Trump Claims Victory in War on Christmas: 'We're Saying Merry Christmas Again'

President Donald Trump will make his third appearance at FRC Action's annual Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., on Friday, October 13, and will become the first sitting president to address the gathering. Speaking before the group in 2015, Trump got booed when he referred to Sen.

Still, the president's past support for reproductive rights, his poor attendance record at church and his two divorces put him at odds with numerous core values these same Christian voters espouse. "They don't use the word 'Christmas'". Americans are as free today as they were past year or decades ago to say "Merry Christmas", or "Happy Holidays", or nothing at all.

'In America, we don't worship government, we worship God, ' Trump said.

"We're getting near that attractive Christmas season that people don't talk about any more, they don't use the word Christmas because it is not politically correct", Trump said.

Calling his efforts "substantially ahead of schedule", Trump declared that "we are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values". "We're saying Merry Christmas again". "No more Merry Christmas on Starbucks", Trump told a Springfield, Illinois rally.

He says people are saying "Merry Christmas" again. Marco Rubio, then a 2016 presidential candidate, a "clown".

The President needled Congress on Friday.

The president will address the social conservatives after he announced last week that he would end an Obama-era mandate that made it a requirement for employers to cover birth control in health insurance plans.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, heralded that decision, arguing that it showed Trump is committed to "undoing the anti-faith policies of the previous administration and restoring true religious freedom".
