First lady Melania Trump has opted for a more traditional decor for her family's first Christmas in the White House, adding a few new touches to the standards.

To cheers from the audience, Mr. Trump declared, "Now as the president of the United States, it's my tremendous honor to finally wish America and the world a very Merry Christmas". Nevertheless, Melania has been a busy bee decorating the White House for Christmas. Given President Donald Trump's relationship with the press, CNN has chose to boycott the event, saying in a statement to Politico, "CNN will not be attending this year's White House Christmas party".

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas at the White House.in an interesting way. Mrs. Trump has also invited children and students from a nearby military base to come see the decorations and work on holiday arts and crafts.

The family Christmas card is framed and on display. For example, he routinely makes the point that we should use the more traditional greeting of "Merry Christmas" over the politically correct "Happy Holidays". Trump has vowed to put "Christmas" back at the centre of the holidays.
