GOP Christmas message makes questionable reference to ‘a new King’

The Republican National Committee raised some eyebrows Sunday in a Christmas message that some Twitter users perceived as comparing President-elect Trump to Jesus Christ.

In the passage that is garnering a lot of social media buzz, the GOP said:

“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. We hope Americans celebrating Christmas today will enjoy a day of festivities and a renewed closeness with family and friends.”

While some were quick to claim that the passage was referring to Trump, with the wording referring to “this Christmas” in particular. Others said that the “King” here merely is referring to Jesus Christ.
