Early on Christmas morning President Trump and First Lady Melania posted a Christmas message that soon went viral, emphasizing a divided country as the comments rolled in.


President Trump canceled the holiday trip to Mar-a-Lago as the presidential couple ended up spending Christmas at the White House, amid the ongoing shutdown of the federal government.

Seated side by side, Melania and Donald took turns in delivering their joint Christmas message. Melania reminded all those watching of the purpose of Christmas while Donald spoke of how the American spirit shines during this time of year as he said:


“At this time of year, Christians celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. This wonderful spirit brings out the best in the American spirit.”

Melania added:

“During the Christmas season, we rejoice in God’s many blessings. We come together with family and friends to spread hope, love, compassion, cheer, and goodwill. We will remember the events of one holy night more than 2,000 years ago.”


In addition to their Christmas greeting, the Presidential couple also addressed American troops and received a message from reporters to which Donald responded:

“I can’t tell you when the government is going to be open. I can tell you it’s not going to be open until we have a wall.”


President Trump seems to have put his proverbial foot down and demands funds to build his promised wall. Negotiations stalled on Friday and caused the government to shut down, which left thousands of federal employees without a paycheck this Christmas.

But in spite of all the negative media coverage and personal attacks on both her and presidential husband Donald Trump, Melania continues to work on important issues.


With the Presidential couple’s second Christmas in the White House, members of the public did not hesitate to give their opinions on her sense of decorating, in what she attempted to make an elegant, festive and inviting environment in the White House.

There are fans that insist that Melania’s only crime is the fact that she is independent, strong, and won't be bullied, where others, in contrast, struggle to come up with something nice to say about the First Lady.


Looking back at Abraham Lincoln’s first inaugural address, he expressed his belief that people could trust in the better angels of their nature. However, examples of late show that politics in general encourage and appeal to the worst in people.

And with a nation in dire straights, it would be an excellent time to climb out of the mud pit and work towards solutions to serious problems facing the United States at the moment.

On Thursday, Melania continued with a long-standing tradition upheld by every first lady since Bess Truman, over 60 years ago.

Melania visited the Children’s National Hospital in Washington D.C. where she met with families and children that graduated from the program before she sat down to read, ‘Oliver, the Ornament’ to current patients.

The book forms part of her ‘Be Best’ campaign and spread an anti-bullying message.
