He says people are saying "Merry Christmas" again.

"We're confronting rogue regimes from Iran to North Korea and we are challenging the communist dictatorship of Cuba and the socialist oppression of Venezuela", Trump told the Values Voter summit, a conservative political conference.

"This morning I am honored and thrilled to return as the first sitting president to address this incredible gathering of friends", Trump said.

"Since the early days of the campaign, President Trump allied himself with values voters, promising to put an end to the eight years of relentless assault on the First Amendment". "If I'm president, you will see 'Merry Christmas" in department stores, believe me, believe me".

Last week, the Trump administration delivered on its commitment to religious liberty, with the Department of Health and Human Services rolling back on the ObamaCare contraceptive mandate, offering "full protection" to a range of companies and organizations that claim a "religious or moral objection" to providing birth control coverage.

President Donald Trump said Friday that the United States would maintain sanctions on Cuba and Venezuela until they restore political and religious freedom.

"You know we're getting into that attractive Christmas season that people don't talk about anymore", Trump said. "Well guess what, we're saying Merry Christmas again".

Trump went on to briefly pivot toward his push to cut taxes, calling for tax reform as a "Christmas gift".

Other people who are scheduled to attend are, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, and former National Security Advisor Sebastian Gorka, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Vicky Hartzler, Roy Moore of Alabama and reality stars Phil Robertson and his son Alan Robertson (Duck Dynasty).
