Trump Calls Faith 'Central' to American Life

2018-02-08 22:10
President Donald Trump says faith is "central to American life and liberty." Trump is speaking Thursday (Feb. 8, 2018) at the National Prayer Breakfast, a high-profile annual event that brings together faith leaders, politicians and dignitaries. He spoke about how he sees the "power of God's love" in Americans, citing the responses to recent hurricanes and mass shootings. Trump also said Americans are a "tireless force for justice and peace" citing the fight against Islamic State militants who he said target "Christians, Jews, religious minorities and countless Muslims." The president enjoys strong support from evangelical Christians, who helped power his White House win. Christians have cheered Trump during his first year in office as he appointed conservative judges, sought to weaken rules governing political activity by certain religious groups and declared Jerusalem the capital of Israel.
