Skip to comments.Trump: 'We Are Stopping Cold the Attacks on Judeo-Christian Values'

President Donald Trump told a gathering of pumped-up Christian conservatives on Friday that hes keeping his promise to stop government intrusion into peoples faiths and return the country to more traditional values.
In America, we dont worship government, we worship God, Trump declared to a cheering crowd at the Values Voters Summit in Washington. "How times have changed," he added, " but you know what? Now they are changing back again, just remember that."
Trump, the first sitting president to address the Values Voter Summit, cited the promises he's fulfilled, including the revocation of the Johnson Amendment, which prohibited religious nonprofit organizations from endorsing or opposing political candidates. He also cited his administration's efforts to allow employers the right to deny women insurance coverage for birth control.
We will not allow government workers to censor sermons or target our pastors, our ministers or our rabbis, he said. These are the people we want to hear from and they will not be silenced any longer.
"We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values," the president told the appreciative crowd.
In a not-so-subtle jab at the NFL, the president told the cheering crowd that "we respect our great American flag!"
And Trump returned to an issue that apparently causes him great heartburn because he complains about it a lot -- the use of "Happy Holidays" instead of "Merry Christmas."
"You know we're getting close to that beautiful Christmas season that people don't talk about anymore," Trump said. "They don't use the word, 'Christmas' because it's not politically correct," he complained. "Well, guess what? We're saying Merry Christmas again!"

So refreshing to hear after 8 years of the pretender.
God Bless President Trump.
I never minded the HH greeting too much as I felt like it covered TG, XS, and NY, until suddenly you weren’t ALLOWED to say Merry Christmas.
Soon to be Saint Trump if he keeps going. God protect him. Such courage!
I always laugh...because Holiday means “Holy Day.” The Happy Holidays greeting goes way back...many late 1800’s-early 1900’s postcards use the greeting...more so than “Merry Christmas”.
Agree with you, though...annoyed that saying Merry Christmas is now somehow offensive.
If people pronounced it “Happy Holy Days” that would be nice. Also could pronounce “Christmas” as “Christ Mass” instead of “Crissmus”.
