Melania Trump on Wednesday continued her stated mission to discuss the ongoing opioid crisis with young people by participating in a town hall with college students at Liberty University, a faith-based college in Lynchburg, Virginia.

A video released by Trump through Twitter on November 26 shows the First Lady walking through the newly decorated White House.

Trump and "Fox & Friends" co-host Ainsley Earhardt toured some of the most iconic locations in the presidential residence, and the first lady offered personal thoughts on what the display means to her.

"We are in 21st century, and everybody has different taste", she said.

First Lady Melania Trump is on the defense again.

"Crossing in to the Grand Foyer and Cross Hall, patriotism, the heart of America, takes center stage with more than 14,000 red ornaments hanging from 29 trees", according to the White House.

Melania Trump thinks the media should focus on important issues instead of wasting time mocking Christmas decorations.

Mexico Says Migrants Have Right To Seek US Asylum, Rejects Closing Border
Mexico's National Migration Institute reported that 98 migrants were being deported after trying to breach the U.S. border. Now, Sinclair - which covers roughly 40 percent of American households, many in the South and Midwest - is at it again.

Pics and even a clip of Melania walking through the newly decorated house were shared on the official White House Twitter.

But the first lady invited all the haters to come check out the decorations in person.

This year the theme is either American Treasures or The People's House, depending on who you believe. In real life, they look even more lovely.

The First Lady herself shrugged off the jokes yesterday, saying that tastes differ.

Her statement can be heard in a video obtained by Reuters and recorded during her appearance as part of her anti-opioid addiction and cyberbullying initiative Be Best initiative.

As the crowd erupted in applause, Trump added: "In real life, they look even more lovely". "So next generation can be respectful and kind and also sometimes you need to fight back".
