Donald Trump received a private tour of Mount Vernon, which was George Washington's home, with French President Emmanuel Macron while the leader was in the country and during the tour he privately marveled at the first President's decision to not name his famed property after himself. Mount Vernon president and CEO Doug Bradburn then politely reminded Donald that the first President did succeed in getting our nations capitol named after himself, to which Trump laughed.

“If he was smart, he would’ve put his name on it,” Trump said, according to multiple sources briefed on Trump's comment. “You’ve got to put your name on stuff or no one remembers you.”
