Donald Trump delivered a short speech at the White House Christmas tree lighting, but fans were worried about his safety due to several laser dots on his body.


The event took place on Wednesday night, November 28, 2018, and while the President of the United States was speaking, his supporters spotted the dots moving on his face and torso.

As reported by Newsweek, Trump was never in danger, despite the several concerned voices wondering if there was a sniper aiming at the American leader.

These concerns were made even worse by Tom Roussey, a journalist working for ABC affiliate station WJLA-TV, who took to Twitter to share a photo of what appeared to be crosshairs on Trump's back.

Some of the President's supporters immediately jumped to conclusions and started imagining all sorts of scenarios regarding plots to assassinate him, always with former U.S. President John F. Kennedy in mind.



The tweet was later deleted and Roussey deeply apologized for posting the picture, which turned out to be a photo of the image on the network's camera's lens.

According to the journalist, he was hoping to snap a nice photo of Trump sitting in attendance, but his phone camera couldn't zoom in properly, which was why he photographed the lens. The cross in the middle was just a part of the camera.


Roussey added that he never deletes his tweets, but made an exception with this one because he realized how badly people reacted to it. Plus, he wanted to avoid passing any possible bias image.



The whole situation was nothing but a misunderstanding and didn't spoil the success that was the Christmas tree lighting. But while people appreciated the beautiful tree, the same can't be said about the ones inside the White House.

The First Lady, Melania Trump, opted to decorate the halls with all-red trees and people online couldn't help but make fun of them, with some saying that they seem to belong in the classic horror movie "The Shining."
