Melania Trump Stands By Her White House Christmas Decorations

First lady Melania Trump at Liberty University

Trump's main focus with the opioid crisis is neonatal abstinence syndrome (NAS), where babies experience withdrawal from drugs they were exposed to in the womb - the first lady has gone to hospitals to visit mothers and children suffer from the opioid crisis.

She also spoke about making time with the President. Seeing as the decorations always have a theme, it is possible that last year's was: "No ballerinas were harmed in the making of this video".

This year's theme, "American Treasures", honors the unique heritage of America and features elements echoing back to American history and all 50 states. The excitement started on November...

The first lady offered a gracious response, replying, "We are in [the] 21st century and everybody has a different taste".

The First Lady defended her choice of decor when speaking at Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia on Wednesday.

Mrs. Trump said the decorations chosen for "the people's house" "look fantastic" and "even more beautiful" in person.

But if Trump thought this year's decorations would escape ridicule, she's wrong.

Addressing the opioid epidemic is a pillar of the first lady's Be Best youth initiative.

As the crowd erupted in applause, Trump added: "In real life, they look even more attractive".

In the interview with Eric Bolling, a Fox News contributor who lost his son to a drug overdose, Trump also discussed her Be Best campaign, which strives to help at-risk youth.

Melania Trump was wearing her coat instead of draping it over her shoulders - one of her signature fashion moves - in the 35 degree weather.

She will later take questions from the town hall audience of Liberty University students, her spokesperson Stephanie Grisham told CNN.
