Vice President Mike Pence is reiterating the support of President Donald Trump for the causes dear to Christian conservatives, saying in a speech that the 45th president will “never stop fighting” for them.
Gathered before hundreds at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” conference in Washington, D.C. Saturday evening, the vice president mentioned that President Trump carried states in the 2016 election that had not been won by a Republican in a generation, having turned the Democrats’ “blue wall red.” And Christian conservatives were an indispensable part of his electoral victory in those states and elsewhere, he noted.
Trump, Pence said, will “never stop fighting for the values and ideals that make this nation great.”
And “[Trump] is fighting hard for all of you,” he maintained, highlighting the president’s conservative cabinet picks like Ben Carson as HUD Secretary, his cutting of bureaucratic red tape and regulations, and his recent withdrawal from the Paris Climate Accords.
Trump gave a Thursday speech to the same group, arguing that “God’s glorious wisdom will shine through” because Americans voted for him into office.
“Under President Trump, America stands with Israel,” Pence continued, receiving enthusiastic applause.
