The President began the message, saying, “Melania and I are delighted to wish America and the entire world a very merry Christmas.”

First Lady Melania Trump said, “At this time of year we see the best of America and the soul of the American people. We see children packing boxes to brighten the Christmases of our brave men and women in uniform; we see families reaching out to neighbors.”

The President said, “In the season of joy, we spend time with our families, we renew the bonds of love and goodwill between our citizens and most importantly we celebrate the miracle of Christmas. For Christians we remember the story of Jesus, Mary and Joseph that began more than 2,000 years ago.

“As the book of Isaiah tells us, for to us a child is born, to us a son is given and the government will be on his shoulders and he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. This good news is the greatest Christmas gift of all, the reason for our joy and the true source of our hope.”

The President concluded the message saying, “On behalf of Melania, myself, Barron and the entire Trump family, God bless you, God bless America and have a very, very merry Christmas and happy New Year.”

Both the President and the First Lady also posted several Christmas greetings on social media which you can see below.
