Trump Drawing of Skyline Goes Up for Auction, Experts Offer Mixed Reviews

A handful of American presidents have shown a real knack for fine art. Dwight D. Eisenhower painted bucolic landscapes and humble homes. Jimmy Carter illustrated the signing of the Camp David Accords. In recent years, George W. Bush has drawn attention — and some acclaim — for his portraits of veterans.

President Donald Trump, for his part, once did a drawing of the New York City skyline.

The 11.5-by-9-inch piece, originally sketched by the president for a 2005 charity event, is now up for auction. Los Angeles-based Nate D. Sanders Auctions set the starting bid at $9,000.
