New pro-Trump PAC ad thanks Trump ‘for letting us say Merry Christmas again’

America First Policies

A political action committee (PAC) supporting President Trump is set to release a new ad that depicts multiple people thanking Trump for various reasons, including for “letting us say ‘Merry Christmas’ again.”

The ad, which comes as part of a $1 million ad buy from pro-Trump PAC America First Policies, is set to begin on Christmas Day.

{mosads}The commercial features numerous people thanking Trump for actions during his presidency, including “cutting my taxes,” “fixing our economy” and “supporting Israel.”

One man, who identifies himself as a veteran, thanks Trump for “reminding us to stand during our national anthem.”

“Thank you, President Trump, for letting us say ‘merry Christmas’ again,” a girl says at the end of the ad.

Trump has repeatedly promised supporters “we’re bringing Christmas back” and “we’re gonna be saying ‘merry Christmas’ again,” both during his presidential campaign and since he’s taken office.

He’s also taken shots at former President Obama for not saying “merry Christmas” during his presidency, even though Obama and former first lady Michelle Obama publicly wished Americans “merry Christmas” multiple times during Obama’s time in office.

A Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday found that 76 percent of Americans said the call for people to say “merry Christmas” instead of “happy holidays” is “made up for political purposes.”
