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.
Trump mentioned his nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court. And the audience at the Values Voter Summit, an annual socially conservative conference, didn't fail to deliver. "To protect religious liberty, including protecting groups like this one, I signed a new executive action in a lovely ceremony at the White House on our National Day of Prayer".
Trump zeroed in on this subject much more during his presidential campaign than he has as president.
This and the religious liberty order show that Trump "is committed to undoing the anti-faith policies of the previous administration and restoring true religious freedom", Perkins said.
"We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values", Trump said to applause, before slamming people who don't say "Merry Christmas".
Trump laced his remarks with other comments about faith.
"Values voters are coming to our nation's capital thankful to hear from a president who is fulfilling the promises that he campaigned on", FRC president Tony Perkins said in a press release this week.
"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.
FRC Action's 12 Annual Values Voter Summit is co-sponsored by AFA Action, American Values, Christian Healthcare Ministries, Association of Mature American Citizens, The D. James Kennedy Center for Christian Statesmanship, The Heritage Foundation, United in Purpose, Oklahoma Wesleyan University, and Family Research Council.
