Trump's busy Christmas Eve: calls to troops, talk of Santa

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

Trump - who has sent a series of combative tweets since arriving at his Florida vacation home - he said he wants "peace for the country". "Every American heart is thankful to you and we're asking God to watch over you and to watch over your families".

"We say Christmas again very proudly", Trump told the troops. 'So I want to congratulate the Coast Guard for having done an incredible job'. "The Coast Guard saved thousands and thousands of lives, nearly it's unbelievable when I look at the charts, I saw the number of lives you saved", Trump told them.

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.

"Today is a day that I've been looking very much forward to all year long", the president said as he spoke at the 95th annual National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony last month.

Trump participates in a video teleconference call with military members on Christmas Eve in Palm Beach. Another, from Virginia, was heard telling the president he wanted building blocks.
