How Michelle Obama changed the dress code for White House butlers ... (makes me love her even more)

How Michelle Obama changed the dress code for White House butlers because she didn't want Malia and Sasha growing up thinking 'African American men serve them in tuxedos'
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-8286407/Michelle-Obama-changed-White-House-dress-code-butlers.html

* Michelle Obama changed the White House dress codes for butlers and also insisted her daughters clean their own rooms and not let maids do it

* The former First Lady said the tuxedos sent the wrong message to Malia and Sasha, who were 10 and seven years old when they moved into the White House

* Obama, 54, said: 'The truth was that some of those men were uncles... Girls would have play dates and that just doesn't even look right to me'

* Obama said that she also 'begged' the maids to let the girls clean their own rooms because they wouldn't live in the White House forever

* She told the housekeepers: 'I'm not raising a girl who doesn't know how to make their own bed!'

...


From a usually unfriendly source, but I think they are being pretty fair this time.

I wonder did Trump change it back?
