Trump Targets Iran At Prayer Breakfast, Voices Solidarity With The Persecuted

WATCH: Trump Speaks at National Prayer Breakfast LIVESTREAM

Trump's words about religion and following God's teachings came a day after his White House struggled to react to a report that his staff secretary, Rob Porter, physically and otherwise abused his two ex-wives.

"We can all be heroes to everybody and they can be heroes to us".

In his 2010 remarks, President Obama called on "Americans of every faith, and no faith", to unite "around a common goal, a higher objective", specifically mentioning Hindus and Sikhs, as well as Jews, Catholics and Protestants. Throughout our history, we see the story of God's province. "In the courage of our fellow citizens, we see the power of God's love at work in our souls, and the power of God's will to answer all of our prayers".

Trump offered an upbeat note when he paid tribute to nine-year-old Sophia Marie Campa-Peters, who suffers from a rare disease that causes her to suffer from regular strokes and who was warned that she may lose the ability to walk.

Trump attended the prayer breakfast a few weeks after allegations broke that he had an affair with an adult film actress in 2006 and paid $130,000 to keep her quiet during the 2016 campaign. Millions and millions of people lifted Sophia up in their prayers. "Thank you, Sophia", Trump said.

Trump said, "Let us resolve to find the best within ourselves. I do so to remind myself that even in this noisy, conflicted, and sometimes acrimonious world of politics, that we want to treat everybody, everybody the way that we would like to be treated", said Crist.

"This is something that we've been confronting with this president for more than a year now".

Call of Duty Black Ops 4: everything we know so far
We recommend that you take Sellars' statements as a rumor and hope that Treyarch or Activision will provide details about it. The Switch port is apparently being handled by "a company familiar with COD games", so it should be in good hands.

Later in Trump's remarks last year, he vowed to "totally destroy" a law passed more than 60 years ago that bans tax-exempt churches from supporting political candidates - a nod to the religious right that helped sweep him into office.

But questions remain about what that means for Americans who don't subscribe to a faith.

The Obamacare demand had been that they either would support Barack Obama's abortion agenda or close their doors.

Trump referenced his hit NBC reality series in an early morning tweet in which he noted he planned to head over shortly to the event.

Trump placed Pakistan on a "Special Watch List" for its violations of religious freedom, and declared January 28, 2018, as Religious Freedom Day.

Many have cheered his appointment of conservative judges and his support of "religious liberty".

He's spoken at the March for Life, the Faith and Freedom Coalition's Road to Majority conference and the Value Voters Summit.

"Father, we pray that you will continue to strengthen the tie that binds our hearts together as a nation, and binds our hearts together to our friends and allies around the world", Demings said.
