Melania Trump Never Thought He'd Win

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

No? Well, apparently that's exactly what a certain person in the White House envisions.

Much of the decorating happened while the Melania and her husband, President Donald Trump, were at Mar-a-Lago for Thanksgiving holiday.

The claims themselves came from a Vanity Fair profile of the First Lady published on Sunday.

Another person who agreed that presidential politics was never "Melania's thing" is Trump's first wife, Ivana Trump.

Taking to her official Instagram and Twitter pages, Donald's wife shared an incredible video of the lavish trees and decorations that have transformed the White House into a Winter Wonderland. "She was very clearly the one who said, 'Either run or don't run, '" says Roger Stone, who paraphrases Melania's message to her husband: "Your friends are exhausted of this striptease. 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". "I don't think she was ever too insane about it", Stone told the magazine.

Trump urges voters to pick Roy Moore instead of 'Liberal Jones'
A White House official clarified to The Times that Trump believes Moore should exit the race if the allegations are true. The move comes as allegations of sexual misconduct against the Alabama Republican continue to roil his campaign.

Melania had also grown exhausted of his dithering about whether to get involved in politics, a longtime Trump advisor told the magazine.

Following Mr Trump's victory, Mrs Trump, the president's third wife, stayed in NY with Barron, their 11-year-old son, before moving to Washington the following summer. "And I think she understood he was going to be unhappy if he didn't run".

"She said, "It's not my thing. Right now: flotus is seeing to every last detail here at the @WhiteHouse", she wrote". "Wishing you a Merry Christmas & joyous holiday season!"

In the Associated Press photo above, the first lady pauses, as a ballerina performs a piece from "The Nutcracker" behind her among the 2017 holiday decorations in the Grand Foyer of the White House.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump has sparked outrage at an event honouring Native American war veterans by using the term "Pocahontas".
