Another welcome change from the Obama era.
Via Daily Mail.
On Monday, the Trump family debuted their holiday card, which wishes Americans a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year, instead of the generic, more politically correct, ‘Happy Holidays.’
That’s different from last year’s card sent out by President Obama, which included a family photo and wished Americans a ‘joyous holiday season.’
The Trump card is signed by President Trump, first lady Melania Trump and even 11-year-old Barron and was displayed in the White House’s ‘Bookseller’s’ area, as the Christmas decorations were unveiled today.
The Merry Christmas card keeps Trump’s pledge to ‘say Merry Christmas again’ when he campaigned.
He repeated the pledge most recently in October at the Voter Values Summit when he said: ‘They don’t use the word ‘Christmas’ because it’s not politically correct,’ Trump said. ‘We’re saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.’
The Obamas, in contrast, always said ‘Happy Holidays’ in their cards, although their defenders say the president used ‘merry Christmas’ in speeches.
But the Trumps did make common cause with the Obamas by including Barron, in the same way Sasha and Malia had been in their predecessors’ cards.
While Barron did not play host alongside mom Melania today, he did guide Americans through this year’s Christmas tour.
That’s because an illustrated version of the first son is featured in this year’s White House Christmas booklet, given to the throngs of tourists and guests who visit the executive mansion during the holidays.
