She captioned it: "Merry Christmas from President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump."

The photograph was reportedly taken on December 10 by White House photographer Andrea Hanks

Melania wore a buttoned up white shirt under a long black tuxedo jacket in the shot as Trump stood smiling beside her, in the same classic tuxedo he's posed in for every holiday snap.

A bright red carpet and stunning staircase adored with garlands can be seen behind them and on the doorway above their heads.

The picture was snapped the same day of the congressional Christmas party and other White House celebrations.

The couple didn't shoot an official portrait last year but decided to take one for the last time as Trump prepares to leave office and Joe Biden takes over in January.

In 2017, Melania wore an elegant black Delpozo dress; the following year, she donned a long-sleeved white Celine dress and silver heels. 

This year, the White House Christmas decorative theme is "America the Beautiful."

On November 30, she gave a virtual tour of the Pennsylvania Avenue abode and said she intended to celebrate "the majesty of our great nation" with the official decor.

Melania oversaw every aspect of the Christmas decorating, according to East Wing aides.

The "Red Room" is dedicated to the contributions of essential workers during the coronavirus pandemic with ornaments made by American children and a stocking for the Trumps' 14-year-old son, Barron

The library is dedicated to notable women in history with ornaments featuring the artist Georgia O'Keefe and yellow rose decor symbolizing the suffragettes to mark the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment to vote. 

The "China Room" is decorated like a kitchen and have stockings for Trump, his wife, and Barron.

The official 18-foot Fraser fir tree sits in the Blue Room decked out with 160 ornaments made from children across the country, which featured an item from their home state, their name, and age. 

Speaking about the festive decor, Melania tweeted: "During this special time of the year, I am delighted to share 'America the Beautiful' and pay tribute to the majesty of our great Nation.
