Melania Trump has been one of the more divisive figures in politics this last year. People either love her, or love to loathe her and, much like people feel about her husband, there doesn't really seem to be a middle ground. She made a move recently that has people once again sharply divided. After some discussions with experts, she came to a decision:
Trump: Day 340— Alamo_on_the_rise (@AlamoOnTheRise) December 27, 2017
-85th Day at a Golf Course
-111th Day at a Trump Property
-Lies About Getting "Back to Work"
-Says O-Care "Essentially" Repealed
-Repeats Fox Claims FBI "TAINTED"
-Has Sent 2,417 Tweets Since Day 1
-Rolls Back Animal Treatment Rule

But it turns out she does have a good reason. The tree has been dying for about 50 years now and is literally being held up by wires that are failing.
“Turns out Melania has been working with an arborist review board to save the Jackson Magnolia, but it is too far gone and cables holding it up are failing and the tree has become unsafe.”— 🇺🇸 (@SilverTrucking) December 27, 2017
So . . . the tree is in danger of falling & injuring people, and she is following the advice of multiple experts who have stated that it needs to come down - but you choose the headline to put Melania Trump in the worst possible light. Could your bias be any more blatant? https://t.co/YhEXO4J1S8— LifeIsSoStrange 🎄✨ (@DrMom25MA) December 27, 2017
Everything has a beginning and an end. I'm sad for Melania that the end of this tree happened now. Not her fault yet she's being blamed. So stupid.— Pam D (@lifebythecreek) December 27, 2017
"Melania Trump and Arborists make difficult decision to Remove 200 year old Tree on WH grounds" ... could be an interesting story about WH trees, but they went for hack job instead. Sad.— the elms (@westseattleelms) December 27, 2017
You are Sad @thehill . You know full well the only reason the tree is going to be removed is because it is dying and it’s limbs could easily harm someone if they fell. PS... Melania is going to keep seedlings from the tree, & nurse them until they can be replanted...— Susan👠🇺🇸 (@Susiejwp_susan) December 27, 2017
(1) Not only is #MagnoliaGate about media malpractice, it's about the EXCELLENT job successful self made businesswoman Melania Trump is doing as manager of all non-political WH matters (which a FLOTUS always is). She took expert advice on the tree bc #ScienceMatters y'all. pic.twitter.com/qMUgHd0oYs— Hurricane Watcher (@GodlessNZ) December 27, 2017
You know the world doesn’t like you when they start using headlines to take cheap shots at your wife. Especially when the tree in question is dying and was recommended cut down by the National Arboretum tree service. I actually feel bad for Melania. Slightly. https://t.co/0ea3CYApYl— LApunditry (@LApunditry) December 27, 2017
Fuck off with the clickbait stories about the old tree Melania “ordered” to be cut down. It’s old and hanging on by wires, literally. Nonstory. There’s actual things to hate the Trumps for like Russia.— Windy (@bug_1981) December 27, 2017
