Trump tweets that people are 'saying Merry Christmas again,' credits himself

President TrumpDonald John TrumpHouse Democrat slams Donald Trump Jr. for "serious case of amnesia" after testimony Skier Lindsey Vonn: I don't want to represent Trump at Olympics Poll: 4 in 10 Republicans think senior Trump advisers had improper dealings with Russia MORE wished Americans a "Merry Christmas" in a video message he posted to Twitter on Monday morning.

"I just want to wish everybody a very, very merry Christmas, we say Merry Christmas, again, very, very proudly", Trump said.

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

Trump opened the day by tweeting against the FBI's deputy director and the news media.

Trump told a caller from MS that the state is "great" and predicted that "Santa is going to treat you very well". "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".

All five branches were included in the teleconference and Trump took questions after members of the media were escorted out of the room.

Conservative angst over a perceived shift away from "Merry Christmas" has long percolated. The calls came through a Defense Department Santa tracker program.

'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.

Trump has bemoaned the use of more generic messages like "Happy Holidays" in the past, promising on the 2016 campaign trail that Americans would be "saying Merry Christmas again". Trump and his wife engaged callers on separate telephones at their Mar-a-Lago estate as they sat in chairs on opposite sides of a large Christmas tree.

"Building blocks, that's what I've always liked, too", Trump answered. The Trumps were married at the church in 2005.
