Something Bizarre Happened After the Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony at the White House

President Donald Trump abandoned his protective press pool after the Christmas lighting ceremony at the White House and sped away in his motorcade, according to social media reports.

Anita Kumar, the White House correspondent for McClatchy, tweeted about being left behind in the protective pool and how unprecedented and bizarre it is. . .

The 96th annual Christmas tree lighting ceremony apparently went off without a hitch, but the president’s motorcade left hastily afterward. The White House provided no details as to why the president was whisked away to the White House.

Trump led the audience assembled in a countdown until first lady Melania Trump flipped the switch to turn on the lights on the Christmas tree.

Steve Herman, the White House bureau chief for The Voice of America, explained that the White House works with the Secret Service in order to provide the protective pool an opportunity to cover the president from the motorcade.
