Trump's Christmas Eve admission: No gift yet for Melania

Share

Donald Trump told troops in a video call Tuesday that he still hasn't gotten a gift for first lady Melania Trump - just hours before Christmas Day. "It's a big Christmas hit, one of the biggest", said Trump, who had just acquired the Plaza Hotel in NY, where several scenes for the 1992 film were shot. We send our best wishes for a merry Christmas and a happy and prosperous New Year.

After his call with service members, President Trump and first lady Melania Trump attended a Christmas Eve church service in Florida before celebrating the holiday with dinner at his private club.

Long before taking up residence in the White House, Donald Trump appeared in Home Alone 2 - a turn on the big screen he described as an "honour". Brief sermons and readings by clergy were interlaced between traditional Christmas songs, as theatrical smoke billowed and fake snow descended from the rafters.

The Trumps then returned to his private club, where they were greeted by applause as they entered for Christmas Eve dinner.

Attending the church was a change of pace for the Trumps, who had attended holiday services in the past at Bethesda-by-the-Sea, the Episcopal Church in Palm Beach where they were married in 2005.

The number of suspected influenza cases for the year was at 3,320 and the "confirmed influenza deaths for this flu season - 33". The CDC estimates that flu season will reach its peak before the Lunar New Year break from January 23-29, he said.


Trump made the comments during a video conference call from his Mar-a-Lago resort with USA military members stationed overseas for the holiday season, who he called "tremendous warriors". 'And I think I'll answer that by saying, I'm still working on the Christmas present.

The troops also invited the president to attend the homecoming of the USS Forrest Sherman when the destroyer returns to its home port in Norfolk, Virginia, next year.

Rumors that Dershowitz could be added to Trump's defense team gained momentum last week when the law professor attended the White House Hanukkah party and was asked by the USA president to speak at the event. "We encourage DPRK & US to work out a feasible roadmap for establishing a permanent peace regime & realizing complete denuclearization on the Peninsula", Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said. The children spoke about items from their Christmas wishlists. Trump, who was recently impeached for abuse of power and obstruction of Congress, has reportedly been mulling adding the prominent Jewish defense attorney and scholar to his legal defense team.
