Melania Trump has responded to criticism of her choice of Christmas decorations for the White House, saying they "look fantastic".

"You're all very welcome to visit the White House".

Speaking at a panel event at Liberty University in Virginia on Wednesday, Mrs Trump said: "We are in the 21st century and everybody has a different taste".

Helping children "avoid negative social media interaction" is one of the core goals of the "Be Best" initiative, along with combating the opioid crisis, the subject of the town hall.

How will the committee rank OU and Ohio State?
Just because a team is undefeated does not mean it is one of the best in the eyes of the committee, as UCF learned last season. But Ohio State has won six straight, and MI head coach Jim Harbaugh has yet to lead his team to a victory in "The Game".
