One of President Donald Trump's spiritual advisers has claimed the President has "put prayer back into the White House."

Speaking on a Fox News show, the televangelist and pastor Paula Michelle White-Cain, better known as Paula White, asked: "Isn't it nice to be able to say Merry Christmas, and to put Jesus Christ back on the White House lawn?

"[Trump] is a man of faith, he is a believer, he's spiritual.


"Trump just hasn't put Christ back in Christmas, but he's also put prayer back into the White House. He's put justice and religious freedom back into our courts."


On Christmas Day, the US President took credit for making people proud to say "Merry Christmas" again.

He tweeted: "People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again. I am proud to have led the charge against the assault of our cherished and beautiful phrase. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!"

President Trump has long rallied against the phrase "Happy Holidays", which he deems excessively politically correct.


However his self-congratulatory tweet prompted many to recount countless examples of his predecessor, Barack Obama, wishing Americans a Merry Christmas during his presidency.
