet, titled "America", was on exhibit for one year in the fifth floor public restroom, where visitors could, in fact, use the golden toilet.

It was available "should the President and First Lady have any interest in installing it in the White House", Ms Spector reportedly wrote. She added: "It is, of course, extremely valuable and somewhat fragile, but we would provide all the instructions for its installation and care".

The White House has yet to accept the offer and did not respond a request from the newspaper.

The artist told the Post, "It's a very delicate subject". When a reporter asked why he offered the toilet to the Trumps, Cattelan said: "What's the point of our life?"

"When the sculpture came off view on September 15, Trump had been in office for 238 days, a term marked by scandal and defined by the deliberate rollback of countless civil liberties, in addition to climate-change denial that puts our planet in peril", Spector wrote in the August 17 post.

"On the face of it, President Trump might appreciate an artist's rendering of a gilded toilet, given his well-documented history of installing gold-plated fixtures in his residences, his properties and even his airplane", The Post reports.
