Trump's Christmas card says 'Merry Christmas,' Obama's never did

Trump's Christmas card says 'Merry Christmas,' Obama's never did

"Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year" read the 2017 card signed by Donald, Melania and their son, Barron Trump.

No matter your opinion of Melania Trump, it's clear that her time in the White House so far has been marked by far more scrutiny than we're used to seeing visited upon a first lady.

Melania notably did not move into the White House immediately following her husband's inauguration, instead staying at Trump Tower in New York City through the summer, at a cost of millions of dollars to American taxpayers.

Children visiting the White House this year repeatedly told Melania, wearing a white dress, that she looked like an angel.

In addition, she is the only first lady to be a president's third wife, and the only one to pose nude for published photographs.




That included a retweet by Trump on Tuesday of a tweet by his wife in which she relayed that "the decorations are up!"

"Detail shot of the book volumes that form a Christmas tree in the library at the White House". As well as a traditional Nativity Scene, she has deployed more than 1,000ft of garland on staircases, a 18ft 6in Christmas tree with ornaments representing each U.S. state and territory in the Blue Room, a Christmas tree made of books in the library and a hallway of winter trees. When former social secretaries gave a luncheon to welcome Ms. Rogers earlier this year, one participant said, she surprised them by suggesting the Obamas were planning a "non-religious Christmas" - hardly a surprising idea for an administration making a special effort to reach out to other faiths. This is the tree that "Barron" is seen grabbing a book from in the animation above. The kitchen has already baked a total of 31,000 cookies, including 15,000 sugar cookies to keep visitors to the White House fed.

"First Lady Melania Trump watches a ballet performance in the Cross Hall as she tours Christmas decorations". The creepy hallway leads towards a decor-laden Christmas tree in another room.

The 350-pound (about 160-kilogram) gingerbread house this year offers a view of the White House from the south.

"The lunch conversation inevitably turned to whether the White House would display its crèche, customarily placed in a prominent spot in the East Room".
