Attendees at the far right wing Christian Values Voter Summit went wild Friday morning as President Donald Trump plied them with religion-based platitudes, culminating in what they really wanted to hear: "We are saying "Merry Christmas" again", Trump announced.

"We're getting near that lovely Christmas season that people don't talk about any more, they don't use the word Christmas because it is not politically correct", Trump said.

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 into a department store. They don't use the word Christmas because it's not politically correct", he said to strong applause and cheers from the audience at the Christian public policy conference, sponsored by the Family Research Council. He also said he hoped Congress will give the American people a Christmas gift by passing his tax cut proposal. "No more Merry Christmas on Starbucks", Trump told a Springfield, Illinois rally. Speaking before the group in 2015, Trump got booed when he referred to Sen.

He says people are saying "Merry Christmas" again. This will be the first time a sitting president has appeared at the conservative meeting.

"In the last 10 months we have followed through on one promise after another", Trump said.

The president made an appearance at the convention previous year, but he was then only a presidential nominee.

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