On Thursday, as Americans gathered in Washington, D.C., for the National Tree Lighting, Trump addressed the crowd with a very simple message:

“For Christians, this is a holy season — the celebration of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. 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.”
