"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.
