It is so refreshing that President Donald Trump is open about his Christian faith especially in the face of Christians being openly and violently persecuted around the world.
President Trump just released a powerful Easter message in which he referenced not only the Jewish season of Passover, but also the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
“As families gather in houses of worship across the nation, we are grateful for the tremendous blessings on this land, our home,” Trump said, according to The Hill. “We have a beautiful country, an abundant countryside, and an amazing people with a truly bright and wonderful future.”
Trump went on to talk about Passover and the Jewish history of persecution.
“Down through the centuries, the Jewish people have lived through one persecution after another,” he said. “And yet, they persevered, and thrived and uplifted the world beyond measure. And now, the state of Israel stands as a monument to their faith and endurance.”
He went on to say that he’s looking forward to Easter.
“It is a holy day of reverence and worship, a sacred time that fills the spirit of our nation with the faith of our people,” Trump said.
Moving away from religion, the president condemned terrorism, calling it “one of the gravest threats to religious freedom” and condemning recent attacks by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria on Christian worshipers. He then directly addressed “those struggling Americans who have felt, for too long, the bitter taste of hardship.”
“This White House is fighting for you. We are fighting for every American who has been left behind,” he said. “We are fighting for the right of all citizens to enjoy safety and peace, and to work and live with the dignity that all children of God are entitled to know.”
