Trump has even been critical of President Barack Obama's approach to the holiday, and many people have been pointing out how the Obama's Christmas cards read "happy holidays" instead of "merry Christmas".

Without using the phrase "War on Christmas", Trump was essentially drawing a battle line in a century-old debate that is not just about the 25th of December, but a fundamental disagreement over whether the United States is a secular or a Christian country. "On behalf of my husband and Barron, I want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and joyous holiday season".

"The Christmas story begins 2000 year ago with a mother, a father, their baby son, and the most extraordinary gift of all, the gift of Gods love for all of humanity".

"Whatever our beliefs, we know that the birth of Jesus Christ and the story of this incredible life forever changed the course of human history", Mr. Trump told a crowd along the National Mall near the White House. Fifty-six Lego gingerbread houses, one for each state and US territory, were nestled in the branches of the trees that decorated the State Dining Room. The theme for this year is "Time-Honored Traditions", and included in that is a attractive nativity scene. "That is what makes every Christmas merry?". "We are called to serve one another, to love one another, and to pursue peace in our hearts and all throughout the world".

"Living trees have been used as the National Christmas Tree since 1973, and before that from 1924-1953".

The nearly 100-year-old tradition dates back to the 30th president of the U.S., President Calvin Coolidge, in 1923.
