First Lady Deliciously Counters Incredible Christmas Tree Criticism (Video)
During a town hall that should have focused on the opioid epidemic, which FLOTUS called the "worst drug crisis in American history," Melania Trump laughingly countered the criticism that had emerged in the US mainstream media regarding her choice for ‘red’ Christmas trees in one hallway of the White House.
Giving a rare speech in a town hall meeting featuring participants like former Fox News star Eric Bolling, Demi Lovato's mother Dianna Hart and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen, Melania Trump clearly was in a stellar mood as she jokingly discussed her much-mocked Christmas décor (some compared it to a scene from ‘The Handmaid’s Tale), which she stoutly defended.

Melania then invited the large student audience to visit the White House. “I hope you will all come over to visit. In real life they look even more beautiful. You are all very welcome to visit the White House, the people’s house,” the first lady said to cheers.
On the media who had criticized her Christmas Decorations over the past few days, FLOTUS stated: “They would like to portray different stories and focus on unimportant stuff. I’m here to shine the light and focus on important stuff.”
