Santa Claus is going to have a devil of time to get Melania Trump what she wants for Christmas, thanks to her husband.
On Thursday, the first lady visited the Children's National Hospital in Washington, DC, to encourage the children, according to the Daily Beast. In addition to reading out loud The Polar Express answered some questions, including one from a girl named Sammy, who wanted to know what was on the first lady's Christmas list, according to Anita Kumar, White House correspondent for McClatchy Newspapers.
The list apparently does not mention things wrapped in gifts such as jewelry or clothing, but includes many global objectives.
That's a difficult list to fulfill at any time, but Melania Trump's husband is making Santa's job even more challenging this Christmas . Let's review the list:
& # 39; Peace in the world & # 39;
Where do we start? Just this week, President Donald Trump decided to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel, a movement that his own experts fear will inflame tensions in the Middle East, derail Israeli-Palestinian peace efforts and endanger diplomats and troops. Americans stationed in the Middle East and Muslim nations.
Trump also told the United Nations that it would "totally destroy" North Korea if its leader, Kim Jong Un, threatened the United States
and it is likely that the proposed border wall will not bring peace to his home , but it will damage relations with Mexico, an ally and one of the country's main trading partners. US  & # 39; Health & # 39;
Melania Trump can be a violin, but her husband is actively working to sabotage the Affordable Care Act, which could destabilize insurance markets and make coverage much more expensive or even unavailable to some small businesses and individuals , especially those with serious medical problems.
& # 39; Love & # 39;
We are not going to speculate about how the first couple are taken in private, but we will notice that there are several articles about body language among them.
And it's fair to say that many Americans – women, people of color, the LGBTQ community – do not feel the love of Trump administration policies that seem to say that their problems are not theirs.
& # 39; Friendliness & # 39;
This is almost too easy. For every time that Melania Trump has spoken out against bullying, there are at least 10 tweets in which the president has insulted someone else.
Hey, we'd love for the first lady to get her Christmas wishes. We just say that the big guy in the red suit has his work done for him.
No wonder he told a child that he would spend his ideal vacation "on a desert island," although he hastened to add "with my family."
