While liberals across the internet are encouraging others to “ruin Thanksgiving” by arguing politics during the Holiday, rather than spending Thanksgiving day being thankful to God for everything we have, our family, friends, loved ones, President Trump just did an amazing thing when he issued his presidential Thanksgiving proclamation.
The President invoked God six times in his first Thanksgiving proclamation, starting with the very first sentence when it states “On Thanksgiving Day, as we have for nearly four centuries, Americans give thanks to Almighty God for our abundant blessings.”
This is stark contrast to the past eight years as Barack Obama did not personally invoke God in his first Thanksgiving day proclamation, but only quoted George Washington, who spoke of the Almighty God. Throughout the years of Obama’s presidency, he personally referenced God in his Thanksgiving proclamations a total of five times in eight years, excluding quotes from others, such as Washington and Abraham Lincoln, but by 2016, Obama had stripped any mention of God from his last Thanksgiving proclamation, including the quotes from others that spoke of the Almighty God.
This goes back to other statements we have seen from President Trump, such as declaring that this nation would once again proudly say “Merry Christmas,” rather than the “politically correct” Happy Holidays.
A nation to which we have seen constant attacks against God is now being encouraged to find their way back to His grace by our president, as evidenced by countless statements made, including one President Trump made in October at the Values Voters Summitwhen speaking of his first ten months, he stated “We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values.” He went on to quote the Founding Fathers and the founding documents of the United States, by saying “America is a nation of believers and we are strengthened and sustained by the power of prayer.”
Another statement he made which national news downplayed but to which those of faith noted, was when he said “In America, we don’t worship government. We worship God.”
So today, as liberal writers attempt to destroy a day in which we should be thankful to the Almighty God for everything we have been given, by encouraging dissent and anger and hate, the rest of America can be thankful that President Trump has put the Almighty God back into the Presidential Thanksgiving day proclamation.
