With the official start of his presidency still weeks away, Donald Trump came out swinging at the greatest hero of American holidays.
“Santa, you’re old, you’re fat, you can’t keep giving presents to everyone, stick with America and dump those loser countries,” the president-elect tweeted to mixed reactions on Wednesday.
When asked to clarify his intentions, Trump responded, “America should be the only country with presents. Everyone knows we have the best milk and cookies. Have you ever eaten a dessert from a Vietnamese restaurant?”

“We don’t need you anymore, Santa, HO-HO-HO, how hard is that?” the president-elect tweeted earlier this morning.
When asked if he would stop Santa from delivering presents in America, Trump responded, “America will stop Santa from ruining Trump-mas 2016. I will call upon all Americans to fire their guns, rockets, and any heat-seeking sleigh smashers on December 24, starting at 9 p.m. We’re ready for you, fat man!”
