President Trump has promised to bring Christ back to the White House for Christmas. And according to some conservatives websites, this is exactly what Trump is doing.
Melania and Donald Trump have filled the White House with very elaborate Christmas decorations, ranging from centerpieces to a beautiful nativity scene. Melania Trump hand-picked all of the decoration, desiring to bring back more traditional Christmas decor. In fact, the theme of this year's decorations reflects over 200 years of Christmas traditions. The title of this year's decorations is "Time-Honored Traditions."
"As with many families across the country, holiday traditions are very important to us," said Melania Trump in a statement. "I hope when visiting the People's House this year, visitors will get a sense of being home for the holidays. On behalf of my husband and Barron, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and joyous holiday season."
Below is a video, posted on Twitter by Melania Trump, showing Christmas trees, lights, ornaments, and other decorations in the White House. At one point, the video zooms in on the Virgin Mary, Joseph, and baby Jesus, who is crowned.
LifeSite News writes that the Trump family's first presidential Christmas card says "Merry Christmas" rather than "Happy Holidays," which were the Obamas' preferred greeting.
This year, visitors to the White House will also discover a tribute to American service members and their families with the Gold Star Family Tree, which is decorated with gold stars and patriotic ribbons. Furthermore, the China Room is set up for a family Christmas dinner, with a table displaying china that once belonged to Ronald Reagan.
Last week, President Trump gave his first-ever Thanksgiving address as President of the United States. In his address, he mentioned God eight times, reversing President Obama's refusal to mention God even once in his last Thanksgiving proclamation of 2016.
President Trump's Thanksgiving address thanked God for his providence and asked God to continue blessing the United States. Trump noted that when the pilgrims first arrived in Plymouth almost four centuries ago, their first act was to pray.
“On their first Thanksgiving, they came together to rejoice after their harvest and praise God for his provision. Since then, Americans have always remembered the blessings of freedom and the glory of God,” said Trump, according to LifeSite.
During the first year of the Obama administration, Obama and the first lady considered removing the Nativity from the White House for the cause of "inclusivity." And rather than having Christmas cards with the word "Christmas" on them, the Obamas instead created religionless holiday cards, featuring the family dog without the word "Christmas," according to Fox News.
