Joe Biden’s Christmas tree, which he will install for the first time as president of the United States, will cost the country’s budget more than 100 thousand dollars. The amount that will be spent on the festive tree was named by the TMZ tabloid with reference to official documents.

According to the publication, the U.S. National Park Service allocated $ 139 thousand (more than 10.5 million rubles) to a company from the state of Ohio for the search, transportation, and planting of a Christmas tree. The tree will be installed near the White House.

The journalists found out that the American authorities signed the relevant document in September 2021. The publication noted that this year the country decided to save money — for comparison, in 2019, the Christmas tree cost more than 160 thousand dollars.
