British Prime Minister Theresa May thanked President Trump on Friday for putting a bust of Winston Churchill back in the Oval Office.

Moving the bust back into the Oval Office was one of the first changes Trump made upon taking office last week, after the controversy former President Barack Obama made when he removed it early in his presidency.

“This is the original, folks, this is the original, in many ways,” Trump told reporters, gesturing to the bust in the Oval Office with May. “It’s a great honor to have Winston Churchill back.”

“Thank you, Mr. President, we’re very pleased that you have accepted this back,” May said.

The British prime minister is the first foreign leader Trump has welcomed to the White House since taking office. Trump personally asked Great Britain to loan the bust back to the U.S. for display.
