President Donald Trump keeps proving that he is a unique president as he did not follow the tradition of visiting U.S. troops on Christmas.

through the history of America, presidents adapted the tradition to visit members of the military in the hospital or military bases to show compassion for their sacrifice and thank them for their dedication to America on Christmas.

however this year the tradition was broken by the current leader as he did not bother to make the 8-mile jaunt to Walter Reed to visit the troops.

the president could not escape the task of calling U.S. service members deployed around the world as he spent Christmas morning calling them.

In the video conference, which he attended from the Oval Office, Trump thanked the troops for their service and sacrifice.

"I want you to know that every American family is eternally grateful to you," Trump told troops from the Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine Corps and Coast Guard stationed in Guam, Bahrain, Qatar, and Alaska.
