Trump Assures Evangelical Leaders He's Delivering on Promises

JNN News, August 29, 2018

President Trump hosted a dinner of Evangelical leaders at the White House on 27 August 2018 and told them that he has delivered “just about everything I promised” on policies of religious liberty and defense of life. “The support you’ve given me has been incredible,” Trump told the group. Among those attending the event were the Rev. Franklin Graham, Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr., Faith and Freedom Coalition founder Ralph Reed, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson and Pastor Paula White, a prominent spiritual adviser to the president. Trump said under his administration, “the attacks on the communities of faith are over.” He cited actions to defend the religious conscience of health-care workers, teachers, students and religious employers; executive branch guidance on protecting religious liberty, and proposed regulations to bar taxpayer money from subsidizing abortion. “We’re standing for religious believers, because we know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the center of American life. And we know that freedom is a gift from our Creator.” The president also emphasized his administration’s efforts to stop religious persecution around the globe, citing action aimed at forcing Turkey to release Pastor Andrew Brunson, who is still being detained on charges of fomenting a coup. He and the administration say the charges are false. (Washington Post)
