Do you think having Melania Trump living in the White House would be a huge improvement from the First Lady that is currently residing there?
As people see a Trump presidency becoming more realistic, they wonder about who their new first lady would be:
Few who have been to the White House come away unimpressed with its imposing splendour and sumptuous glamour – a fitting home for a man who is master of all he surveys.
