There's no mistaking President Donald Trump's "Merry Christmas" message -- he wields it as a weapon against political correctness.For weeks, he's been liberally sprinkling his public remarks with Christmas tidings. Trump has long promised that this year would be different after what he saw as a trend toward giving the Christian celebration short shrift in favor of a more generic and inclusive "happy holidays" message.Trump has expressed concern about a diminished "Merry Christmas" message for years.In fact, that year Obama wished people "Merry Christmas" from his Twitter account and gave a video address with his wife in which he wished people a "Merry Christmas and happy holidays".Jeffress, who attended holiday events at the White House this year, said Trump's Christmas comments were one of many moves supported by evangelical Christians, who have cheered as Trump appointed conservative judges, sought to weaken rules governing political activity by religious groups that received tax exemptions, and declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel.Critics say Trump is using Christmas as a cudgel in cultural warfare.
