White House Christmas Tree Features Tribute To Military

Ryan, a CNN political analyst who has said journalists of color are considered the "opposition" to the Trump administration, said it was the first time in her career as a White House reporter she had been excluded from the guest list.

MELANIA TRUMP showcased her vision of Christmas as she unveiled the White House's decorations yesterday - but her choices soon became mocked on Twitter.

Some readers, however, criticized President Trump for his past comments and behavior towards Gold Star families and military personnel like prisoner of war and Senator John McCain.

"The decorations are up!" the first lady tweeted Monday morning.

Along with the moving tribute, the White House decor also offered a large gingerbread house, which Newsweek reported was "not meant for eating", according to the White House. "@WhiteHouse is ready to celebrate!"

President Donald Trump has long battled against the news media and has even gone so far as to call them an "enemy of the people". "On behalf of my husband and Barron, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and joyous holiday season", said the first lady.

April Ryan, the White House correspondent for American Urban Radio Networks, speculated during an interview that members of the Trump administration didn't invite her to their Christmas party because they didn't like her.

The theme for the White House decorations this year is "Time-Honored Traditions".

The decorations were designed by the first lady in honor of the 200 years of holiday traditions that have occurred at the presidential residence.

"Beautiful job of decorating our handsome White House".

"Are you the first lady?" asked one little boy, who then moved in for a hug. 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. Parties and other events - sometimes two a day - will continue for the next several weeks. More than 25,000 visitors are expected to tour the White House for the holidays and the kitchen is ready: a total of 31,000 cookies have been baked, including 15,000 sugar cookies.
