(LIFE SITE) Trump called Christmas a “Holy season” where Christians celebrate the “birth of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.” Unlike Obama, Trump managed to mention in one sentence in his first address the words “Savior” and “Jesus” and “Christ.”
Trump goes on, praising Jesus who “forever changed the course of human history.”
Whatever our beliefs, we know that the birth of Jesus Christ and the story of this incredible life forever changed the course of human history. There’s hardly an
aspect of our lives today that his life has not touched: art, music, culture, law, and our respect for the sacred dignity of every person everywhere in the world.
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.
That is the true source of joy this time of the year.
That is what makes every Christmas ‘merry.’
Trump hits a key truth of the Christian faith here, namely that it’s because of the birth of Jesus Christ that people can become adopted sons and daughters of God, which, indeed, is the source of not only Christmas joy, but any form of Christian joy.
Trump’s remarks here suggest that he accurately understands what Christmas is essentially about and why Christians celebrate it. Jesus is not simply the great moral leader, as Obama portrayed him to be, but a “Savior” who connects mankind with God and who has “forever” changed the world.
In his 2018 address, Trump returned to his theme of Christmas being a “sacred season” because of the birth of “Jesus Christ.” This year, he quoted a large passage of Scripture, something Obama never did in his entire eight years of addresses at this same event.
It is worth quoting Trump at length.
For Christians all across our nation, around the world, this is a sacred season that begins 2,000 years ago when Jesus Christ was born.
An angel declared to the shepherds tending their flocks, “Behold, I bring you good tidings, great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is a born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.” (Applause.)
There in Bethlehem, Mary and Joseph held in their hands the Son of God; the light of the world; and, through Him, the promise of eternal salvation.
Trump makes it clear that Christmas is the celebration of Jesus Christ as the “son of God” who is the “light of the world” and who brings “eternal salvation.” Again, this is essentially what Christmas is all about.
So, how does Obama’s treatment of Christmas in his tree lighting addresses compare with Trump’s? For Obama, Christmas is about honoring a great moral “leader” who brings a message of peace and love that everyone can understand and should imitate.
For Trump, Christmas is about celebrating the “savior” of the world who offers “eternal salvation” and who reveals to men and women their true dignity, namely, that each is called to be a “child of God.”
Whose message is more Christian and thus more on target regarding what Christmas is all about? In this case, clearly Trump is the winner.
Has Trump brought back the true meaning of Christmas to America as witnessed in his Christmas tree lighting addresses? The answer is a definitive “yes.”

Just before Christmas President Donald Trump fulfilled his promise to cut taxes for hard working middle class families by signing into law the "tax reform overhaul bill". Praise God for his leadership. Relieving burdens instead of placing burdens on the people is a mark of true godly leadership. What we're seeing now is such a breath of fresh air after having 8 long years of the oppressive Obama administration.

On Fox News last night, Jesse Watters suggested that there may be an anti-Trump “coup” going on.
Watters brought up the anti-Trump texts from Peter Strzok and another FBI agent, including the “insurance policy” wording, and concluded this is “smoking gun evidence” that agents investigating Trump believed it was their duty to protect the country from him:
“The investigation into Donald Trump’s campaign has been crooked from the jump. But the scary part is we may now have proof the investigation was weaponized to destroy his presidency for partisan political purposes and to disenfranchise millions of American voters. Now, if that’s true, we have a coup on our hands in America.”

It appears the Obama Administration weaponized the Federal Bureau of Investigation just like they weaponized the Internal Revenue Service.
The Obama administration used government agencies to wage a covert war on their political enemies. This is an all-out war.
We have a growing mountain of evidence to suggest the FBI was attempting to overthrow a duly elected president. We have evidence to suggest the FBI was protecting Hillary Clinton so she might be elected president.
There is no smoking gun just yet – but the evidence is staggering – it is simply staggering.
The danger the Trump Administration is facing from Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team of investigators is mounting. There are signs many on his team pledged their allegiance to Hillary Clinton.
“We are at risk of a coup d’etat in this country if we allow an unaccountable person with no oversight to undermine the duly-elected President of the United States,” Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL) said on the House Floor. “And I would offer that is precisely what is happening right now with the indisputable conflicts of interest that are present with Mr. Mueller and others at the Department of Justice.”
