MELANIA TRUMP’s patriotic red Christmas Trees have been ruined by tourists who have been breaking off the artificial branches and stealing them as mementos.
The First Lady’s red Christmas Trees have drawn thousands of visitors to the White House over the festive period for tours of the East Wing. Mrs Trump unveiled the decorations after Thanksgiving on Monday, November 26. But amongst the thousands of visitors, disrespectful thieves have inundated Mrs Trump’s home.
Visitors have broken off the artificial branches and pocketed them as mementos.
Over 40 of the Christmas Trees line the colonnade which connects the East Entrance of the White House to the East Garden Room.
Thousands of tourists, who have booked up to three months in advance, come to the White House every morning for time tours.
The President and First Lady also hosted two dozen holiday parties for Members of Congress, administration officials, service members and friends.
