Melania Trump Stares Into a “Be Best” Ornament in Official White House Christmas Photos
Earlier this year, the first lady complained about her holiday duties in leaked tapes.
UPDATE 11/30/2020 at 10:15 a.m.: Melania Trump shared the official photos of her final Christmas decorations in the White House. On Instagram, the First Lady shared several photos of herself standing amongst the decor. One image shows her staring into a wreath filled with "Be Best" ornaments.
With Donald Trump set to leave the White House after losing the 2020 presidential race to Joe Biden, the Trumps are set for their final Christmas in the White House ahead of Inauguration Day in January — and Melania Trump reportedly plans to continue her tradition of decorating the White House for the holidays.
The recordings, obtained by the first lady’s former friend and aide Stephanie Winston Wolkoff were played on Anderson Cooper 360 last month, revealing that she didn't appear to be looking forward to doing "Christmas stuff."
"They say I'm complicit. I'm the same like him, I support him. I don't say enough I don't do enough where I am," Trump told Wolkoff in a recording made in 2018.
"I’m working my ass off at Christmas stuff," she continued. "You know, who gives a fuck about Christmas stuff and decoration? But I need to do it, right?"
Given the reactions to her prior decorations, perhaps she'll be extra glad that this year will be her swan song when it comes to "Christmas stuff."
