Liberals love to walk around acting like President Trump is heartless buffoon, when in reality he is a very caring individual.
In fact, it was reported by Yahoo News that President Donald Trump spent his Christmas Eve on the phone, brighting the holiday for children from all over America.
Every Christmas Eve, the North American Aerospace Defense Command in Colorado Springs, Colorado, claims to track Santa Claus’ flight across the globe, a tradition dating to 1955, when a department store printed the phone number of a NORAD colonel in a Christmas newspaper ad by mistake.
This year, though, the NORAD calls came at a precarious time for the president, who is mired in crises, from a government shutdown that has affected a quarter of federal agencies and departments to a stock market selloff amid Trump’s public criticisms of the Federal Reserve.
The NORAD calls were the first time Trump has been seen in public since the shutdown began. NORAD said on Friday it would continue the tradition in the event of a shutdown, adding in a tweet that military personnel would be supported by 1,500 volunteers.
President Trump, who was supposed to be heading to Florida to spend the holiday weekend at his vacation home, decided to remain at the White House during the government shutdown, which took place after higher ups in Washington could not come to an agreement over Trump’s proposed border wall.
Rather than heading to Florida to soak up the sun, Trump stayed in Washington.
He has spent the time tweeting about different people and things, like outgoing Defense Secretary James Mattis, who suddenly announced his resignation last week after President Trump’s decision to withdraw our troops from Syria. He also tweeted about North Korea, the Fed, and Senate Foreign Relations chairman Bob Corker.
“I am all alone (poor me) in the White House waiting for the Democrats to come back and make a deal on desperately needed Border Security,” the President tweeted on Monday.
Yahoo reports, “Trump’s Republican Party holds majorities in both congressional chambers until Jan. 3, when Democrats take control of the House of Representatives. But with the children, Trump appeared to try to keep things light as he sat beside his wife, Melania, in front of a roaring fireplace beneath a portrait of former President Abraham Lincoln.”
“Are you still a believer in Santa?” Trump asked his interlocutor.
When reporters questioned the President about the government shutdown and if there had been any progress made on the funding issue, he stated that he had nothing to say.
“Nothing new,” Trump explained. “We need border security.”
