No One Can Get Over The White House's Christmas Decor This Year

  • Christmas Trump

And while we still have time to stock up on candles and decorations, preparations at the White House has started with all gusto.

First Lady Melania Trump has unveiled this year's White House Christmas decorations, choosing the theme "Time-honoured traditions" - a nod to 200 years of traditions at the executive mansion - for her design aesthetic.

"I don't think she was ever too insane about it". But the latter dovetails with what seems to be Melania's No. 1 priority: shielding the 11-year-old (who speaks her native Slovenian) from the media glare.

The White House said Mrs Trump chose every detail of the decor and did a final check late Sunday after returning from the family's Thanksgiving at their estate in Palm Beach, Florida, according to Associated Press.

"He always wanted to run".

The pair broke with tradition by living at Trump Tower in NY since the inauguration so that Barron, 11, could finish the school year.

In a statement, the office of Melania Trump blasted the story by journalist Sarah Ellison as "shameful" and "riddled with unnamed sources and false assertions". "She is the one who pushed him to run just by saying 'run or do not run.' I don't think she was ever too insane about it... I don't think she thought it was going to happen".

Trump invited a group of children from a Washington area military base to help her add more holiday cheer to the White House. She said, "It's not my thing, it's Donald's thing".

First lady Melania Trump watches a ballerinas perform a piece from The Nutcracker among the 2017 holiday decorations in the Grand Foyer of the White House.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump has sparked outrage at an event honouring Native American war veterans by using the term "Pocahontas". This is so cool right?' the first lady later asked when walking into the Red Room, which was decorated with gingerbreads and sweets.

"This isn't something she wanted and it isn't something he ever thought he'd win", one longtime Trump friend said of Melania's role.

If I'm president, you're going to see "merry Christmas" in department stores, believe me.
