JILL Biden has been taunted over her "boring" White House Christmas decorations after fans spotted a picture of the Trumps on her tree.
The first lady unveiled the official White House Christmas decorations on Monday showing one tree with its fir covered in white doves bearing the names of US states.
Some Twitter users have already blasted the display as "boring" and asked “where are the colors?" with some even calling the tree "ugly."
Others said it was “refreshing” and "elegant" and praised Dr Biden for a "tree in that house that isn’t gaudy or macabre."
One notable decoration on the tree in the State Dining Room was the inclusion of a picture of Donald and Melania Trump.
The image was taken during Trump's time in the White House and shows the couple welcoming the arrival of the tree that year.
Online, commentators noted the tree is "covered with framed photos of the Bidens and former first families at the White House during holidays"
CNN reporter Kate Bennett added: "@FLOTUS pulled many from her personal albums, never before seen publicly."
Dr Biden also made sure to include pictures of the Obamas, the Kennedys, and the Roosevelts.
“Gifts from the Heart” is the theme of Joe Biden’s first White House Christmas.
The first lady faced an awkward moment as she read a Christmas story to children on Monday after one boy told her about his dead hamster.
She had invited the youngsters to the White House to read from her picture book when one told her his pet had got stuck under a cage door.
"Oh my word. Ok, let’s move on to happier things," Dr Biden replied.
There is a huge gingerbread White House that recognizes the efforts of frontline workers throughout the Covid-19 pandemic.
The executive mansion, including the Oval Office, was decorated with 41 Christmas trees, 2,000 yards of ribbon, and more than 10,000 ornaments while the Bidens were celebrating Thanksgiving.
Nearly 79,000 lights illuminate the trees, garlands, wreaths, and other holiday displays.
START OF THE HOLIDAY SEASON
The Bidens said: "As we celebrate our first holiday season in the White House, we are inspired by the Americans we have met across the country, time and again reminding us that our differences are precious and our similarities infinite."
The arrival of the White House Christmas tree marks the start of the holiday festivities.
Melania Trump’s final White House Christmas display dubbed “America the Beautiful” was toned down and featured an array of red, white, and gold decorations.
But, in 2018, the cone-shaped, crimson trees that lined the White House corridors went viral online as they were compared to car washes.
