"His apartment at Trump Tower is all gold. We'd go in that direction." — Eugene Lee, Saturday Night Live

"For Hillary Clinton, I'd warm it up a little in color and choose a different carpet — normally the carpets have an inscription or motto with something that the president feels strongly about. For Donald Trump, he would probably want more glitzy furniture with gold trim." — Steve Arnold, House of Cards

"[For Trump,] there would be gold leaf all over the place — I think it would be completely tasteless. I would imagine he might even put his name somewhere in the Oval Office if they would let him." — Jim Gloster, Veep
