Melania Trump has dodged questions about her husband, Donald Trump, as she was spotted welcoming the Christmas Tree to the White House.

Looking noticeably blonder, the First Lady appears to have undergone a transformation in the past few weeks, after being pictured at Halloween with darker locks.

Melania was escorted down the White House steps by a soldier and beamed at waiting photographers as she inspected the tree.

“Merry Christmas,” she told reporters when they enquired about how her husband, Donald Trump, is doing since his election loss.

Wearing an oversized gingham coat with black boots and matching gloves, Melania posed with tree farm owners Dan and Anne Taylor.

It comes after reports Melania is 'counting the minutes until divorce' after her husband lost the 2020 US presidential election.

Omarosa Manigault Newman, who first met Trump when she appeared on The Apprentice in 2007, went on to become Assistant to the President and Director of Communications for the Office of Public Liaison and has written a book called Unhinged.

Omarosa has claimed the couple's 15-year marriage is over, according to the Mail on Sunday.

“Melania is counting every minute until he is out of office and she can divorce,” Omarosa reportedly said.

“If Melania were to try to pull the ultimate humiliation and leave while he's in office, he would find a way to punish her.”

US First Lady Melania Trump and President Donal Trump arrive for a wreath laying ceremony at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier for Veterans Day at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington, Virginia, on November 11, 2020. - US President Donald Trump made his first official post-election appearance Wednesday for what should be a moment of national unity to mark Veteran's Day, now marred by his refusal to acknowledge Joe Biden's win. The president visited Arlington National Cemetery, four days after US media projected his Democratic rival would take the White House.

Earlier this month, Twitter erupted over a photo of Melania and Donald Trump’s first official outing together since the president’s election loss.

The 74-year-old president and 50-year-old First Lady laid a wreath at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington National Cemetery for the observance of Veterans Day.

In the photos, Melania could be seen linking arms with a soldier, who was wearing a face mask and holding an umbrella over their heads.

Twitter blew up at the Trumps for not wearing masks at the wreath laying, with others being very intrigued by Melania ‘keeping her distance’ from Donald.
