The Group Hug Melania Had With Kids At The White House Will Warm Your Heart

Donald Trump and Melania Trump

First Lady Melania Trump wasted no time getting the White House into the holiday spirit, covering the residence in wreaths, printing out a festive booklet, and putting up several mistletoes which will inevitably force staffers to take precautions when walking through any doorway, lest someone who has perhaps bragged about grabbing women's genitals be lurking.

A spokesperson for Melania issued a statement to CNN's Kate Bennett, stating, "Once again part of the liberal media, this time Vanity Fair, has written a story riddled with unnamed sources and false assertions".

But we can't drag the First Lady too much: According to Vanity Fair, she never wanted the job.

If it isn't a role she coveted, Melania's urging that her husband decide once and for all whether to run for president in 2014 helped get her there. "I don't think she was ever too insane about it".

"Merry Christmas", the first lady said to the kids, as she embraced several of the children with a big group hug.

Ivana previously told ABC News that she would be a great first lady if she was still married to Trump-but has no desire to live such a public lifestyle.

"I don't think she thought it was going to happen", they added.

Since President Trump's presidential nomination, rumours have abounded about Ms Trump's apparent reluctance for the First Lady role. "It's Donald's thing, '" Stone was quoted as saying.

Ms Trump, who is nearly a quarter century younger than her husband, is known for being reclusive and media shy. It marks the first holiday season the Trumps will celebrate as the first family.

Sure, Melania still seems to wield more power in the White House than anyone thought, but that remains entirely through her influence on her husband, not via her own moves in the administration.

Paolo Zampolli, a former modeling agency boss who introduced the couple and is now a USA ambassador, said of Mrs Trump: "She knows what she wants".
