The portrait shows President Trump dressed in a tuxedo holding hands with the First Lady in an elegant sleeveless Delpozo dress and a pair of black pumps, standing under the Presidential seal and next to Christmas trees covered with fake snow.
In November, FLOTUS also tweeted out the Christmas decorations at the White House, which she personally selected herself. The theme for this year’s decorations is “Time-Honored Traditions.”
'Merry Christmas from President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.' is also the president's way of showing that he is keeping his campaign pledge of saying 'Merry Christmas again.'
