Trump to federal workers: Enjoy the holiday

Some 2.1 million federal employees are getting a holiday gift from President Donald Trump: a day off for Christmas Eve. Presidents often, but not always, give federal workers time off around Christmas. In an executive order last week, Trump said “all executive departments and agencies of the Federal Government shall be closed and their employees excused from duty” on Dec. 24. Public safety employees must still report to work, and federal offices will remain open “for reasons of national security, defense, or other public need.” Trump last year closed federal offices on Christmas Eve, which fell on a Monday – essentially giving workers a four-day weekend.
