Melania Trump set to unveil White House Christmas decorations

  • White House Christmas

The White House previewed the decorations for the news media on Monday. "I don't think she thought it was going to happen". For the always inscrutable Melania Trump, it was a moment to stand conspicuously still, emoting absolutely nothing, as the dancers twirled through a beloved holiday classic.

Sure, Melania still seems to wield more power in the White House than anyone thought, but that remains entirely through her influence on her husband, not via her own moves in the administration.

Following Mr Trump's victory, Mrs Trump, the president's third wife, stayed in NY with Barron, their 11-year-old son, before moving to Washington the following summer.

Melania Trump never wanted to be first lady and only urged President Trump to run for office out of exasperation at his constantly toying with the idea, according to an exclusive Vanity Fair interview. "She is the one who pushed him to run just by saying run or do not run [but] I don't think she was ever too insane about it".

She said: "I think he's missing a little bit of his old life".

"As a magazine tailored to women, it is shameful that they continue to write salacious and false stories meant to demean Mrs Trump, rather than focus on her positive work as first lady and a supportive wife and mother".

Ohio State comes back to down MI
Ohio State won the game, 31-20, scoring 17 points in the second half to defeat the Wolverines for the sixth consecutive time. Haskins was off the mark with his pass on third-and-five, but a defensive hold gave the Buckeyes an automatic first down.

Singing a similar tune to her predecessor, Melania Trump warned, 'A lot of sugar right?' as she helped the group assemble gumdrop Christmas trees.

Overall, it was quite a classic, safe approach to the First Lady's first year decorating the White House for Christmas. This is so cool right?' the first lady later asked when walking into the Red Room, which was decorated with gingerbreads and sweets.

If I'm president, you're going to see "merry Christmas" in department stores, believe me.

The VF article comes a month after Melania's First Lady title was being debated by Donald Trump's first wife, Ivana, who said during the press tour of her new memoir, Raising Trump, that she's "basically first Trump wife" and the "first lady".

Donald Trump didn't appear in the clip.
