Just before leaving Washington, the president pardoned his first Thanksgiving turkeys, Drumstick and Wishbone.
It is that notion of the holiday, perhaps, why many people might find it jarring on Thursday morning by how President Donald Trump offered the nation a Happy Thanksgiving in the form of a tweet in which he vowed to "build the WALL" created to keep future refugees and immigrants out of the country.
President Donald Trump has spent almost one out of every three days since his inauguration at a property owned by him and his family.
The remarks were unusually political for an American president's Thanksgiving address to troops but perfectly in line with Trump's penchant for making such statements to nonpolitical public servants.

"Today we give thanks for all the pilgrims, pioneers, and patriots who have gone before us", he said.
Trump, his wife, Melania, and their son, Barron, touched down about 5:45 p.m.at Palm Beach International Airport.
In other years, Bush and Obama both spent time during their holiday to call troops serving overseas - usually at least one or two from every military branch.
Trump tweeted before the call that he'd be speaking to soldiers in Afghanistan, Iraq, on the USS Monterey, and in Turkey and Bahrain.
Hafiz Saeed released from house arrest
The counsel of the federal government argued that the release of four associates of Saeed had created law and order issues. The Pakistan government failed to provide any evidence to the court as for why Hafiz Saeed was kept under house arrest.
He also tweeted that he'll be visiting a Coast Guard facility in Florida later in the day.
Kasparov added that he isn't even sure Trump knows he's playing a game, much less winning at it.
"They say we've made more progress against ISIS than they did in years of the previous administration, and that's because I'm letting you do your job", Trump said, in a video call to branches of the USA armed forces. "Nobody knows that", Trump said.
Trump is celebrating the holiday from his private club Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Florida.
