First Lady Melania Trump will continue her Christmas decorating duties this year as the classic White House tradition carries on. 

A spokesperson for the first lady confirmed to TMZ that the annual tradition will stay put despite her apparent disdain for the project. 

Former first ladies have been decorating 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue for decades, however, when Trump was originally tasked with the job she seemed reluctant to complete her duties.

Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, who wrote the book "Melania and Me," secretly recorded conversations with Trump in the summer of 2018 after Wolkoff left her role as an adviser, CNN reported. The recordings show the first lady expressing frustration over media perception on major issues like the administration's child separation policy.

The recordings also included Trump expressing dismay at her role in decorating and promoting the White House during Christmas time, while she was being criticized for not doing more meaningful work. 

"I'm working my a-- off with the Christmas stuff that, you know, who gives a f--- about Christmas stuff and decorations but I need to do it, right?" Trump is heard saying.

"And then I do it, and I say I'm working on Christmas and planning for Christmas," Trump continued. "And they say, 'What about the children that are separated?' Give me a f---ing break."

At one part of the recording, Trump insists she was trying to help separated children at the border, saying, "I was trying to get the kid reunited with the mom. I didn't have a chance. It needs to go through the process and the law."

The first lady also cast doubt on the authenticity of some immigrants' accounts of fleeing danger in their home countries.

"A lot of like moms and kids they are teached how to do it. They go over and they say like, 'Oh, we will be killed by a gang member, we will be, you know, it's so dangerous,' " Trump said, in a sarcastic tone. "So they are allowed to stay here."
