To be fair, a quick search provides the following information from a number
of different news agencies.
 "At the recommendation of specialists from the National Arboretum, first
lady Melania Trump called for a large portion of the tree to be removed
this week."
The documents read in part:

*"The overall architecture and structure of the tree is greatly compromised
and the tree is completely dependent on the artificial support. Without the
extensive cabling system, the tree would have fallen years ago. Presently,
and very concerning, the cabling system is failing on the east trunk, as a
cable has pulled through the very thin layer of wood that remains. It is
difficult to predict when and how many more will fail."*


*The National Arboretum said in the documents obtained by CNN that if it
were not for the particular history of the tree, it would have been cleared
several years ago. "All measures have been used to save it to this point in
time...While we cannot comment on the need to preserve the tree as long as
it stands, we believe eventually, the tree will fail," the report said. *
