United States First Lady Melania Trump was trolled brutally on social media earlier this week for White House's Christmas decorations. Twitter users lashed out at the former model for making the President's House look 'spooky'. It was especially the red cranberry covered trees that seemed to have irked internet users.
Melania had shared pictures of the White House adorned with decorations for the upcoming Christmas season. One of the hallways had red tree installations on both sides which resulted in a flood of memes on Twitter. However, the first lady stands by her creative side and does not think the decorations were bad.
Speculations about Melania being let down by her own decorations were rife when she did not attend the traditional press preview of the White House Christmas decorations. Her spokeswoman, Stephanie Grisham on Monday said Trump decided "to let the decorations speak for themselves."

When asked about red Christmas trees receiving flak on social media at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia, on Wednesday, Melania said, "We are in [the] 21st century and everybody has a different taste. I think they look fantastic." She added saying, "And you are all very welcome to visit the White House, the 'people's house'."

The decoration this year is based on the theme 'American Treasures'. The decorations have different meanings and importance attached to them. White House will host 100 open houses and receptions like last year. 30,000 visitors are expected to visit the White House on holiday tours. Talking at Christmas Melania had said, "This is a joyous time of year when we decorate the White House for the Christmas Season. Our theme honours the heart and spirit of the American people. Thank you to the many volunteers and staff who worked hard to decorate the halls of the People's House in Christmas cheer. On behalf of my family, we wish everyone a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year."
