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.

Trump has even been critical of President Barack Obama's approach to the holiday, and many people have been pointing out how the Obama's Christmas cards read "happy holidays" instead of "merry Christmas". As president, Trump repeated the promise yet again in October 2017 at the Value Voters Summit in Washington, D.C., proclaiming, "We're saying "Merry Christmas" again".

Trump has repeatedly taken shots at Obama for not wishing the country a "Merry Christmas", both before and after he took office.

Jeff Flake, a Republican Senator and critic of the President, said Mr Trump's disregard for "shared facts" is "dangerous to democracy".

Donald Trump continues to peddle conspiracy theories to aides and senators behind closed doors, according to reports.

The 350-pound (160-kilogram) gingerbread house in the State Dining Room offers a view of the White House from the South Lawn, with wreaths on every window and a US flag flying from its sugary rooftop.

In a video the First Lady posted on Twitter, viewers can see the nativity scene, which shows Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus with a crown, as well as other stunning Christmas decorations. The White House said Mrs Trump chose every detail of the decor and did a final check late Sunday after returning from the family's Thanksgiving at their estate in Palm Beach, Florida.

Mrs. Trump's signature Christmas includes 71 wreaths, 53 Christmas trees, more than 18,000 lights, more than 12,000 ornaments, more than 3,100 yards (about 2800 meters) of ribbon and more than 1,000 feet (300 meters) of garland, the White House said. There is also a gingerbread house, candy, and arts and crafts for the more than 25,000 visitors expected to pass through during the holiday season. "It's one that we've heard and we speak about and we dream about and now, as the president of the United States, it's my tremendous honor to now wish America and the world a very Merry Christmas".
