Melania Trump's White House Christmas decorations | Times2

Melania Trump unveiled this year's holiday decorations at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue and social media had a meme breakdown over a forest of crimson trees in the East Wing hallway.

One insider previously shared that Melania loves the winter holidays and that she had been planning this year's decorations and theme ever since August.

Bolling applauded the first lady for the "empathy and compassion" she has toward the issue of the opioid crisis.

First ladies, like their president husbands, have never been exempt from public criticism, however unfair or unkind.

But the event was aimed mostly at discussing the U.S. opioid epidemic and she said she had taught her son "what is right, what is wrong".

Yesterday evening, Melania was already back in Washington DC. with Donald for the National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony held by the National Park Service near the White House. "You're all very welcome to visit the White House".




The Liberty University audience applauded for the First Lady's comment before she proceeded by inviting everyone to the White House to see the decorations, which feature numerous Christmas trees including rows of trees in a deep red shade that many joked resembled blood.

"I think they look fantastic", Trump said.

She said: "I know when I started with Be Best and with social media initiative that I will be criticised but I will do what is right for the next generation".

Mrs. Trump was speaking at a Liberty University "town hall" about the opioid addiction epidemic.

Almost 48,000 people died previous year from overdoses involving opioids.

Over 72,000 American deaths were caused by opiate abuse in 2017.
