Melania Trump kicks off White House Christmas with traditional decorations

Melania Trump kicks off White House Christmas with traditional decorations

First lady Melania Trump on Monday is set to unveil the White House Christmas decorations whose theme reflects 200 years of holiday traditions at the White House.

Grisham said that more than 150 volunteers from 29 different USA states spent over 1,600 hours installing the First Lady's vision of Christmas.

"The profile, which was written by Sarah Ellison and titled "'She Didn't Want This Come Hell Or High Water:' Inside Melania Trump's Secretive East Wing", says a longtime friend of the Trumps claimed Melania, 47, did not want to be first lady.

If it isn't a role she coveted, Melania's urging that her husband decide once and for all whether to run for president in 2014 helped get her there.

So what were some of the book titles Mrs Trump chose to use for the Christmas Tree in her family's first Christmas since Donald Trump became president?

That seems to be, of course, because Melania doesn't have any real interest in further moving in: However much she may have encouraged her husband to run, "this isn't something she wanted and it isn't something he ever thought he'd win".




"I think she understood he was going to be unhappy if he didn't run".

Stone continued, "She said, 'It's not my thing".

The First Lady seemed blissfully unaware of how freakish she looked standing there and eventually even cracked a smile.

"He always wanted to run", Stone told VF. The mother of Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric Trump was overheard at a party in 2015, talking about her ex-husband's presidential prospects. She chose as a pet cause cyberbullying, warning that all adults are "accountable" for it during a speech at the United Nations, where her husband blasted "Rocket man" North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un.

Elsewhere, the White House library features a tree which has been made up entirely of books. I have no idea why, but I am definitely first Trump lady.

She added, "You have to have thick skin".
