Trump wishes US Merry Christmas as President

S National Christmas Tree Lightings Through the Years

The theme for this year is "Time-Honored Traditions", and included in that is a attractive nativity scene.

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.

Now President Trump has weighed in.

President Donald Trump has wished the people of United States of America Merry Christmas and said that the God's love is for all of humanity. The first lady unveiled the decorations at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue on Monday, while welcoming children of military families to the residence. "@WhiteHouse is ready to celebrate!"

Trump, who personally selected the decor, says she wanted to make the White House feel like home over the holidays.

Jeff Flake, a Republican Senator and critic of the President, said Mr Trump's disregard for "shared facts" is "dangerous to democracy". It is one that you have heard me speak about many times before.

The decorations continue a tradition that dates back decades.

Vasco Da Gama-Patna Express derailment: Why is Railways helpless on safety?
In August this year, 23 passengers were killed and 150 injured when the Utkal Kalinga Express derailed in Uttar Pradesh. In the fourth incident, the engine of Jammu-Patna Archana Express separated from the train twice near Saharanpur in UP.

"Mrs Trump's impeccable style is seen in the beautifully understated decorations and give a great nod to the First Families that came before them", Pickens said.

The first lady's office previewed the decorations for journalists on Monday after more than 150 volunteers from 29 states spent 1,600 hours during the long holiday weekend decking the White House halls.

The White House said she personally chose every detail of the decor.

The mother to Barron, one of Donald's five children, made many appearances throughout November in several Manolo Blahnik BB pump styles, as well as Victoria Beckham boots, and most recently from Louboutin she wore flats and a sleek pair of lace-up booties.

Some compared it to the warmer, more traditional red, white and green accents seen in the years when former President Barack Obama lived there.

The White House says 25,000 visitors are expected to take special Christmas tours of the building during the holidays.
