The "opulent" house has five bedrooms, three-and-a-half bathrooms and 16 beds. Various Trump memorabilia, including photos and quotes of the president, adorn the rooms.

A life-size cutout of Trump, "a great companion for watching the news late into the night", greets you in the drawing room.

An American flag stands tall right outside the house.

HistoryThe spirit of entrepreneurship on display

The house was built by Fred Trump, the president's father. The family moved to a nearby mansion after Trump turned four.

In March, an unnamed party bought the property for $2.14m, then leased it to another for $4,000 monthly.

The owners reportedly didn't want to use it in a traditional way anyway. "We knew (the tenants) weren't buying it to move in," they said.
