Donald Trump's speech to US conservatives laced with Christmas spirit

President Donald Trump will speak at the 2017 Values Voter Summit. When was the last time you saw "Merry Christmas?' You don't see it anymore", Trump said on the campaign trail.

President Donald Trump on Friday pledged to an adoring crowd of evangelicals his commitment to religious liberty, as he declared that his administration was "substantially ahead of schedule" in delivering on campaign promises. "You go to department stores and they'll say 'Happy New Year, ' or they'll say other things and it'll be red, they'll have it painted".

Trump also denounced the Johnson Amendment, which prohibits houses of worship from engaging in political activities, promising that he will "not allow government workers to censor sermons, or target our pastors, our ministers, our rabbis". 'And as a Christmas gift to all of our hard-working families, we hope Congress will pass massive tax cuts for the American people'.

He says people are saying "Merry Christmas" again. "No more Merry Christmas on Starbucks", Trump told a Springfield, Illinois rally.

The FRC announced Tuesday that Trump was going to address the VVS, the billionaire real estate mogul being the first sitting president to do so in its history.

Mr Trump mentioned his nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, claiming Mr Gorsuch is in the mould of Justice Antonin Scalia, the conservative whose death in February 2016 created the vacancy.

Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, heralded that decision, arguing that it showed Trump is committed to "undoing the anti-faith policies of the previous administration and restoring true religious freedom".

Most recently, Trump rolled back an Obamacare rule that required employers to provide birth control coverage as part of their health insurances packages.
