Trump says 'people don't talk about' Christmas 'anymore'

Trump says 'people don't talk about' Christmas 'anymore'

Trump's speech marked the first time a sitting USA president spoke at the Values Voter Summit, which is hosted by the anti-LGBT Family Research Council.

His speech Friday was the third time Trump addressed the conservative gathering, after previously speaking at the event in 2015 as a candidate and then in 2016 as the Republican presidential nominee.

"We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values", Trump said to applause. "They'll have it painted but they don't say - guess what, we're saying Merry Christmas again". We celebrate our heroes and we salute every American who wears the uniform. He also said he hoped Congress will give the American people a Christmas gift by passing his tax cut proposal.

These and millions of other voters went heavy for the "working-class billionaire", whom they saw as someone who would push back against an assault on their values and way of life. He opened his speech by mentioning the tragedy in Las Vegas and the need for prayer at this hard time.

"I appointed and confirmed a Supreme Court Justice in the mold of the late great Justice Antonin Scalia, the newest member of the Supreme Court, Justice Neil Gorsuch", said Trump.

"President Trump's executive order on religious liberty and the follow up actions last week by HHS and DOJ, demonstrate that he is committed to undoing the anti-faith policies of the previous administration and restoring true religious freedom".

Trump also denounced the Johnson Amendment, which prohibits houses of worship from engaging in political activities, promising that he will "not allow government workers to censor sermons, or target our pastors, our ministers, our rabbis".

Tell us how you really feel, Paul. "We don't worship government".

"A lot of people said: 'I wonder if Donald will get the evangelicals?'"

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.

"One of the promises I made you was that I would come back", he said during his remarks.

Eight in 10 white evangelicals cast their vote for Trump last November, according to exit polls - a higher proportion than supported fellow Republicans George W Bush in 2004, John McCain in 2008 or Mitt Romney in 2012.
