“Merry Christmas,” not the politically correct “Happy Holidays”, is what appears on Trump’s official Christmas card.
And liberals are losing it.
For the last eight years, President Obama wished Americans a politically correct “joyous holiday season.”
But this year’s White House Christmas card shows that there is a new sheriff in town.
“President Trump is fulfilling his promise to bring back “Merry Christmas” to the White House by including the phrase in his 2017 White House Christmas card.
The Trump family is taking a different approach with their holiday greeting than the Obama family, who opted to use the more generic phrase “Happy Holidays” in their greetings, according to the Daily Mail.
The White House unveiled the card, which is signed by President Trump, First Lady Melania Trump, and their 11-year-old son Barron Trump, on Monday in the White House “Bookseller’s” area after revealing the Christmas decorations to the public.
A gold presidential seal adorns the front of the card while the inside of the card includes the phrase “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year” with the first family’s signatures at the bottom.
Trump made a promise on the campaign trail to bring back the use of the phrase “Merry Christmas” around the holiday season. He began using the phrase around the holidays on his “Thank You” tour in Wisconsin in December 2016.
President Trump’s Christmas card honors his promise to end the assault on Christian values that he highlighted in October.
The president reiterated his promise at the Values Voters Summit in Washington, DC, in October when he told the crowd of activists at the conference that he would support the use of the word Christmas again.
“We’re saying Merry Christmas again,” he told the crowd.”
“President Donald Trump vowed to end leftist attacks on Christian values that threatened the United States.
“We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values,” he said, referring to the first 10 months of his administration.
The president made his remarks during a speech at the Values Voters Summit in Washington D.C. on Friday.
“America is a nation of believers and we are strengthened and sustained by the power of prayer,” he said, quoting the Founding Fathers and the founding documents of the United States.
“How times have changed, but you know what? They’re changing back again,” he added.
The president pointed to recent actions by his administration to restore religious liberty for people of faith, especially the Little Sisters of the Poor with the Obamacare mandate.
“They were going through hell,” he said.
He also pointed to his decision to re-instate the Mexico City policy and restore the National Day of Prayer.
“In America, we don’t worship government. We worship God,” Trump said.
He also previewed the Christmas season, vowing that he would support the use of the word “Christmas” again.
“We’re saying Merry Christmas again,” he vowed.
Trump also referred to the threat of “radical Islamic terrorism” pointing to his success of the fight against ISIS and other ideologies of evil, like Communism in Cuba and socialism in Venezuela.
“We will not lift the sanctions on these repressive regimes until they restore political and religious freedom for their people,” Trump said.
He celebrated the religious faith of Americans across the nation, and their efforts to raise strong families.
“We will defeat every evil, overcome every threat, and meet every single challenge,” he said. “We will defend our faith and protect our traditions.”
It is refreshing to see a politician and President who actually takes their political promises seriously.
