President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania celebrated the true meaning of Christmas at the annual National Tree Lighting Ceremony on Thursday evening, November 30th. The spectacular event was filled with holiday music, sparkling Christmas lights, and a beautiful crowd filled with “children of God,” as President Trump noted.
Although the giant, decorated Colorado Blue Spruce was absolutely breathtaking, President Trump stole the show with his meaningful speech honoring our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
Trump began, “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. Whatever our beliefs, we know that the birth of Jesus Christ and the story of his incredible life forever changed the course of human history.”
He continued, “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,” he said. “That is the true source of joy this time of the year. That is what makes every Christmas ‘merry.’ And now, as the President of the United States, it’s my tremendous honor to finally wish America, and the world, a very ‘Merry Christmas!’”
Franklin Graham responded to Trump’s Christmas speech, praising the President for his outspoken Christian faith.
Graham stated, “Never in my lifetime have we had a [President of the United States] willing to take such a strong outspoken stand for the Christian faith like [President Donald Trump]. We need to get behind him with our prayers.”
