  • President Trump began his Christmas Eve by speaking to American troops stationed around the world via video conference

United States President Donald Trump addressed troops via video conference call on Christmas Eve, Sunday. "Every American heart is thankful to you and we're asking God to watch over you and to watch over your families".

He singled out the Coast Guard for the service's work during a series of deadly US hurricanes that caused billions of dollars in damage and that parts of the country are still recovering from.

"People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again", Trump tweeted.

"You've done such an incredible job in Texas and Florida and Puerto Rico", Trump said.

"My fellow Americans, Melania and I are delighted to wish America and the entire world a very Merry Christmas", Trump says in the video message. Nearly - it's unbelievable when I looked at the charts and I saw the number of lives you've saved.

Trump then told the servicemembers he would answer some of their questions, though, first, asked the members of the media in the room, capturing the conversation, to leave.

He offered encouragement when a caller from Virginia wanted to find building blocks under the Christmas tree.

The White House has not released Trump's Christmas schedule, but a year ago he and his wife attended Christmas Eve services at a Palm Beach church before a quiet Christmas Day at the resort.

Trump had promised that this year would be different after what he saw as a trend toward giving the Christian celebration short shrift in favor of a more generic and inclusive "happy holidays" message.

Mr. Trump also took to Twitter on Sunday, saying, "Fake News refuses to talk about how Big and how Strong our BASE is".
