Former first lady Melania Trump’s office fired back at “dishonorable” NBC historian Michael Beschloss over his criticism of the work she did on the White House Rose Garden.

“.@BeschlossDC has proven his ignorance by showing a picture of the Rose Garden in its infancy,” a tweet from the office of the former first lady read on Sunday. (RELATED: Celebrate Melania’s Birthday With Her Greatest Looks As First Lady [SLIDESHOW])

“The Rose Garden is graced with a healthy [and] colorful blossoming of roses,” the message added. “His misleading information is dishonorable [and] he should never be trusted as a professional historian.” (RELATED: A Look Back At Melania Trump’s Best Looks From The Summer [SLIDESHOW])

The post included a photo of the White House Rose Garden filled with rows and rows of blooming colorful rose bushes. The tweet from the former FLOTUS included a retweet from the NBC News presidential historian describing what he called the “evisceration of White House Rose Garden” by Melania. His post also included a photo without any blooming rose bushes. (RELATED: A New Photo Book About Melania Features Several Never-Before-Seen Stunning Photos Of First Lady)

“Evisceration of White House Rose Garden was completed a year ago this month, and here was the grim result—decades of American history made to disappear: @dougmillsnyt,” Beschloss tweeted.

At the time, Melania’s work was criticized by some in the media because she had removed cherry trees and tulips from the Rose Garden to renovate the garden, dezeen.com noted.

The first lady announced she wanted to return the garden to how it looked in 1962, when it was designed by Rachel Lambert Mellon, CBS News noted.
