Towards the end of a speech at the Heritage Foundation purportedly about pitching his tax reform plan, President Donald Trump went on a riff about the “War on Christmas” and the use of the term “Merry Christmas.”
Telling the crowd that he wanted to give them the “best Christmas present of all” in massive tax relief, Trump took the opportunity to go on about how stores don’t post signs saying “Merry Christmas” and people don’t use the phrase anymore.
“I will give you a bigger Christmas present,” Trump stated. “You’re gonna be saying Merry Christmas again. You’re gonna say Merry Christmas.”
He went on to claim that stores decorated for Christmas but didn’t say “Merry Christmas,” leading him to tell the audience it will occur this season.
“I want them to say, Merry Christmas,” he exclaimed. “Everybody. Happy New Year. Happy Holidays. But I want Merry Christmas. It’s happening already. You know it. You know it’s happening again.”
Earlier this month during another speech, the president claimed victory in the War on Christmas, stating that everyone will be “saying Merry Christmas again.”
