Trump doesn’t wear his faith on his sleeve, but he has certainly been a great defender of religious liberty as a president. Evangelical leaders seem to agree. In fact, they say he is the best they’ve seen in a long time.
One News Now reports:
Evangelical leaders: Trump is generation’s most ‘faith-friendly pres.’
In less than a month, President Donald Trump was called the most “faith-friendly president” in this generation by two of America’s top evangelical leaders.
Most recently, evangelical leader Paula White – who serves as a member of the advisory board on the White House Faith and Opportunity Initiative, which is being established by Trump’s new executive order – described the president as America’s greatest champion of Christianity and religious freedom in modern history.
“He is the most – as many people have said – the most faith-friendly president that they have known in their lifetime,” White told CBN News. “We had over 1,800 faith leaders come through the White House alone. I believe this year we will double or triple that, so he continues to reach out first and foremost in prayer.”
Tapping America’s Christian roots
Trump’s eagerness to let leaders of the faith community play influential roles in the nation’s capital to strengthen American society was emphasized in his recent proclamation.
“I will soon be signing an executive order to create a faith initiative at the White House,” Trump announced, according to CBN News. “The faith initiative will help design new policies that recognize the vital role of faith in our families, our communities and our great country.”
This is a breath of fresh air to millions of Americans and other Christians around the world.
