CNN Boycotts White House Christmas Party

U.S. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump attend the National Christmas Tree Lighting and Pageant of Peace ceremony on the Ellipse near the White House in Washington U.S

"I sort of feel we're doing that again", he said to an audience that included many of his family members.

"She really does look like an angel", they proclaimed.

"The decorations are up!" the first lady tweeted Monday morning. "As with many families across the country, holiday traditions are very important to us".

The White House unveiled its holiday decorations this week, issuing a video (below) of the Balsam fir trees sparkling with lights and ornaments adorning rooms throughout the White House.

"We want to wish everybody a Merry Christmas, a Happy New Year, have unbelievable holidays and we are now going to light a very lovely tree, and I'll ask our first lady to get ready and maybe we'll do a countdown from 10", the president said from the podium as Melania stood at his side, her hand ready on the switch.

Now President Trump has weighed in.

Now President Trump has vowed to take on the so-called war on Christmas.

It was in that first year that organizers officially deemed the tree the "National Christmas Tree".

There are obvious comparisons between the Obama's official Christmas cards and the Trumps' first Christmas card. In Trump's view, the move toward the use of the more inclusive "happy holidays" phrase minimized the Christian celebration. "The man who brought "Merry Christmas" back to our nation's capital - and you did, sir". "Now, as President of the United States, it is my tremendous honor to finally wish America and the world, a very MERRY CHRISTMAS!"

Meanwhile, the annual Nativity scene is also on display at the White House.

At last year's ceremony, President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle feted Kelly Clarkson, Eva Longoria, Garth Brooks and Trisha Yearwood, Marc Anthony and Chance the Rapper.
