Here's What Was Left Out of the White House's Christmas Card

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with reporters after meeting with Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell and House Speaker Paul Ryan at the White House in Washington

Ryan, who also said she thought the White House had "disdain" for her, often presses Sanders during briefings and caught public attention when the president appeared to suggest that she had close ties to the Congressional Black Caucus and Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

With less than a month to go for Christmas, US President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have adorned the Presidential residence according to the theme of Time-Honored Traditions.

Ryan, the American Urban Radio Networks Washington bureau chief and a political analyst for CNN, told The Washington Post she thinks the slight was a deliberate move: "I don't think I was overlooked".

When Sanders tweeted a picture of a chocolate pecan pie she made for Thanksgiving, Ryan took to Twitter and challenged her to prove she baked the dessert. I think they don't like me. The hate-filled Ryan then tweeted she "was getting a big laugh out of this". Trump has vowed to put "Christmas" back at the centre of the holidays. Trump regularly dismisses the media as "fake news", including in a tweet Monday. Candy-covered wreaths hang from every window and a USA flag flies from its sugary housetop.

In fact, Trump's adversarial take on the press led CNN to boycott the White House Christmas party this year.

"In light of the President's continued attacks on freedom of the press and CNN, we do not feel it is appropriate to celebrate with him as his invited guests", a spokesman for the network said.

Mrs Trump shared this classy video, showing the planning and execution of her white-and-silver dominated festive designs, and brought in some ballerinas to add some extra Nutcracker-esque whimsy to proceedings.

In 2017, that Christmas spirit is now on full display at the White House.

"And what CNN's decision to do - make sure that these individuals, who really probably look forward to going, can't go anymore", Spicer told Fox News' "Hannity". Questioning the baker's credibility, Ryan asked for receipts by tweeting, "Show it to us on a table". Ryan said she wouldn't believe it unless she saw Huckabee Sanders actually bake it.

That greeting is a change from the years when Barack Obama and his family were living in the White House.
