‘Faith, Family, and Freedom’: Here’s a Look at How Republicans Are Celebrating Christmas

Republican leaders from across the country took to Twitter to issue their Christmas greetings to their constituents.

From celebrating quoting scripture to thanking the members of the military, here is a look at some of the Christmas greetings from Republican leadership.

President Donald Trump
Although President Trump didn’t get to make his annual trip to Florida to celebrate Christmas in Mar Lago due to the tumultuous government shutdown, he did still take the time to send out a Christmas greeting on Twitter.

He even joined First Lady Melania Trump to speak with children as they tracked Santa’s sleigh on Christmas Eve.

Republican Congressmen
On January 3, Congressman Kevin McCarthy will take over as House Minority Leader, and while he probably would have preferred the role of Speaker of the House, his Christmas greeting was filled with optimism and love.

“Christmas is a reminder of God’s love for all people, expressed in the birth of a child, Jesus Christ. Christmas is also a reminder of our duty to love all people. Every one of us, no matter our beliefs or background can share and celebrate in this season. In that spirit of love, I wish you a safe and Merry Christmas.”

Congressman Chip Roy (R-Texas) got in on the Christmas fun, sharing a hilarious holiday greeting from the United States Marine Corps.

The video is a hilarious rendition of the “12 days of Christmas” from the point of view of a U.S. Marine.

Republican Senators
Senator Rand Paul (R-Ky.) took to Twitter to share a freedom-loving message from him and his wife, Kelley Ashby Paul.

“We wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a happy holiday season. As we reflect at the special time, we are grateful for the blessings of faith, family, and freedom. We also send our heartfelt greetings to our military men and women who cannot be with their loved ones this year. We wish you all joy and peace in the new year.”

In typical fashion, Senator Marco Rubio tweeted scripture. He pulled a verse from Isaiah about the birth of Jesus.

Senator Joni Ernst (R-Iowa) served as a lieutenant colonel in the Army National Guard before entering politics. She took the time to thank those who are serving in the military, especially those who are away from family.

In South Carolina Senator Tim Scott’s greeting, he sent a reminder that Christmas is greater than politics, no matter what political argument flares up during the family meal.

Despite the rocky political climate, it seems as though the Christmas season has Republicans eyeing unity and thanksgiving instead of the division typically seen in Washington.
