Former President Sends Controversial Christmas Message
Former President Donald Trump stirred up controversy once again as he sent out his Christmas greeting, taking shots at both world leaders and what he called “SICK thugs” in the United States. In his message, Trump criticized the “Open Borders, INFLATION, Afghanistan Surrender, Green New Scam, High Taxes, No Energy Independence, Woke Military, Russia/Ukraine, Israel/Iran, All Electric Car Lunacy,” and more, accusing them of wanting to destroy the once-great USA. The former president did not hold back, wishing those he criticized to “MAY THEY ROT IN HELL.” He ended his message by wishing everyone a Merry Christmas.
Trump’s Christmas Posts Stir Up Controversy
This was just one of several Christmas posts from Trump, who currently leads the race for the Republican nomination. Another post featured a scene from the movie Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, where Trump made a brief cameo. Trump also took a dig at former President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act legislation, calling it “too expensive” and promising to come up with a better and less expensive alternative. These posts have generated both support and criticism from various quarters.
Trump Maintains Strong Lead in Republican Nomination Contest
Despite the controversy surrounding his Christmas posts, Trump’s lead in the Republican nomination race remains strong. According to the latest Fox News survey, Trump’s support stands at 69%, up 7 points since November and a significant 26 points since February. In contrast, his rivals combined receive less than one-third of GOP primary voters’ support. Ron DeSantis receives 12% support, Nikki Haley gets 9%, Vivek Ramaswamy 5%, Chris Christie 2%, and Asa Hutchinson 1%. Trump’s dominance in the race continues to solidify his position as the front-runner.
