    Donald Trump is one of the most talked-about people in the world, making us face-palm on the regular.

    The president of the United States never fails to be controversial, and from his greeting the Queen with a handshake and making friends with Putin to him getting trolled by JK Rowling and his controversial tribute to the late Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin (claiming she worked for him on multiple occasions), the past few months have been no exception.

    These cringey Donald Trump quotes were more depressing than surprising, but it has been his actions around the festivities that have really baffled us – and as it seems, the internet.

    In case you missed it, Donald or ‘President T’ as he has tried to dub himself, decided to bring a festive touch to a recent rally, by arriving Father Christmas style through a fireplace, accompanied by the soundtrack ‘Don’t Stop Believing’.

    And now, he seems to have outdone himself once again, this time with his Christmas portrait.

    It is tradition for the President and First Lady to release a Christmas portrait, and this year Donald seems to have decided to go overboard.

    The couple posed in the Cross Hall of the White House, surrounded by the largest selection of elaborately decorated sky-high Christmas trees we’ve ever seen. Not to mention, there were snowflake stencils shone on the ceiling.

    Yes, really.

    ‘Merry Christmas from President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump,’ the caption read. ‘@realdonaldtrump & @FLOTUS are seen Saturday, December 15, in their official 2018 Christmas portrait, in the Cross Hall of the White House in Washington, D.C.

    Well there’s some festive news we weren’t expecting.
