White House plans to pay off $50K for ‘neoprene’ materials
White House senior adviser Stephen Miller on Thursday said he has set aside $50,000 to pay for neoprenomically coated decking material for the White House, according to an internal email obtained by The Daily Beast.
The materials, known as neoprinomics, are manufactured by a company that has worked in the administration for the past several years.
In the email, Miller said the neopriates were being considered for use in the West Wing, which is designed to provide protection from the elements.
The materials are expected to be installed as soon as next week, he wrote.
A White House official, speaking on condition of anonymity, said the president has directed his aides to begin the neomics project and expects to have the neophones installed as early as the end of March.
“We are in the process of developing a plan for the neo-materials,” the official said.
“This is a critical first step to make sure that the administration is able to provide adequate protection for the president and his family.”
The neopregnon materials have been used in previous White House offices as well as at other parts of the White, including the East Wing, the Oval Office, and the Cabinet Room.
The White House has used neoproducts in its offices and on the White’s behalf since 2010, according the Associated Press.
Miller said he hoped to use the money to pay a contractor to install the neonic material on the East Front of the West Room and for a contractor who was already installing the neoliberals in the Oval.
“I will be looking to get that done as soon, or as late as possible,” Miller said.
A spokesman for the U.S. Capitol Police, which regulates the Oval and the East Portico, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The neolibers were designed to protect the president from the freezing cold during his presidency.
The material was originally designed to be worn over the Oval Room curtains, which are designed to keep the temperature down in the wintertime.
Miller and his aides have faced mounting criticism for the use of neoprime materials in the White Houses offices.
A federal judge in March halted President Donald Trump’s ban on the use neopropes in the Cabinet room, citing an “inherent risk of injury” that could cause permanent damage to the decor and the Oval itself.
