President Donald Trump is honoring one of America’s most famous Democrats with the official 2017 White House Christmas ornament.
The White House’s 2017 Christmas ornament celebrates former President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, according to The White House Historical Association’s website. The ornament is made out of brass and 24-karat gold to honor Roosevelt’s legacy of serving a historic four terms from 1933 to 1945 and his desire to restore faith to the American people, reported Fox News.
“The eagle cartouche emblazoned on the speaker’s stand at President Roosevelt’s first inauguration is the inspiration for the main element of the 2017 ornament,” The White Historical Association’s website reads. Four stars are also at the top of the ornament to commemorate Roosevelt’s four terms as president, which included the Great Depression and World War II.

The White House Association was founded in 1961 with the help of former First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy, to preserve the integrity of the White House. The 2016 ornament celebrated the tenure of former President Herbert Hoover, according to the website.
