In 1973, he got one devoted to Watergate.

Two chess sets? Impressive! I won if there’s a Trump chess set available…

Hm. When it comes to politics and chess, I prefer the musical.

(No, really. I do play chess and I do sing opera, and Chess has little to do with the game and everything with politics, and is musical rather than opera - but I really enjoyed it.)
