After more than a year, former First Lady Melania Trump has become aware of the criticism surrounding her changes to Jackie Kennedy's famous design of the White House Rose Garden.
Because the Trumps wanted to use the White House for the Republican National Convention in 2020, they made significant changes to the legendary Rose Garden.
At the time of the change, presidential historian Michael Beschloss' insulted Melania Trump's work by posting some of the photos of the garden throughout the years. Upon the anniversary of the project, Bechloss posted another photo showing the rows of simplistic box hedges and low-profile shrubbery.
"[Beschloss] has proven his ignorance by showing a picture of the Rose Garden in its infancy," the Twitter account linked to the "Office of Melania Trump" said on Sunday. The account shared a photo that some said was taken from a vantage point that neglected to show how the cherry blossom and crab apple trees were removed.
As some noted, it is as if it was replaced with simplified knockout roses and a tangled mess of randomized plants that might work in The Hamptons, but demand a higher level of sophistication for the White House. Unfortunately, after all of Melania Trump's work, it was already in need of repairs.

Some said it would take years to repair the damage Mrs. Trump did, particularly with the mature trees.
