Speaking to a room full of social conservatives Thursday, President Donald Trump declared that God’s truth will prevail against the “hatred” and “prejudice” that the “entrenched interest” has toward religion and faith in the United States.
Trump gave a keynote address at the Faith & Freedom Coalition annual “Road to Majority” conference at the Omni Shoreham Hotel in Washington, D.C. in which he proclaimed that the values of religious conservatives are “under siege” in the United States.
“We will always support our evangelical community and defend your right and the right of all Americans to follow and to live by the teachings of their faith. As you know, we are under siege,” Trump said. “You understand that, but we will come out bigger, better and stronger than ever.”
Trump warned the crowd that the “entrenched interest” and “failed bitter voices” in Washington will do everything in their power to try and foil “this righteous cause” and to try and “stop all of you.”
“They will lie. They will obstruct. They will spread their hatred and their prejudice but we will not back down from doing what is right,” Trump assured. “Because, as the Bible tells us, we know that the truth will prevail, that God’s glorious wisdom will shine through and that the good and decent people of this country will get the change they voted for and they so richly deserve.”
“Nothing worth doing ever came easy but we know how to fight better than anybody and we never ever will give up,” Trump continued. “We are winners and we are going to fight and win and have an unbelievable future … and it’s going to be together.”
Trump detailed many of the campaign promises that he has been able to fill thus far in the beginning months of his presidency.
After mentioning how he withdrew the U.S. from the Paris climate change agreement, reinstated the Mexico City Policy, appointed Justice Neil Gorsuch to the U.S. Supreme Court and listed other accomplishments, Trump spoke about the executive order on religious freedom that he signed last month.
