Trump, Marooned in White House, Spread Christmas Cheer to Nation's Children

Thanks to the harsh and stubborn view of the democrats regarding border security, President Trump is making a major point this Christmas.

While the left is at home, with their families, celebrating with egg nog and holiday cheer, Donald Trump is at the White House “all alone”, according to tweets that he has been sending surrounding Christmas.  He’s publicly hoping and waiting for the democrats to come around and negotiate on a spending bill that could reopen the government, but, so far, to no avail.

Instead of sulking or otherwise making the issue a personal one, the President is moving on, allowing the democrats to lie in the bed that they’ve made.

Meanwhile, the Commander in Chief is taking time out of his schedule to answer calls from the nation’s children, spreading the holiday cheer while the left seethes from home.

It was the night before Christmas, and U.S. President Donald Trump was on the phone with children, peppering them with questions about whether they were looking forward to the holiday.

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.

Amid the shutdown, the National Park Service was able to finagle funding to reopen the National Christmas Tree outside of the White House after it was damaged by vandals and shuttered by the political stunt.
