Trump's Christmas message to the troops: 'We're winning'

Others dug out Mr Trump's 2010 tweet in which he wished his millions of followers not merry Christmas but a "very happy holiday season".

President Donald Trump on Sunday said that America is winning the war against terrorism as he greeted USA troops stationed around the world on Christmas Eve.

"I'll be working very hard during that Christmas because we have many things we're talking about, including North Korea, including a lot of things happening in the Middle East, as you know", Trump told reporters Friday. "Your families have been tremendous".

From his Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago, where Trump is spending the holidays, he spoke by video hook-up to members of the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marines and Coast Guard, stationed in Qatar, Kuwait and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

During the call, he commended sailors on the USS Sampson for setting "a new standard in readiness".

He specifically praised the Coast Guard for their response to the hurricanes this fall. What a job you've done. "What a job you've done ... saved thousands and thousands of lives".

Trump told the troops that Americans are thankful for them and their families.

"Every American heart is thankful to you and we're asking God to watch over you and to watch over your families", he said, before he asked journalists to leave the room so he could begin answering any service member questions.

But first: Golf. On Saturday, Trump went golfing at the Trump International Gold Course in West Palm Beach, Fla.

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.

"Santa moves very quickly".

Trump also attended Christmas Eve dinner with family members.
