In a surprising turn of events, Former First Lady Melania Trump has announced the launch of a Christmas decorations collection, despite her prior statement of “who gives a f**k about Christmas stuff and decoration?”

Trump's Fraudulent Activities

This announcement coincides with a judge’s ruling that her husband, Donald Trump, engaged in fraudulent activities by significantly inflating the value of his assets and exaggerating his net worth.

Financial documents presented in a civil case accuse Trump of inflating his net worth by anywhere from $1.9 billion to $3.6 billion annually between 2011 and 2021.
