Trump Wishes Troops Merry Christmas Via Video Conference

He added, "With Trump as your president, we are going to be celebrating "Merry Christmas" again".

"As we celebrate this most precious holiday, we're grateful for each of you who spend this Christmas away from our families and defend all of our families, our freedom and our flag", Trump said.

But unlike most Americans, he released a brief video in which his wife, Melania, joined him to "wish America and the entire world a very Merry Christmas".

But the day was not without work. He also squeezed in golf, family time and worship.

U.S. President Donald Trump participates in a Christmas Eve video teleconference with members of the military at Mar-a-Lago estate in Palm Beach, Florida, U.S., December 24, 2017.

The group is called America First Policies and it includes Trump's digital and data director Brad Parscale, newly-indicted former deputy campaign manager Rick Gates and Vice President Mike Pence's former campaign advisers.

The Trumps also attended Christmas Eve services at the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea.

Trump also sought to cheer USA troops who are spending the holiday away from their own families.

"Every American heart is thankful to you and we are asking God to watch over you and to watch over your families", Trump said.

President Donald Trump used a holiday teleconference with the troops to suggest that he reinvigorated the use of the word "Christmas" by becoming president. The Coast Guard saved thousands and thousands of lives.

"Many Republicans are very happy, but I have to tell you, the people of Florida, Texas, Puerto Rico, and lots of other states are even more happy", Trump told the Coast Guard members. The calls came through a Defense Department Santa tracker program.

Trump ate Christmas Eve dinner with family before heading to church.
