& Donald TrumpThe official Republican National Committee's Christmas statement appeared to compare the birth of Jesus with the election of Donald Trump. The statement read "Merry Christmas to all! 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." The RNC denied the connection, but it's difficult to read the statement without coming to the conclusion that they were comparing the birth of Jesus to the "good news of a new king."
