Donald Trump will join a who's who of the religious right Friday at the Values Voter Summit, as he becomes the first sitting president to address the event, sponsored by the anti-LGBT Family Research Council.

"We're getting near that attractive Christmas season that people don't talk about any more, they don't use the word Christmas because it is not politically correct", Trump said.

Trump zeroed in on this subject much more during his presidential campaign than he has as president. "We're saying Merry Christmas again".

The president made an appearance at the convention past year, but he was then only a presidential nominee.

"In the last 10 months we have followed through on one promise after another", Trump said.

Trump, facing difficultly in getting Congress to work with him on a host of issues, has focused more on his political base lately, catering to the conservative voters who vaulted him from reality TV star to President. Trump scraped that plan with a new rule that would exempt employers whose religious or moral beliefs conflict with providing contraceptive coverage.

The annual political conference hosted by the Family Research Council brings together evangelical voters who were key to Mr. Trump's election win a year ago.
