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

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

In a new low, President Donald Trump becomes the first sitting president to address the Values Voter Summit, an annual gathering of anti-gay Christian extremists who aim "to preserve the bedrock values of traditional marriage, religious liberty, sanctity of life, and limited government that make our nation strong".

In case you didn't know, the annual event is hosted by recognized anti-LGBT hate group, the Family Research Council (FRC). He says Gorsuch is in the mold of Justice Antonin Scalia, the conservative whose death in February 2016 created the vacancy on the high court that Trump was able to fill.

"Since the early days of the campaign, President Trump allied himself with values voters, promising to put an end to the 8 years of relentless assault on the First Amendment", said Tony Perkins, President of Family Research Council (FRC), of which FRC Action is a legislative affiliate.

He says people are saying "Merry Christmas" again. "How times have changed". He got another standing ovation when he proclaimed that "we respect our great American flag". You know, we're getting near that handsome Christmas season that people don't talk about anymore.They don't use the word "Christmas" because it's not politically correct.

"We defend our Constitution". "The American founders invoked our creator four times in the declaration of Independence, four times".

But it was not only the Gorsuch nomination, but the "150 other conservative court nominees" Trump appointed who will "turn back this country to its roots".

Moore suggested the boycott last 24 hours, and advised users to completely log out of the popular social media platform starting at midnight Eastern Daylight Time.

A later speaker, former Rep. Michele Bachmann, vouched for Trump's religious awakening. "I didn't have a schedule, but if I did have a schedule I would say we are substantially ahead of schedule".

The president also touched on a topic that he often discussed on the campaign trail - that our culture should welcome back people and say "Merry Christmas" around the holidays. "We don't worship government".

He again used the phrase "radical Islamic terrorism", one that Barack Obama studiously avoided, to cheers and applause, and made the questionable assertion: "We've done more against Isis in nine months than the previous administration's done during its whole administration - by far, by far".

President Trump told values voters at the event that enemies fear the United States because the American people never give up.

Trump also talked of the courage and resilience he saw when visiting victims of the recent deadly mass shooting in Las Vegas and while touring areas devastated by hurricanes in Texas and Florida - and knocked negative media coverage of his administration's response to devastation in Puerto Rico.

And win them over he did - 80 percent of white evangelicals cast their vote for Trump last November, according to exit polls.
