President Trump takes credit for people saying the words ''Merry Christmas'' again
We owe him, so much.
US President Donald Trump has announced that it is he who has ''led the charge'' for people to utter the phrase ''Merry Christmas'' again, taking full credit for which in a recent tweet.
Trump took to Twitter to make the announcement, stating:
“People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again. I am proud to have led the charge against the assault of our cherished and beautiful phrase. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!”
The President posted a series of tweets from his Florida estate on Christmas Eve, those of which mentioned fake news, the Tax Cut/Reform Bill and a clip of a recent speech of his uttering his cherished festive phrase.
Trump mentioned his disdain at the lack of use of the Christian phrase quite recently, mentioning at the at the Family Research Council’s Values Voter Summit in Washington:
“We’re getting near that beautiful Christmas season that people don’t talk about anymore. They don’t use the word Christmas because it’s not politically correct.''
Fellow Twitter users were quick to point out that Obama used the phrase every year during his presidency, using a series of the ex-President's tweets as their rebuttal.
To all those gathered in celebration today, Merry Christmas.

As well as examples of tweets posted by Trump using phrases other than ''Merry Christmas''.
Trump has always been critical of ideas surrounding political correctness in general, which many believe to be a dig at his tolerant predecessor, Barack Obama.
However, it seems that the never-forgiving social media account of Twitter is the gift everyone can be thankful for this Holiday Season Christmas.
