As Melania and Barron Trump have just moved into the White House, what changes and updates will Melania make as she goes back to living with Donald Trump again? Now that the president is allegedly being investigated for possible obstruction of justice and politics seem so much darker, Americans are looking to Melania Trump for something a little happier and less depressing,
The internet has ideas about the improvements that Melania Trump might bring to the White House, and there is even the Twitter hashtag #MelaniaUpdatesTheWH so users can post ideas and funny memes. One Twitter user posted that Melania may be creating “a secret room to get away from her husband,” as Uproxx report.
Other users also suggested similar ideas about Melania Trump trying to escape from the president, which included building an “entrance to another dimension,” placing a “Rita Hayworth poster over an escape tunnel,” and putting her own bedroom “200 miles away” from the president’s.
But with all of the internet joking aside, what will Melania Trump really be doing now that her new home is the White House? Will she be making any major changes to her living environment or even just cosmetic ones to the White House and how will her role as First Lady be changing?

It has been suggested that Melania Trump will most likely start her new White House journey by adding new employees to serve the East Wing. At the moment, Melania actually has just a small number of personal advisers. She has Social Secretary Anna Cristina Niceta Lloyd, Chief of Staff Lindsay Reynolds, Communications Director Stephanie Grisham, and her Senior Adviser, Stephanie Winston Wolkoff.
Town and Country Magazine note that there aren’t actually any requirements when it comes to the number of employees that can be hired in the East Wing of the White House, but other First Ladies have had many more employees than Melania Trump does. For instance, Michelle Obama had 24, Laura Bush hired a team of 18 to help her out, and Hillary Clinton had 19. Given that having only four advisers is unprecedented when it comes to First Ladies, Americans can expect Melania to hire more East Wing employees at the White House.
Melania Trump is also allegedly not pleased with some of Donald Trump’s associates at the White House and may start to exercise some influence on the president’s sphere of friends and employees. One source has said that Sean Spicer was one person who was not on Melania’s good list, and she had harbored concerns about him.
“She was really concerned that Spicer was not doing a good job, that they were not proactive in defending the president. The leaks bother her. She believes a lot of people are more interested in serving themselves than him.”
As far as decorations go, we do know that Melania Trump has hired a new interior decorator for the White House by the name of Tham Kannaliham. Melania has said that she wanted a decorator who could make the White House really feel like home, and she believes that Kannaliham is the perfect person to do this for her, as Town and Country Magazine reported.
“Mrs. Trump has a deep appreciation for the historical aspects of the White House and with Tham’s traditional design and expertise, they are focusing on a seamless integration of elegance and comfort into where the President, the First Lady, and Barron will be spending their family time and calling their home.”
Whatever new changes that Melania Trump will be making to the White House with the help of interior decorator Tham Kannaliham are being kept super secret. Kannaliham keeps a very low profile with a private Instagram account, and Melania allegedly wants to keep new decorating plans a secret until they are completed.
What new changes do you think Melania Trump should make now that she’s living in the White House?
