Trump Revisits the ‘War on Christmas’ in July: ‘Remember the Attack on Merry Christmas?’
President Donald Trump got the crowd at his Tampa rally fired up today, but for some reason on the last day of July he reflected on the “war on Christmas.”
Trump was talking about voter ID before he said, “We’re turning it around. Remember I said––it’s awfully early to be thinking this, but I always think it––remember the attack on ‘Merry Christmas’?”
“They’re not attacking it anymore. Everyone’s happy to say ‘Merry Christmas,'” the President declared.
Trump has exploited this cultural issue since the 2016 election. Last December he actually took credit for leading the charge to make people proud to say “Merry Christmas” again:
People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again. I am proud to have led the charge against the assault of our cherished and beautiful phrase. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!
