Earlier this week, the Republican National Committee released a statement via chairman Reince Priebus:
“Over two millennia ago, a new hope was born into the world, a Savior who would offer the promise of salvation to all mankind. Just as the three wise men did on that night, this Christmas heralds a time to celebrate the good news of a new King.”
Wait. Is the RNC referring to Donald Trump as the “new king?” Some believe they were. In fact, the statement kicked-off a huge debate on social media.
According to CNN, incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer claims the reference had nothing to do with Trump. Spicer told CNN that, “Christ is the King in the Christian faith.”
Christ is the King. He was born today so we could be saved. Its sad & disappointing you are politicizing such a holy day. https://t.co/NEOkLNd1Mz

Oddly enough, the RNC’s Christmas message from Priebus made no mention of a “King.” It seems as thought the RNC and Donald Trump trying to destroy American democracy, and turn our country into a monarchy. Clearly, we cannot stand by and allow this to happen. #NeverTrump #NotMyPresident
