Melania Trump responds to’misleading’ comments regarding the Rose Garden restoration at the White House.
MELANIA TRUMP has retaliated against criticism of her White House Rose Garden refurbishment.
After historian Michael Beschloss referred to her work on the famed Rose Garden as its “evisceration,” the former First Lady called his statements “misleading.” On the one-year anniversary of the garden’s completion, Mr. Beschloss posted a snapshot of the presidential grounds on Twitter.
“The White House Rose Garden was eviscerated a year ago this month, and this was the dismal outcome – decades of American history made to vanish,” he tweeted.
Mrs Trump’s administration responded to the historian’s remarks by implying that his shot was taken during the garden’s early years.
“@BeschlossDC has demonstrated his ignorance by providing a photo of the Rose Garden in its infancy,” the tweet stated.
“The Rose Garden is adorned with a vibrant and robust display of roses.
“His deception is dishonest, and he should never be trusted as a professional historian.”
A photo of a garden brimming with blooms and greenery was attached to the tweet.
Mrs Trump’s renovation of the historical landmark has been panned, and a petition to reverse the changes was launched in April.
Jackie Kennedy, the former First Lady, directed a substantial makeover of the garden, which was finished in 1962.

It was planned by the Trump administration to revert to its 1962 form.
More than 40,000 individuals signed the petition, which was published on Change.org.
The change, according to the appeal, “took away” Jackie Kennedy’s legacy.
“We want Jill Biden and Doug Emhoff to take on this and restore the Rose Garden to Jackie’s original design,” the statement continued.
