President Trump delivered a powerful message about the birth of Jesus Christ as he addressed the crowd during the lighting of the National Christmas Tree.
“In 1923, President Calvin Coolidge lit the first National Christmas tree,” President Trump began, as published by LifeSiteNews. “Later that night, African-American community centers held an outdoor worship service on these grounds, and during that service, the Washington Monument was illuminated with a beautiful cross, a powerful reminder of the meaning of Christmas.”
President Trump then spoke of the three wise men and how the birth of Christ inspires us all to love one another with open hearts.
“More than two thousand years ago, a brilliant star shown in the east. Wise men traveled far and they came and they stood under the star where they found the Holy Family, in Bethlehem,” the president said. “As the Bible tells us, when the wise men had come into the house, they saw the young child with Mary His mother, and fell down and worshipped Him. Christians give thanks that the Son of God came into the world to save humanity. Jesus Christ inspires us to love one another with hearts full of generosity and grace.”
“Joining us today are David and Sharron Hudson of the Salvation Army,” the president said. “Each year, through their Angel Tree program, the Salvation Army brings new gifts to more than 600,000 children. David and Sharron are an inspiration to us all. And, David and Sharron, thank you very much for being with us. Thank you.”
“At Christmas we remember this eternal truth: Every person is a beloved child of God,” he concluded. “As one grateful nation we praise the joy of family, the blessings of freedom, and the miracle of Christmas. On behalf of Melania and our entire family, Merry Christmas, and God bless you all.”
Thank you, President Trump and First Lady Melania for representing us in such a beautiful and truthful way. Jesus is the reason for the season, and He came to die on the cross for everyone.
May God bless Trump and his family as they go through this trial by fire. And bless Melania for defending her son.
