The Trump lights the lights of the National Christmas Tree

The president, Donald Trump, and the first lady, Melania Trump, fulfilled today the annual tradition of turning on the lights of the National Christmas Tree, located in front of the South facade of the White House.

Trump gave the honor of the ignition to his wife Melania, who pressed the switch after a countdown initiated by the president and seconded by the assistants to discover a tree lit in green and red.

“Merry Christmas!” Exclaimed Trump after dedicating a few words to those affected by the “devastating forest fires, destructive hurricanes and terrible tragedies” that have plagued the United States. in the last months.

“This is the United States, we are the best in the world and nobody is even close,” he said.
Around the large National Christmas Tree were installed, as usual, 56 smaller trees whose ornaments designed school children dedicated to each of the 50 states of the Union and the territories, including Puerto Rico.

Before the ceremony in the cold night of Washington, where the thermometers were 1 degree Celsius, the first lady defended the red Christmas trees that she had installed inside the White House and that generated some controversy.

“We are in the 21st century and everyone has a different taste, I think they look magnificent, live, they look even more beautiful,” said Melania Trump to the journalists who accompanied her. (EFEUSA) .-
