(KFTK) - President Donald Trump spoke at a rally in Sunrise, Fla. and vowed he won't allow a name change for Thanksgiving despite the left wanting to start something similar to the "war on Christmas." 

"As we gather together for Thanksgiving, you know, some people want to change the name Thanksgiving," Trump stated on Tuesday night. "They don't want to use the term Thanksgiving. And that was true also with Christmas. But now everybody's using Christmas again. Remember this?

"But now we're going to have to do a little work on Thanksgiving. People have different ideas. Why it shouldn't be called Thanksgiving. But everybody in this room, I know, loves the name Thanksgiving. And we're not changing."

Trump continued, saying "Americans have so much to be thankful for," this year.

He also bashed "the radical left Democrats" for "trying to rip our nation apart," citing both the "Russia hoax" and these House impeachment hearings.
