Donald Trump promised to “defend Christmas” as he talked with radio host Cliff Sims saying,“There’s an assault on anything having to do with Christianity. They don’t want to use the word Christmas anymore at department stores.”
“There’s always lawsuits and unfortunately a lot of those lawsuits are won by the other side,” Trump added. “I will assault that. I will go so strongly against so many of the things, when they take away the word Christmas.”
Adding: “I go out of my way to use the word Christmas.”
“I’ve even had people that do this very professionally,” Trump recalls, “they say, ‘oh don’t mention the word Christmas’…I get up there, I mention Christmas before I even start speaking. So there’s a great assault on Christianity in so many ways.”
Trump also noted that the “assault on Christianity” goes as far as the government and its policies.
“There’s real assault on Christianity when you look at what’s going on in Syria and ISIS,” Trump explained. “Do you know that if you’re a Christian from Syria, you cannot get into the United States? If you’re a Muslim from Syria, it’s one of the easiest places to get into the United States from.”
The host asked him to say something about his faith, and Trump said he is “somebody that believes very strongly in the Bible, believes in God.”
“I’m protestant,” he stated. “I’m Presbyterian to be exact. And I grew up in Sunday school, and I did all of the things that you probably did. And I believe very, very strongly. I’m a big believer in the Bible.”
Trump also admitted that he doesn’t go to church every Sunday, because of his packed schedule, according to The Daily Caller.
“I’m not sure numbers of times going to church,” Trump said. “I go as often as I can. As you can imagine, I have a schedule that’s not like a normal person’s schedule. My schedule is a killer. But I go as often as possible.”
