“And remember the last time I did this,” Trump said. “This started two and a half years ago when I just started.”

Trump then said, “People were not saying ‘Merry Christmas’ anymore. The big store chains weren’t saying ‘Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas.’ They weren’t doing it. They weren’t saying ‘Merry Christmas.’ Now they’re saying Merry Christmas again.”

When Trump was running for president in 2016, he repeatedly said that if he became president, Americans would be saying “Merry Christmas” again.

His rally drew a packed house of supporters Thursday. (RELATED: Trump Steps Up, Puts His Hand On His Heart, And Drops A Line That Makes The Entire Room Howl)
