The White House on Wednesday rejected reports that a replica Oval Office was being built for President Barack Obama to use during repairs of the iconic West Wing complex.
Reports had said that Obama could be asked to move to the Eisenhower Old Executive Office Building adjacent to the White House by August, in the latest stage of a multi-year renovation effort.
"I can say that specifically, reports about a replica Oval Office are false. And, you know, no one's moving from the West Wing ... no decisions about that have been made," White House spokesman Jay Carney said.
