I doubt that even Donald liked it.
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.
