Trump wishes US Merry Christmas as President

Donald Trump Melania Trump Kathie Lee Gifford Dean Cain

"The video showed over a dozen occasions of the Obamas publicly sharing such wishes, which came shortly after Trump pledged that the USA will celebrate "'merry Christmas' again".

Co-hosts Dean Cain and Kathie Lee Gifford were with the president and first lady Melania Trump as the switch lit up the Christmas tree, adorned in blue and yellow lights.

President Trump has often reiterated that "We're gonna start saying Merry Christmas again!" and the White House decorations seem to back up the Trump family's commitment to celebrating the Christmas holiday.

It was in that first year that organizers officially deemed the tree the "National Christmas Tree".

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

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




New this year are wreaths hanging from the exterior of every window.

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

Among the Christmas, standards are an 18-by-6-foot (5.5-by-1.8-meter) Balsam fir from Wisconsin in the traditional spot in the Blue Room, decorated with ornaments bearing the seals of every state and US territory. The First Lady's Director of Communications Stephanie Grisham also sent out a tweet with the image of the hallway decorations that many are deeming eerie and spooky and better suited to Halloween than Christmas.

This year marks the 95th annual National Christmas Tree Lighting. "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".

During President Barack Obama's final Christmas in office, larger-than-life replicas of family dogs Bo and Sunny greeted visitors in the East Wing.
