The Trump campaign will run its election night war room at the Eisenhower Executive Office Building, located steps from the West Wing, the campaign confirmed to Axios.
The decision to move the main political operation from the campaign’s headquarters in Arlington, Va., to the White House complex is the latest example of the Trump administration blurring the lines between governing and political activity.
“The war room needed to be in close proximity to the president and there is no expense whatsoever to American taxpayers for the use of a room in the EEOB, where events like prayer services and receptions for outside groups frequently occur,” Trump campaign communications director Tim Murtaugh told Axios.
