My fellow Americans. Melania and I are delighted to wish America and the entire world a very Merry Christmas. 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 in need, and we see communities coming together to serve one another. 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 This good news is the greatest Christmas gift of all, the reason for our joy, and the true source of our hope. This Christmas season we celebrate our blessings as Americans, and we pray for peace all over the world. 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.
