Donald Trump understands that the evangelical vote is going to Ben Carson, Ted Cruz and a few other candidates at this point in time so it appears he's reaching out his hands and offering an olive branch to them. "Vote for me and I will make Christmas great again!"
Usually the war on Christmas is left in the hands of Fox News and their pundits to fight, but Donald has mobilized his troops to take up arms against the phony narrative. Hey, why not? It was the eve before the Fox Business Debate and I'm sure he'll bring it up during the political extravaganza.
Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump weighed in on the day's controversy on Monday, floating the prospect of boycotting Starbucks after the coffee giant announced it would abandon its Christmas-themed cups.
"I have one of the most successful Starbucks, in Trump Tower. Maybe we should boycott Starbucks? I don't know. Seriously, I don't care. That's the end of that lease, but who cares?" Trump told a crowd in Springfield, Illinois, on Monday. "If I become president, we're all going to be saying Merry Christmas again, that I can tell you. That I can tell you."
Starbucks said earlier that it had removed "symbols of the season" used in the past, which have included reindeer and ornaments, in favor of a simple, two-toned red cup. Some Christian leaders have long attacked secular businesses for waging a "War on Christmas" and prevented customers and employees from sharing Christmas greetings.
Trump previously pledged to his allegiance to Christmas during a campaign rally in October.
"I guarantee if I become president, we're going to be saying 'Merry Christmas' at every store," he had said.
