Perkins on Trump’s ‘Merry Christmas’ Push: He Knew Faith’s Under Assault
PERKINS: "Well, Martha, one of the things we were talking about was the move of the embassy from tel aviv to Jerusalem. And, but the president was really striking there in the oval office. He said, hey, merry Christmas. You know, we can say merry Christmas again. And as you said, the white House has made it very prominent in all of their displays. The — not only the decorations but as you pointed out the Christmas card that the White House sends out which has been absent in the last 8 years. You know, we have moved away from the political correct happy holidays to merry Christmas. And I think, Martha, very important to understand this is about a lot more than just, you know, some assault on Santa Claus once a year. This is about an ongoing attack on religious freedom in the public square and when the president made this a center point of his campaign, as a candidate. The media kind of went what’s this all about? But it was very clear message that the president understood that the ability to express your faith in the public square was under assault. And he was going to be pushing back on that."
