"He opens up the paper each morning and sees our nation’s leaders giving a hundred billion dollars to Iran, or he opens the paper and some new school district has just eliminated the ability for its students to say the pledge of allegiance, or some fire department in some town is ordered by the mayor to no longer fly the American flag on the back of a fire truck," Eric Trump told The Stream's James Robinson. "Or, he sees the tree on the White House lawn has been renamed 'Holiday tree' instead of 'Christmas tree.' I could go on and on for hours. Those are the very things that made my father run, and those are the very things he cares about."

War On, Christmas!
"little silent christmas tree"
And what's a war on Xmas without a fight over what to call the tree?
Because one of the important Constitutional duties of President is the naming of the national Christmas Tree. Thomas Jefferson had his slaves cut one down, if I remember correctly. George Washington cut the first National Christmas Tree down with his little silver axe.
You could look it up.
Andrew Jackson stole the Indian's Christmas Tree. Well, some people say, anyway.....
Besides, if a "Christmas tree" was good enough for the baby Jesus, it's good enough for America!
(And yes, only some of this actually happened. Or, actually, none of it; but still, some people say....)
