First Lady Melania Trump revealed on Wednesday that while former Special Counsel Robert Mueller was testifying on his investigation into Russian interference during the 2016 presidential election, she was officially kicking off the White House’s Christmas preparations.
“#Christmas planning has begun in the East Wing at the [White House],” the first lady announced on Twitter. “I’m looking forward to sharing our final vision for this unique tradition in the coming months.”
The tweet included four photographs of Trump donning a cream-colored dress as she seemingly reviewed fabric swatches and sample decoration options for the holiday décor.
The first lady began planning Christmas at the White House for the 2018 holiday season in July of that year as well; however, Trump’s joyful Christmas planning now comes in stark contrast to the heated hearings that were being simultaneously held in the House Judiciary Committee and House Intelligence Committee on Capitol Hill.
