The First President, Ol' Whatsisname


From Politico: 
President Donald Trump had some advice for George Washington.

During a guided tour of Mount Vernon last April with French president Emmanuel Macron, Trump learned that Washington was one of the major real-estate speculators of his era. So, he couldn’t understand why America’s first president didn’t name his historic Virginia compound or any of the other property he acquired after himself.
Ah, yes. The father of our country could really have been something if he only had more places names after him. Like the capitol city or an entire state or something? Or he could have been joking.

It's very hard to tell.
