President Donald Trump is unconventional, compared to previous presidents. News outlets ran stories comparing how President Trump’s predecessor, Barack Obama, spent his Christmas, to President Trump.
The Obamas spent Christmases in Hawaii, where Obama called home (in addition to Chicago, Illinois). But Obama’s last Christmas tweet as president differed from Trump’s first Christmas tweet:
Merry Christmas, and happy holidays to you and yours—big or small. pic.twitter.com/knZUoQidcl

Trump, on the other hand, tweeted about bringing the phrase “Merry Christmas” back from political correctness, which he spent at his resort in Mar-a-Lago, Florida:
People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again. I am proud to have led the charge against the assault of our cherished and beautiful phrase. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!

President George W. Bush spent Christmas at Camp David, a presidential compound in Maryland and gave U.S. service members a call on Christmas Eve.
