While her husband, Donald Trump, was the head of one of the most powerful states in the world, Melania Trump served as First Lady. A few months away from leaving the emblematic home of the presidents of the United States, she had decided to tackle the rose garden in the gardens of the White House. A symbolic place since it was the initiative of Jackie Kennedy. Donald Trump’s wife wanted to transform the premises in order to “meet the needs of the modern presidency”. His work was presented last year and strongly criticized. Melania Trump had decided in particular to dig up apple trees or to replace the colored tulips with pastel-colored roses.
A year later, historian Michael Beschloss added another layer by posting a message on Twitter this Saturday, August 7. He posted a photo of the rose garden which he commented thus: “The evisceration of the White House rose garden was completed a year ago this month, and here is the grim result: decades of American history is gone. ” The tweet, “liked” nearly 23,000 times, reached Melania Trump’s ears.
Melania Trump: “This misleading information is a disgrace”
The former first lady of the United States has decided not to let it go after this new attack. “Michael Beschloss has just proved his ignorance by showing a photograph of the rose garden in its early days, replied the wife of Donald Trump, this Sunday, August 8, on the social network. The Rose Garden is now filled with flowers in perfect health . This misleading information is a disgrace and proves that he cannot be trusted as a professional historian. ” She took care to share a photo of the very flowered garden to support her remarks.
. @ BeschlossDC has proven his ignorance by showing a picture of the Rose Garden in its infancy. The Rose Garden is graced with a healthy & colorful blossoming of roses. His misleading information is dishonorable & he should never be trusted as a professional historian. https://t.co/LU243SANF1 pic.twitter.com/PuVOSjxx5w
