Trump says people using 'Merry Christmas' again

Trump has seized on these feelings, regularly telling primarily religious audiences that his presidency has made it acceptable to "start saying Merry Christmas again".

Speaking to a packed crowd at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., Trump argued political correctness has gotten in the way of celebrating the holiday.

"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.

The president also said he was "stopping cold" attacks on Judeo-Christian values.

"By appearing at the Values Voter Summit, President Trump is lending the legitimacy of his office to a hate group that relentlessly demonizes LGBT people and works to deny them of their equal rights", he told The Independent. "If I'm president, you will see 'Merry Christmas" in department stores, believe me, believe me". Trump scraped that plan with a new rule that would exempt employers whose religious or moral beliefs conflict with providing contraceptive coverage.

"The Justice Department issued new guidance to all federal agencies to ensure no religious group is ever targeted under my administration", Trump said, pointing to the Little Sisters of the Poor, the religious group that took their case on contraception to the Supreme Court, saying "they went through hell".

Last year, Trump spoke at the summit as the Republican presidential nominee. But they don't say - well guess what?

"We're getting near that handsome 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. "That includes increasing the tax credit and expanding it to eliminate the marriage penalty, because we know that the American family is the true bedrock of the American life".
