During Barak Obama’s time in the White House, he tried to ignore Christmas as much as possible despite the fact that he claimed to be a “Christian.” Now that Donald Trump is preparing to spend his first Christmas in the White House, however, it’s clear that this holiday is going to be far different than it has been during the last eight years.
The Inquisitr reported that Melania Trump just announced that she is moving up the date of a time-honored White House tradition so that she and her family can spend Thanksgiving weekend in Florida. This year, the White House Christmas tree will be delivered a few days before Thanksgiving, rather than after. This year’s tree is a 19 1/2-foot Balsam fir that will be presented to the first lady by Jim and Diane Chapman, the owners of Silent Night Evergreens in Endeavor, Wisconsin.
The Chapmans won the 2017 National Christmas Tree Association contest, meaning they were given the chance to bring the tree to the White House.
“The size and the shape, the color, great trunk. It’s going to fill the room. It’s going to look awesome in the Blue Room and it’s good all the way around,” said White House Grounds Superintendent Dale Haney. “The whole thing is a front and I can just see it make the holiday season for the White House.”

During his presidential campaign, Trump promised that as president, he would make sure that we start saying “Merry Christmas” again and that we stop taking religion out of the holiday. No matter how “triggered” liberals get during this Christmas season, Trump will NOT let them for get that CHRISTMAS really is right around the corner.
“They don’t use the word ‘Christmas’ because it’s not politically correct,” Trump said last month. “We’re saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”
“Our religious liberty is enshrined in the very first amendment in the Bill of Rights,” he had previously said. “The American founders invoked our creator four times in the Declaration of Independence. Benjamin Franklin reminded his colleagues at the Constitutional Convention to begin by bowing their heads in prayer. I remind you that we’re going to start saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”
God bless you, Donald Trump!
