Melania Trump: I Would Spend The Holidays On A 'deserted Island' With My Family If I Could

The Trump family is getting ready to celebrate its first Christmas in the White House, but how exactly is first lady Melania Trump putting her own touch on this year's decor?

After a whirlwind few weeks preparing the White House for Christmas, from decorating the executive mansion to lighting the National Christmas tree, Melania Trump said that if she could spend the holidays anywhere in the world, it would be on “a deserted island, a tropical island.”

Visiting the Children's National Hospital in Washington, D.C. on Dec. 7., an annual tradition observed by first ladies through the last 60 years, Trump made the surprising admission while taking questions from pediatric patients, the New York Post reports.

I was so grateful at the opportunity to spend time with the children and their families yesterday, and want to thank the medical staff @Childrenshealth for their lifesaving work. pic.twitter.com/dkQvUM3RMl

FIRST LADY MELANIA TRUMP TROLLED OVER WHITE HOUSE CHRISTMAS DECORATIONS, OUTFIT

“If you could spend the holidays anywhere in the world, where would you go?” a 10-year-old boy named Andy asked. “I would spend my holidays on a deserted island, a tropical island, with my family," Trump replied with a laugh.

Predictably, the Twitterverse exploded in commentary, some likening it to a Christmas wish or episode of “Gilligan’s Island”, while others defended her desire for a break as justifiable.

Melania Trump said her Christmas wish would be for her family to go to a "deserted island".... I have a feeling a lot of Americans are wishing for the exact same thing.pic.twitter.com/bv5uXTgpI3

For better or worse, FLOTUS will likely have to bundle up and wait it out in the District, perhaps penciling in a warm getaway during the New Year.
