While at President Trump’s Mar-a-Lago club, law enforcement were provided a Christmas feast, Fox News reported.

President Trump paid for hundreds of Christmas meals for the U.S Secret Service agents and officers, military service personnel, and Palm Beach County sheriff deputies working at Mar-a-Lago.

Typical Christmas dishes were served at the buffet such as turkey, stuffing and potatoes. The meals were served from the afternoon and into the evening to cover the two rotating shifts of security personnel.

During the holidays, Trump teleconferenced troops and spoke with children on the lookout for Santa Claus by giving them updates on his whereabouts tracked by the North American Aerospace Defense Command.

On Christmas morning, President Trump released a video on Twitter with an uplifting Christmas message.

In the video, first lady Melania Trump said, “at this time of year, we see the best of America and the soul of the American people.”

“In the season of joy, we spend time with our families. We renew the bonds of love and good will between our citizens —and most importantly we celebrate the miracle of Christmas.”

“For Christians we remember the story of Jesus, Mary and Joseph that began more than 2,000 years ago,” Trump continued. “As the book of Isaiah tells us, for to us a child is born, to us a son is given and the government will be on his shoulders and he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. This good news is the greatest Christmas gift of all, the reason for our joy and the true source of our hope.”
