'We say Christmas again very proudly'

President Donald Trump shows off the tax bill after signing it in the Oval Office of the White House Friday Dec. 22 2017 in Washington 'We say Christmas again very proudly'

President Donald Trump's first Christmas Eve in office was a busy one that unfolded like this: tweet against perceived adversaries, cheer US troops spending the holidays overseas, play golf, chat with children anxious to know when Santa will bring their presents, eat dinner with the family and attend a church service. "Every American heart is thankful and we're asking God to watch over you and to watch over your families".

He specifically praised the Coast Guard for their response to the hurricanes this fall.

"Wanted to wish you all a Merry Christmas". "What a job you've done".

During the message, Trump also told the troops, "We say Merry Christmas, again, very, very proudly", CBS News reports. 'So I want to congratulate the Coast Guard for having done an incredible job'.

'If I don't see you during the day, have a great holiday and a great Christmas, thank you very much, ' he said as the pool reporters were being ushered out.

Afterward, Trump unleashed a series of tweets attacking FBI officials responsible for investigations into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's destruction of emails and whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian agents.


Last night, the president and his wife attended a Christmas Eve service at the Palm Beach church where they were married and were greeted by applause.

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.

The president also retweeted a supporter's tweet that showed an image of the president inside a vehicle with the text "winning" above him.

'The Fake News refuses to talk about how Big and how Strong our BASE is, ' Trump wrote.

'Despite only negative reporting, we are doing well - nobody is going to beat us.
