Some adjustments before departure. Next January, Donald Trump will give way in the Oval Office to Joe Biden, the 46th president-elect who defeated him in the presidential elections. If the current tenant of the White House has still not recognized his defeat, he is preparing to leave with his wife Melania. But before leaving the presidential residence, the latter insisted on making some arrangements for the following tenants, such as the renovation of the tennis court, but also the construction of a pavilion, the end of which it announced in a press release. .
“Thank you to all the talented craftsmen who made this project possible and to the generous supporters of the White House,” began the First Lady, who financed this work through private donations, and to add visibly without resentment: ” I hope this private space will function both as a place of recreation and gathering for future first families ”. A project launched obviously a few months ago, and for which Melania Trump absolutely insisted on remaining in the neoclassical style of the presidential residence. A way for her to leave a trace of her time in the White House, for the one who recently hosted the gigantic tree of the presidential residence for Christmas.

This other mythical place renovated by Melania Trump
However, this flag will not be the only mark that Melania Trump will leave in Washington. Indeed, the First Lady announced last August her intention to renovate the Rose Garden of the White House, a rose garden adjacent to the Oval Office and which has not been renovated since its creation 53 years ago by Jackie Kennedy. . A privileged place for large receptions given by previous presidents of the United States, Donald Trump made it the ideal place for his press conferences.
