President Trump and the First Lady have released their annual Christmas message.

‘Melania and I are truly thrilled to wish every American a very, merry Christmas,’ said President Trump at the start of the video.
‘During the Christmas season we rejoice in God’s many blessings. We come together to spread hope, love, compassion, cheer and goodwill,’ said Melania.
‘And we remember the events of one holy night more than 2,000 years ago.’
President Trump then delivered his annual address to members of the armed forces, who were seen waiting for his address on a television set up in the Oval Office.
During a photo op for that call, President Trump decided to defend shutting down the government over funding for his border wall and slam former FBI director James Comey.
