It’s only June, and you’re probably sweating your behind off. Christmas isn’t coming for another seven months, and a Donald Trump presidency isn’t coming until January of 2017.
What The Donald thinks about the secular left’s war on Christmas is probably the last thing on your mind, given that you’re probably either frantically gearing up for vacation with the kids or lining up a new psychiatrist to get some therapy for afterwards. Rest assured, though, Trump does think about the war on Christmas.
In a radio interview in the heat of 2015, Trump declared war on those who would make war on Christmas, saying he went out of his way to use the name of the holiday instead of saying “Season’s Greetings.”
“I go out of my way to use the word ‘Christmas,’” Trump told Yellowhammer Radio host Cliff Sims.
“There’s an assault on anything having to do with Christianity,” he continued.
“They don’t want to use the word Christmas anymore at department stores … There’s always lawsuits and unfortunately a lot of those lawsuits are won by the other side.” (H/T Mediaite)
The comments fit with Trump’s recent push against anti-Christian sentiment in America.
“The Christians are being treated horribly because we have nobody to represent the Christians,” Trump said in a recent interview. “Believe me, if I run and I win, I will be the greatest representative of the Christians they’ve had in a long time.”

He also bemoaned President Obama’s refusal to allow Christian refugees from Syria to enter the country while simultaneously allowing a flood of Muslim refugees to enter — many of whom haven’t had their backgrounds checked.
“I learned this weekend … that if you’re a Christian living in Syria you can’t come into this country,” Trump said.
“Yet, if you are a Muslim living in Syria, who are not under attack, they can come in. We have Christians being beheaded all over the world by ISIS. In Syria and in Iraq, in particular, those Christians can’t come into this country.”
If there’s one thing we’ve discovered during this campaign, it’s that Donald Trump isn’t afraid to stand up for what he holds dear. That includes Christmas, and you can bet a Trump presidency won’t be the type to hold a “winter solstice” ceremony on the White House lawn.
