President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump deliver their 2017 Christmas message to America and the world.

In a Christmas Eve call to USA troops overseas, President Trump said the nation is saying Merry Christmas "very proudly".

The calls took place at their Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida on Sunday, where Mr. and Mrs. Trump fielded questions from children dialing into NORAD's phone line looking to see where Santa was on his journey.

Military families, Trump said, are "always underappreciated" and "the greatest people on earth".

At one point, the president thanked sailors aboard the USS Sampson for setting a "new standard" for readiness.

"Every American heart is thankful to you and we're asking God to watch over you and to watch over your families", he told Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard members via video hook-up from his estate and private club in Palm Beach, where he is spending the holidays with his family.

Later Sunday, the president and first lady Melania Trump fielded calls from children eager to know how soon Santa Claus would get to their homes.

Trump and other conservatives, in past holiday seasons, have slammed political correctness - and Democrats - for saying "Happy Holidays" and not Merry Christmas, arguing the difference was part of a "War on Christmas". Another, from Virginia, was heard telling the president he wanted building blocks.

"We say Christmas again very proudly", Trump said from the living room of Mar-a-Lago.
