For the Second Year Straight, People Bash Melania’s Hard Work Spent on Stunning WH Christmas Decorations


For the First Family’s second year in the White House for Christmas, U.S. first lady Melania Trump shared her Christmas design, but the reveal also came with some backlash as people were horrified over red Christmas trees.

Days after Thanksgiving, Trump revealed rooms of the White House sparkling with ornaments, trees, and 12,000 bows with her “American Treasures” theme that honors a unique heritage of the U.S.

Watch the video below:

“This is a joyous time of year when we decorate the White House for the Christmas Season,” Trump said in a statement as she revealed the Christmas decorations.

“Our theme honors the heart and spirit of the American people. Thank you to the many volunteers and staff who worked hard to decorate the halls of the People’s House in Christmas cheer. On behalf of my family, we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.”

However, some people put aside the first lady’s honoring theme that shows the “heart and spirit of the American people.”

People bashed Trump’s decorations in a hall filled with red Christmas trees:

During the Christmas season in 2017, people also took aim at the first lady’s firm stance while watching ballerinas dance at the White House.

Watch the video below:

Trump’s holiday decorations in the hallway of the East Wing of the White House last year also drew criticism from people:

Despite the criticism, the first lady’s intentions and theme of her Christmas decorations were centered around “patriotism,” as it honored troops, national symbols, and represented U.S. states and territories.

One detail of Trump’s Christmas decorations included ornaments for her “Be Best” initiative, which encourages young children to follow their best path in life — the initiative is based on three pillars: well-being, social media use, and opioid abuse.

I think that it’s beautiful, just like our First Lady and that some people just have to use words as ugly as their hearts and souls. If you don’t like it, don’t look at it!

So many hateful people in this country. How sad for young children to be taught to be so hateful by the people who claim to be so empathetic.

I like the red trees. They are different and unique! Those that don’t like it, I think they should post how their tree and house is decorated and let us criticize them. Such hate over decorations…petty and stupid. Get over yourselves people! #FLOTUS!

I think by now Melania knows no matter what she does she will be criticized. I like them. Very unique.


Its stupid to criticize current FLOTUS Christmas decor. People were super nice about Michelle Obama’s Christmas decor. There was certainly NOT some fake war on Christmas made up because of how the previous administration celebrated the holiday.
