President Trump to Address 12th Annual Values Voter Summit
He previously spoke at the event in 2016 during the general election as the Republican presidential nominee and in 2015, during the Republican primary race. "You know we're getting near that attractive Christmas season that people don't talk about anymore". "We will defend our faith and protect our traditions". "The American founders invoked our creator four times in the declaration of Independence, four times".
FRC Action's 12 Annual Values Voter Summit is co-sponsored by AFA Action, American Values, Christian Healthcare Ministries, Association of Mature American Citizens, The D. James Kennedy Center for Christian Statesmanship, The Heritage Foundation, United in Purpose, Oklahoma Wesleyan University, and Family Research Council.
"We know that it's the family and the church - not government officials - who know best how to create strong and loving communities", Trump said.
"We are stopping cold the attacks on Judeo-Christian values", Trump said. You know, now they're changing back again. I do believe that he's a changed man, and that he's received the Gospel.' She said at a White House meeting she attended with about 25 others including Vice President Mike Pence, Pence vouched for his boss, telling them: 'This president is a believer.
A later speaker, former Rep. Michele Bachmann, vouched for Trump's religious awakening.
But Trump also struck several empathetic notes, offering condolences to the victims of the Las Vegas mass shooting with a quote from scripture and pledging support to the people of Texas, Florida and Puerto Rico, which have been ravaged by recent hurricanes. "I didn't have a schedule, but if I did have a schedule I would say we are substantially ahead of schedule".
But there was no hesitation among the crowd in its fervor for Trump, as he threw out plenty of red meat and hit many religious themes, despite showing an unfamiliarity with Scripture in the past. We will pass on the blessings of liberty, and the glories of God, to our children.
"In the last 10 months we have followed through on one promise after another", Trump said. "They don't use the word "Christmas" because it's not politically correct", he said, explaining that politically correct culture has made it hard to celebrate the holiday. He opened his speech by mentioning the tragedy in Las Vegas and the need for prayer at this hard time. You go to department stores and they'll say "Happy New Year" and they'll say other things. "They'll have it painted but they don't say - guess what, we're saying Merry Christmas again".
Addressing one of his core constituencies, Trump didn't hold back when discussing some of the key issues important to evangelicals and Christians around the country.
White-only Catholics voted for Mitt Romney by a slight margin, while President Trump won them overwhelmingly.
