The first Christmas at the White House with the Trump's

The White House's 2017 nativity set

"The President, Barron, and I are very excited for our first Christmas in the White House", said the first lady.

This year, a White House holiday booklet states that visitors will be able to view the White House's movie theater "for the first time", The Hill reports.

Born in Slovenia, when it was part of Yugoslavia, Melania Trump is the first First Lady to be born overseas since Louisa Adams in 1825.

At the weekend Ivana Trump, the president's first wife, told a radio show she thought the president himself was missing the life he had previously led.

Here are a few of the highlights of the White House decorated for the holidays.

When you're the First Lady and you invite reporters to your home to tour your newly hung Christmas decorations, sometimes things can go awry.




"She was very clearly the one who said, 'Either run or don't run, ' " explained Roger Stone, a veteran Republican consultant and an early Trump adviser. But the latter dovetails with what seems to be Melania's No. 1 priority: shielding the 11-year-old (who speaks her native Slovenian) from the media glare.

"I don't think she was ever too insane about it".

"As has been stated on the record many times before, she is honoured by her role". "She is the one who pushed him to run just by saying run or do not run [but] I don't think she was ever too insane about it".

"She said, "It's not my thing. I don't think she thought it was going to happen".

"The decorations are up!" she tweeted. "Wishing you a Merry Christmas & joyous holiday season!"

First lady Melania Trump watches a ballerinas perform a piece from The Nutcracker among the 2017 holiday decorations in the Grand Foyer of the White House. The mother of Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric Trump was overheard at a party in 2015, talking about her ex-husband's presidential prospects.
