Trump and his wife, Melania, arrived Sunday night at the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea. The Trumps were married at the church in 2005.
The first lady recently said that attending church on Christmas Eve is a family tradition.
Earlier Sunday, Trump offered season’s greetings to U.S. troops stationed overseas. He also joined the first lady for the tradition of fielding telephone calls from kids tracking Santa’s progress by way of a Defense Department program. He played golf and had dinner with his family.

President Trump celebrated the first major legislative victory of his presidency Friday before heading to Florida for the holidays by signing into law the $1.5 trillion tax overhaul. He rushed the signing of the bill without a major ceremony because he wanted to keep his promise to sign it by Christmas. He also signed a short-term fix to keep the government running for another month, which sets up a major spending fight in January.
Signing a hard-fought bill into law in what may be the most sweeping tax overhaul in a generation and assuring Americans that they will begin to see their taxes go down starting in February.
Most Americans will see their taxes drop temporarily, but the biggest benefits will go to corporations, whose cuts are permanent. The new law also includes a repeal of Obamacare’s individual mandate.
President Trump later tweeted: “…the most hated part of ObamaCare is the individual mandate, which is being terminated under our just signed Tax Cut bill.”
That sentiment was echoed by Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.
“I’d love to see other changes and we’re going to be moving the bills that have enough votes to pass,” McConnell said.
