The Rushmore Report: Donald Trump’s Speech to Evangelicals


If President Donald Trump was in any way concerned about what former FBI Director James Comey might be telling the Senate Intelligence Committee at the same time he gave his speech to the Faith & Freedom Coalition’s “Road to Majority” Conference last week, he certainly didn’t let it show. The president gave a powerful speech, and his audience responded with equal forcefulness.

“We’re under siege, you understand that,” he said during his opening remarks. “But we will come out bigger and better and stronger than ever.”

Throughout the 35-minute speech the audience gave the president standing ovations as he discussed rolling back enforcement of the so-called Johnson Amendment, fighting for religious freedom, defending life, and fighting against terrorism. But the speech ended with the following statement.

“We understand that a nation is more than just geography. A nation is the sum of its citizens: their hopes, their dreams, their values, and their prayers. America is a land rich with history and culture, and filled with people of courage, kindness, and strength. Though we have many stories we all share at home, the one thing we do share is one beautiful destiny.

Whether we are black, or brown, or white, we all bleed the same red blood. We all salute the same great American flag. And we are all made by the same Almighty God. We face many challenges, there are many hills and mountains to climb, but one by one we will scale those summits, and we will get the job done and get the job done correctly.

We will prove worthy of this very, very important moment in history. As long as we have pride in our beliefs, courage in our convictions, and faith in our God, then we will not fail. And, as long as our country remains true to its values, loyal to its citizens, and devoted to its Creator, then our best days are yet to come. Because we will make America great again!”
