While U.S. President Donald Trump fights for his political life in the midst of impeachment hearings, one unimpeachable fact is clear: His wife isn't letting anything cast a shadow over the White House at Christmas.

Our exquisite first lady, Melania Trump, declared late Sunday that this year's Christmas decorations at the White House would be infused with "The Spirit of America".

Melania's new design is a stark turnaround from her 2018 Christmas display, which sparked controversy with its heavy use of blood-red Christmas trees.

This year's design is much brighter, even in terms of Melania's outfit.

Chocolate kisses were given out during the 2019 Christmas preview at the White House.

This isn't the only mini White House on display, as towards the end of the video Melania adjusts tiny festive wreaths on a gingerbread White House, while bakers look on.

Author and designer Coleen Christian Burke has worked with several First Ladies to bring together their unique vision of Christmas at the White House.

The first Christmas was a dazzling sparkling winter wonderland theme, the second Christmas was the bold red trees that went viral on social media. I am delighted to share this lovely exhibit of patriotism for all to see, and excited for everyone to experience the beauty.

This year's gingerbread house features the White House and iconic American landmarks including the Golden Gate Bridge in California, the Space Needle in Seattle, Washington, South Dakota's Mount Rushmore, The Alamo in Texas, the Gateway Arch of St. Louis, the Liberty Bell in Philidelphia, and New York City's Statue of Liberty.

More than 225 volunteers flew in from around the country to help decorate the White House during Thanksgiving weekend.

Decorations in the public areas of the White House include 58 Christmas trees, more than 2,500 strands of light, more than 800 feet (244 meters) of garland and more than 15,000 bows.
