Melania Trump fires back at critics of her nightmarish red Christmas trees: ‘I think they look fantastic’

As first lady, one of Mrs Trump's jobs is to decorate the presidential homes for the holiday season, leading the annual team of White House staff and volunteers to prepare the "People's House" for Christmas.

"I teach him what is right, what is wrong, and I will always tell him that drugs, they could be very unsafe and they could mess up your mind and body", Trump said. "And you are all very welcome to visit the White House, the people's house", Melania Trump said.

But the first lady invited all the haters to come check out the decorations in person.

The ceremony was held on the Ellipse outside the White House on Wednesday, the grounds sporting their best holiday décor as hundreds gathered for the annual event.

Almost 48,000 people died past year from overdoses involving opioids.

Trump encouraged students to "be courageous enough to ask" if someone needs help "or strong enough to stand with them as they fight through the disease". The other two areas of focus are the health and well-being of children, and avoiding the pitfalls of social media, including cyberbullying and negativity online.

Trump then joined conservative television personality Eric Bolling for a panel discussion and took a few questions from the audience.

Vice said that "Melania Trump's Christmas from Hell" pays "tribute to our country's unique heritage of anguish and pain".

"I'm here to shine the light on important stuff. the next generation, our children."

Critics have said the comment was similar to her husband Donald Trump's approach. And what does the media - I'm telling you, I can't believe this - what are they hung up on with the first lady right now?

Mrs. Trump was speaking at a Liberty University "town hall" about the opioid addiction epidemic.
