Trumps attend church service on Christmas Eve
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. — Donald Trump kicked off Christmas by attending a midnight service at an Episcopal church in Palm Beach, Florida.
The president-elect and his wife, Melania, arrived Saturday night at the Church of Bethesda-by-the-Sea. The soon-to-be first couple were married at the church in 2005.
Trump has bemoaned the increased use of the term “Happy Holidays” in place of “Merry Christmas” as a sign that Christianity is under attack. As president, he’s said, he’ll reverse the trend.
The president-elect is spending the holidays at his Florida estate, Mar-a-Lago, where he’s been holding meetings with senior staff, advisers and business executives.
Trump tweeted wishes for a “Happy Hanukkah” earlier Saturday and a “Merry Christmas” wish early Sunday.
