President Donald Trump wished his supporters a merry Christmas at a Saturday rally in Valdosta, Georgia, and suggested that a Joe Biden administration would want to take the word "Christmas" out of Americans' vocabulary.

"Let me begin by wishing you all a merry Christmas — remember the word," Trump said, Business Insider reports.

"Remember we started five years ago and I said, 'You're going to be saying Christmas again.' We say it proudly again. Although they'll be trying to take that word again out of the vocabulary. We're not going to let them do that," the president continued at his rally.

Fighting against the "war on Christmas" was one of Trump's key themes during his first presidential run in 2016 and during his presidency.

In a speech four years ago, he accused Democrats and President Barack Obama of "selling Christianity down the tubes" and promised to make department stores use the words "merry Christmas" in their marketing material, according to Business Insider.

Trump later claimed victory in the battle against those he accused of "trying to take Christmas out of Christmas" in a 2017 speech.

"You'd go around, you'd see department stores that have everything red, snow, beautiful, ribbons, bows. Everything was there but they wouldn't say 'Merry Christmas.' They're all saying Merry Christmas again, you remember? I went through that during the campaign: 'They're going to say Merry Christmas again.' And they are," Trump said.
