It seems Christmas came early for former US president Donald Trump, who claimed during a rally in Georgia on Saturday that people are starting to say “Merry Christmas” now instead of the traditional phrase “Happy Holidays”.
The remarks follow a promise made by the Republican in 2015, in the run-up to the 2016 presidential election, where he said: “I’m a good Christian. If I become president, we’re gonna be saying Merry Christmas at every store.
“You can leave happy holidays at the corner.”
Six years later, it seems Trump is trying to claim every possible victory he can, including on what was dubbed the “war on Christmas”.
