Petition calls for Jill Biden to undo Melania Trump’s changes to White House Rose Garden
Former first lady criticized for replacing cherry trees ‘with a boring tribute to herself’

I doubt that even Donald liked it.


S E E D E D   C O N T E N T



An online petition calling for America’s first lady Dr  Jill Biden   and second gentleman  Doug Emhoff   to undo   Melania Trump ’s changes to the   White House   Rose Garden has been signed by 40,000 people.

The petition on Change.org says: “In 2019, Melania Trump had the cherry trees, a gift from Japan, removed as well as the rest of the foliage and replaced with a boring tribute to herself.”


It also says that the changes “ripped away” Jackie Kennedy’s legacy. “We want Jill Biden and Doug Emhoff to take this on and restore the Rose Garden to Jackie's original design,” it says.

The petition aims to get to 50,000 signatures.

The newly renovated White House Rose Garden was unveiled by Ms Trump in August last year when the United States was struggling to contain the number of Covid-19 cases and deaths.

I guess she wanted to reflect the total lack of joy and beauty in her life by stripping the Rose Garden bare.  

Every trace of color gone.

Ugly!

The Xmas stuff comes down after a few weeks but that garden was supposed to be permanent. I'm not really the gardener at our house. I just tell Mr Giggles what I want and where I want it and he complies. He has also added a lot of his own ideas like the lilly trees. that was an awesome idea

Oh, thank God someone is finally focusing on the important stuff!

Now we know for certain there are at least 40k Americans with far too much time on their hands.

I already explained that to you in post 2.2.1.

why do you keep asking the same question when the answer had already been provided to you?

I thought they were crab apple trees.  I believe the cherry trees are in the East and West Potomac parks and on the grounds of the Washington Monument.

Even if they are crab apples, they are still pretty when they bloom and provide food for wildlife

replaced with a boring tribute to herself.

I thought her tribute to herself was a mirror.
