    Only the outer walls, as the interior was completely gutted/rebuilt during the Truman administration.  There's a famous photo showing bulldozers working inside the gutted interior.  This was needed because the original building from John Adam's time was literally falling down.  The current structure was built with steel girders, and with plumbing and electricity installed as integral parts of the building, rather than as "add-ons" to the original building.

    100%. The only way it would ever even lose a fraction is if a soyboy socialist like bernie sanders were to be the president, as he would give it away to the lazy liberals who mooch off the government.

    Luckily, Both Trump and Biden are capitalist men who hate SJW's, so no matter who wins America is safe for another 5 years
