To Make America Great Again, You Have To Make Christmas Merry Again

Fundraising emails are a common sight this time of the year, but this latest, landing even in inboxes of Jewish recipients, stands out as a bit unusual.

“Wish the First Family a Merry Christmas,” reads the message, pasted over a photo of Donald and Melania Trump in front of what seems to be the national Christmas tree on the Ellipse south of the White House.

For those interested in signing the Trumps’ greeting card, a quick click leads to the next page, where, under the title reading “We’re saying Merry Christmas again!” they’ll be offered a choice of donations ranging from $35 to $2700, all directed at the Trump Make America Great Committee, a joint fundraising group of the Trump campaign and the RNC.
