The Trump Organization’s real estate firm Trump Realty threw a “holiday party” for the residents of its buildings in New York City Tuesday night. While the organization clearly thought the party ushered in Christmas cheer and posted pictures of it on social media, many other thought the event, right from its name, did not champion the cause of Christmas.

 The Trump Organization and Trump Realty put up pictures of the party on their Twitter pages in which executive vice president of the organization, Eric Trump and his wife Lara Trump were seen posing together. Picture of the executive director, Donald Trump Jr. and some images of the residents who had attended the part were also posted. 

In their post, Trump Realty stated that it was celebrating the holidays with New York City's Trump building residents and added: “Thank you all for a night filled with gratitude and joy.”

The owner of the organization, President Donald Trump reignited the "war on Christmas” last month, telling supporters "we're saying Merry Christmas again" now that he was the president. Ironically, Trump Realty was mocked for their party on Tuesday with people saying that it did not take forward the cause of Christmas that the president insisted on.

One person wrote in a tweet: “Uh oh! Some scrooges calling it a Holiday party instead of a Christmas party! I thought this was illegal and that Trump had saved Christmas single-handedly.”

While speaking to a packed crowd at the Values Voter Summit in Washington, D.C., the president had earlier argued that political correctness has gotten in the way of celebrating the holiday.

“We’re getting near that beautiful Christmas season that people don’t talk about anymore. They don’t use the word Christmas because it’s not politically correct,” he said.

“You go to department stores and they’ll say 'Happy New Year,' or they’ll say other things and it’ll be red, they’ll have it painted. But they don’t say — well guess what? We’re saying Merry Christmas again,” he further said.

The official Christmas card from the president and the first lady also wished Americans a “Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year” as opposed to the more generic greeting, “happy holidays”. Trump’s “war on Christmas” has been long-viewed as a way to gain and strengthen support from evangelicals and Christian conservative, the Hill reported.

He made comments similar to this in July at the Celebrate Freedom gathering at the Kennedy Center in Washington, D.C. "Our religious liberty is enshrined in the very first amendment in the Bill of Rights,” he said.

“The American founders invoked our creator four times in the Declaration of Independence. Benjamin Franklin reminded his colleagues at the Constitutional Convention to begin by bowing their heads in prayer. I remind you that we're going to start saying 'Merry Christmas' again," he stated at the time, the Independent reported.

Referring to these comments, those on Twitter expressed mock horror saying Trump’s organization itself was failing to champion Christmas and several called both the organization and the president hypocrites.
