Just like Donald Trump showed up at the White House and made it his mission to undo President Obama-era politics, Americans expect President #JoeBiden and First Lady Jill Biden to clap back and flex the same muscle.
The famous Rose Garden of the White House is the subject of a new petition that has received more than 40,000 signatures from people calling for Jill Biden and second gentleman Doug Emhoff to reverse the changes made by the previous first lady, Melania Trump.
The petition that was published on change.orgAccording to Business Insider, the couple are asking to restore the garden changes made by Melania Trump last August.
The garden was often used by presidents such as Trump and Biden to hold addresses and speeches. It was also the place of an infamous super spreader event last year where several members of the Trump administration appeared to be infected with the coronavirus.
The language in the petition reads: “In 2019, Melania Trump had the cherry trees, a gift from Japan, and the rest of the leaves removed and replaced with a boring homage to herself.”
It continues: “Jackie’s legacy was torn away by Americans who remembered everything the Kennedys meant to us. We want Jill Biden and Doug Emhoff to take care of this and restore the rose garden to Jackie’s original design. “
For historical reasons, beloved First Lady Jackie Kennedy oversaw a major renovation of the Rose Garden at the White House, which was completed in 1962. Melania Trump introduced significant changes to the design of the garden in August last year.
It would not be outside of Jill Biden’s jurisdiction to do so, but we need to see if this is a high priority for the first lady. We’ll keep you up to date.
