President Donald Trump spoke Friday night at the Family Research Council’s annual Pray Vote Stand conference in Washington D.C. where he said he will “keep fighting for Christians as hard as I can.”
During his speech, the former Republican President said he delivered on every promise made to the Christian community. President Trump also said “Americans of faith are the soul of our country.”
Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, said that President Trump is “a man who fights for what he believes in. He has fought for this country. He has fought for you and me. He has fought for the unborn in America.”
Some of the priorities outlined by Trump included a promise to cut federal funding for any school “pushing critical race theory, transgender insanity, and other inappropriate racial, sexual, or political content on our children.” Trump also mentioned protecting Medicare and Social Security, showing those will be top issues in the Republican presidential primary and likely the general election.
