“I think the president was very, very, much on the same page,” said Goodman, a retired Army officer who lives in Virginia.
“The president, like the first president, has to make it clear that we are not going to have a war on Christmas, and he did.
And that’s the way it is going to be.”
Goodman was referring to the war on “War on Christmas” waged by the United States government, including the government’s attempts to stamp out religious and ethnic celebrations of Christmas in the wake of the Newtown, Conn., shooting of 20 children and six adults by a disturbed man who called himself “Santa Claus.”
The administration has gone so far as to sue many small-business owners for refusing to serve Christmas cards to their customers.
The government has also attempted to shut down a variety of popular Christmas markets and churches in the U.S., and in January, the U!
Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit ruled that it was illegal to bar a group of Muslim men from entering a mosque.
In his column, Goodman said that the Trump administration was in fact “on the same side of the Christmas equation as the first Bush administration.”
“The president is trying to push the country back into the 1950s when they were trying to fight the Cold War and make the Cold Wars go away,” Goodman wrote.
“Now they are going to try to fight Christmas, but in a very different way.
They will try to make Christmas a national holiday and they will try, and I hope, to win, a war against Christmas.”
Goodmann added that the president had been “working overtime” on his strategy of “the war on all Christmas” during the campaign, but that it is “time to get back to work.”
“We’re all going to lose the war, and we’re going do it with a big bang,” he said.
“We’re not going out to make this a big-bang Christmas.
We’re going out with a small-bore, simple, straightforward strategy.”
He said that he believed the administration was “in the business of creating the illusion that we’re the best country in the world, and if we don’t get it right, we’re all screwed.”
Goodmen is not alone in his belief that the Christmas war will fail.
The Pew Research Center reported in January that in 2016, just over half of the population of the United Kingdom (54 percent) believed Christmas was “not a religious holiday.”
In a statement last week, President Donald Trump claimed that Christmas was the “most popular holiday of the year” in the United State, and that his administration “is not waging war on it, but instead is making Christmas a day of gratitude for all of us.”
“Americans celebrate the season of Christmas, not to mention other religious and spiritual holidays like Easter and the Nativity, but they don’t celebrate Christmas like it is their holiday,” Trump said.
“We are making it our mission to keep the faith alive, to celebrate our gifts, and to remind our children and our neighbors that Christmas is the most important holiday in the year.
I believe this is the right way to honor our country, and as long as we’re on the right side of history, our country will win.”
