That’s different from last year’s card sent out by President Obama, which included a family photo and wished Americans a ‘joyous holiday season.’
The Trump card is signed by President Trump, first lady Melania Trump and even 11-year-old Barron and was displayed in the White House’s ‘Bookseller’s’ area, as the Christmas decorations were unveiled.
The Merry Christmas card keeps Trump’s pledge to ‘say Merry Christmas again’ when he campaigned.
He repeated the pledge most recently in October at the Voter Values Summit when he said: ‘They don’t use the word ‘Christmas’ because it’s not politically correct,’ Trump said. ‘We’re saying ‘Merry Christmas’ again.’
The Obamas, in contrast, always said ‘Happy Holidays’ in their cards, although their defenders say the president used ‘merry Christmas’ in speeches.
