A third added: “Merry Christmas, Mr and Mrs Trump. May the New Year bring positive change for all.”

The portrait comes after Melania revealed this year’s Winter Wonderland theme for the White House.

Posting a video to social media, the First Lady revealed the myriad of Christmas trees and decorations that up to 25,000 people will view while they visit the White House during the festive season.

But despite the fancy decorations and festive cheer of the White House, it appears Melania wants to celebrate Christmas somewhere far away.

“I would spend my holidays on a deserted island, a tropical island, with my family,” the Daily Mail reported the first lady saying at an event last week.
