#TBT Christmas at the White House

From Trump telling a 7-year-old Santa doesn't exist to Nancy Reagan kissing Mr. T — here are some of the White House's most memorable Christmas moments. 🎄

74 Years of Christmas at the White House

December 1945

On the White House lawn, for the first time in 4 years the community Christmas tree is lighted again. As several thousand stands in the snow to watch, President Truman presses a button and Christmas officially comes to Washington.

December 1957

President and Mrs. Eisenhower arrived for the annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony, where they are joined by vice president and Mrs. Nixon. Before a crowd of thousands, the stage bears the traditional message of the season, and President Eisenhower delivered his own as he tells the nation that world peace is up to Russia.

    Lmfao typical Democrat narrative. We never heard what the girl on the other side of the phone said. The Democrats just took it hearsay and that was good enough. Kind of like the impeachment garbage they used. Democrats destroy everything they touch. Look at the Democrat controlled towns and cities. That says enough.

    Just goes to show how anti Trump supporters like to twist what he says. I never heard him tell that kid Santa doesn't exist. I guess I'll be accused as a Trump supporter just because I defended what he said. Oh well... Have a Merry Christmas or Happy Hanukkah
