Trump ‘still working’ on Melania’s Christmas present
President Trump has apparently procrastinated on his holiday shopping, telling U.S. troops on Christmas Eve that he is “still working on” his gift for first lady Melania Trump.
Asked what he got his wife for the holiday, the president said, “I got her a beautiful card … a lot of love. We love our family, and we love each other. We’ve had a great relationship, hopefully like you do with your spouses.”
“I’m still working on a Christmas present,” he added. “There’s a little time left. Not much, but there’s a little time left.”
Question: “What did you get Mrs. Trump for #Christmas this year?”
President Trump: “That’s a tough question. Well, I really should say, a very beautiful card… We’ve had a great relationship and I think I’ll answer that by saying I’m still working on a Christmas present.” pic.twitter.com/s71fSDsGxf

Trump on Tuesday had a video teleconference with U.S. military members around the world while he was at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla.
He also thanked the troops for their service and wished them a good holiday.
“I want to wish you an amazing Christmas and a happy new year,” he said. “You are tremendous warriors and we appreciate it so much.”
