President Donald Trump reminded everyone in the nation during the White House tree lighting that Jesus is the reason for the Christmas season.
As recorded on The White House website, the lighting ceremony took place on Nov. 30.
President Trump carried on White House tradition and spoke at the ceremony. Without hesitation or embarrassment, he took the stage and immediately began to recall the Christmas story.
“The Christmas Story begins 2,000 years ago with a mother, a father, their baby son, and the most extraordinary gift of all—the gift of God’s love for all of humanity,” he began.
“Whatever our beliefs, we know that the birth of Jesus Christ and the story of his life forever changed the course of human history,” he continued.
The president wasn’t afraid to keep mentioning the name of Jesus or tell America the truth about the Christmas season: it’s all about the birth of Jesus Christ.
“Each and every year at Christmas time we recognize that the real spirit of Christmas is not what we have, it’s about who we are – each one of us is a child of God,” Trump continued, according to LifeSite News.
“That is the true source of joy this time of the year. That is what makes every Christmas ‘merry,’” he stated.
Trump has always upheld that God plays a major role in the very core of our country.
Even during his presidential campaign, the president called for “Merry Christmas” to become the norm once again instead of the secularized, “Happy Holidays.”
While the mention of God and prayer is being erased from schools and the public square, the president is once again reaffirming the Christian values that undergird our nation.

Thank you, Mr. President, for not being ashamed to proclaim these truths.
