Trump: ‘For Christians, This Is A Joyous Time To Remember God’s Greatest Gift To The World’

“To every family across our nation, the First Lady and I want to wish you all a very, very Merry Christmas,” Trump said.

“For Christians, this is a joyous time to remember God’s greatest gift to the world,” he continued.

“More than 2,000 years ago, the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary. He said, ‘Do not be afraid, you have favor with God.”

The President continued with the biblical story.

“The angel told her that she would give birth to a baby boy, Jesus, who would be called the Son of the Most High,” Trump continued. “Nine months later Christ was born in the town of Bethlehem.”

“The Son of God came into the world in a humble stable,” Trump added.

Then he explained how this miraculous event changed history and everything man understood prior.  

“As Christians everywhere know, the birth of our Lord and Savior changed history forever,” Trump declared.

Trump On The Meaning Of The Birth Of Christ

Trump said, “At Christmas, we give thanks to God, and that God sent His only Son to die for us and to offer everlasting peace to all humanity.”

President Trump observed how the birth of Christ and its meaning are still with us in full today. 

“More than two millennia after the birth of Jesus Christ, His teachings continue to inspire and uplift billions and billions of people all over the globe,” Trump said.

“His divine words still fills our hearts with hope and faith,” he added.

Redeem The World

Trump then reminded us of Christ’s teaching.

“And Christians everywhere still strive to live by Jesus’s timeless commandments to His disciples: love one another,” Trump said.

“Above all during this sacred season, our souls are full of thanks and praise for Almighty God for sending us Christ, his Son to redeem the world,” the President said.

President Trump finished,  “Tonight we ask that God will continue to bless this nation and we pray that He will grant every American family a Christmas season full of joy, hope, and peace.”
