Donald Trump's speech to U.S. conservatives laced with Christmas spirit

Donald Trump's speech to U.S. conservatives laced with Christmas spirit

Trump is scheduled to speak on Friday morning at the opening ceremonies which kick off the three-day convening being held at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington D.C.

Still, the president's past support for reproductive rights, his poor attendance record at church and his two divorces put him at odds with numerous core values these same Christian voters espouse.

"Since the early days of the campaign, President Trump allied himself with values voters, promising to put an end to the eight years of relentless assault on the First Amendment", said Perkins. "They don't use the word Christmas because it's not politically correct", he said to strong applause and cheers from the audience at the Christian public policy conference, sponsored by the Family Research Council. 'And as a Christmas gift to all of our hard-working families, we hope Congress will pass massive tax cuts for the American people'.

'In America, we don't worship government, we worship God, ' Trump said.




Calling his efforts "substantially ahead of schedule", Trump declared that "we are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values". "If I'm president, you will see 'Merry Christmas" in department stores, believe me, believe me".

"Congress forgot what their pledges are", he said about health care, faulting them for requiring the Trump administration to take a "different route" on repealing Obamacare.

The annual political conference hosted by the Family Research Council brings together evangelical voters who were key to Mr. Trump's election win a year ago. Trump scraped that plan with a new rule that would exempt employers whose religious or moral beliefs conflict with providing contraceptive coverage.
