Donald Trump: People Will Say 'Merry Christmas' During My Presidency

Halloween is just around the corner, but Donald Trump's sights are set on a different holiday. The Republican presidential front runner has promised that when Christmas comes, he will do away with religiously inclusive language like "happy holidays" when he becomes president, he said on Oct. 21.

"I'm a good Christian, remember that, and I told you about Christmas," Trump said when addressing an evangelical crowd, according to WDAM. "And I guarantee if I become president we're going to be saying 'Merry Christmas' at every store. The 'happy holiday,' you can leave that over in the corner."

Trump referred to the Bible as his favorite book in a Bloomberg interview a couple months ago, but he failed to name any specific verses, CNN reports. Since then, he has reiterated multiple times how much he loves the Christian book.

On Sept. 25, Trump waved around his personal copy of the Bible at the Values Voter Summit while speaking to religious voters.

"I brought my Bible," the real estate mogul said while opening the book and showing the audience, according to CNN. "You know, it's the First Presbyterian Church, Jamaica (Queens) and this was written by my mother, with my name, with my address, with everything. I saw this and I had to bring it."

He went on to address the upcoming winter holiday season:

The word 'Christmas' -- I love Christmas. I love Christmas. You go to stores now, you don't see the word 'Christmas.' It says 'Happy Holidays' all over. Remember the expression, 'Merry Christmas?' You don't see it anymore. You're going to see it if I get elected, I can tell you right now.

Trump has fought back against the notion of political correctness for the duration of his presidential campaign, and this is one of his most appealing aspects to his supporters on the far right, notes WDAM.

"I'm so tired of this politically correct crap," Trump said in late September, according to Politico.
