President Donald Trump’s Christmas message for 2020 seems to have flown under the radar in the mainstream media, but the December 3rd speech, dripping with gospel truth, continues to shake Christians who hear it.
While many previous presidents have taken to the National Christmas Tree lighting ceremony at the White House to wish a generic “Happy Holidays,” President Trump wished Americans a “very, very Merry Christmas” and declared the gift of God’s son to the world as the true meaning of the holiday.
“To every family across our nation, the First Lady and I want to wish you all a very, very Merry Christmas,” the president said, according to a transcript and video of the ceremony provided by LifeSiteNews.
“For Christians, this is a joyous time to remember God’s greatest gift to the world,” the president went on. “More than two thousand years ago, the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary. He said, ‘Do not be afraid, you have found favor with God.’ The angel told her that she would give birth to a baby boy, Jesus, who would be called the Son of the Most High. Nine months later, Christ was born in the town of Bethlehem. The Son of God came into the world in a humble stable.”
“As Christians everywhere know, the birth of our Lord and Savior changed history forever,” Trump continued. “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. 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. His Divine word still fills our hearts with hope and faith. And, Christians everywhere still strive to live by Jesus’ timeless commandment to his disciples, ‘Love one another.’”
The president concluded:
Above all, during the sacred season, our souls are full of thanks and praise for Almighty God for sending us Christ His Son to redeem the world.
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.
On behalf of Melania and the entire Trump family, Merry Christmas to all and best wishes for a very, very great and happy new year. Thank you.
LifeSite notes that, for unknown reasons, Trump’s powerful message is not available on the White House website and “can only be found with difficulty using Google’s search engine.”
“Whatever you think about Donald Trump, he laid down the Gospel message there,” said Catholic author and professor Dr. Taylor Marshall, adding that he did not “think there’s ever been a president in the history of the United States of America who has spoken so explicitly about Jesus Christ and his coming to redeem man.”
