Donald Trump wishes a happy Kwanzaa to those celebrating

Donald Trump wishes a happy Kwanzaa to those celebrating”

Trump wished "happy holidays" for years before using the words "Christmas" on Twitter in 2011 - the same year hes said he was interested in running for President.

The president issued a statement Tuesday marking the beginning of the seven-day festival. "Together, let us celebrate during this joyous time the richness of the past and look with hope toward a brighter future", Trump said. The holiday is marked by 7 days of candle lighting to celebrate the 7 principles of the holiday, which CNN notes are "unity (umoja), self-determination (kujichagulia), collective responsibility (ujima), cooperative economics (ujamaa), goal (nia), creativity (kuumba) and faith (imani)".

In Obama's statements about the holiday, he consistently emphasized the values that all Americans can find in culture celebrated on Kwanzaa. On day one the candle represents Umoja, unity for family, nation and race.

"People are proud to be saying Merry Christmas again".

Obama used similar language spotlighting African-American values in his other presidential statements about Kwanzaa-and his comments caught Trump's wrath years ago. "MERRY CHRISTMAS!" Trump tweeted on Christmas Eve.

During the holiday season, Trump has argued he made it OK to wish people a "Merry Christmas" again.
