President Trump gave some fantastic comments on Saturday, reminding Americans of a key founding principle: Americans worship God, not government bureaucrats.

At the John F. Kennedy Center for Performing Arts, Trump denounced attempts "to centralize authority among the hands of a small few in our nation's capital."

"Bureaucrats think they can run over your lives, overrule your values, meddle in your faith, and tell you how to live, what to say, and where to pray," Trump said. "But we know that parents, not bureaucrats, know best how to raise their children and create a thriving society."

Trump also stated that the basis of civil society is "families and churches" rather than the government, and gave the following applause-inducing line:

"In America, we don't worship government, we worship God," Trump said as the audience began chanting "USA! USA! USA!"

After briefly getting into the founders' embrace of religion and prayer, Trump said to cheers, "We are going to start saying Merry Christmas again."

The president's remarks Saturday were a vigorous defense of the Judeo-Christian values that America was founded upon and a strong rebuke of the utopian statism that undergirds the Left's worldview. It would do the country good if Trump could trade the tweets of gifs of him smacking around CNN for more statements about key constitutional principles like he offered this weekend at the Kennedy Center for Performing Arts.
