Tens of Thousands Sign Petition Urging Dr. Jill Biden to Fix Melania’s Destroyed Rose Garden

Okay, this is amazing.

Almost 40,000 people have signed an online petition calling for first lady Jill Biden and second gentleman Doug Emhoff to undo changes to the White House Rose Garden undertaken by the previous first lady Melania Trump.

“In 2019, Melania Trump had the cherry trees, a gift from Japan, removed as well as the rest of the foliage and replaced with a boring tribute to herself,” the Change.org petition says. “We want Jill Biden and Doug Emhoff to take this on and restore the Rose Garden to former first lady Jackie Kennedy’s original design.”

The petition says the changes, which were overseen by Trump and paid for by private donations, “ripped away” Kennedy’s legacy.

The White House debuted the newly renovated garden in August, ahead of the then-first lady’s address to the Republican National Convention.

The garden, which is often used by presidents to deliver speeches and hold outdoor press briefings, was the site of a “superspreader event” last September when it was used to celebrate Amy Coney Barrett’s SCOTUS nomination.

Three weeks after Melania unveiled the new garden design, it had to undergo emergency repairs after experiencing “issues with water drainage” and “some minor complications with updated construction.”

Do you think President Biden's vaccination plan is working?

Then the grass had to be completely redone after it was damaged beyond repair during the Republican National Convention, when hundreds of people trampled all over it.
