Trump Rallies Evangelicals for 2024 Election

Donald Trump urged evangelicals to actively participate in the 2024 election, emphasizing the importance of their votes during a speech to evangelical Christians at the Faith & Freedom Coalition's annual Road to Majority conference in Washington, D.C. Trump endorsed displaying the Ten Commandments in schools and other public places, praising a new Louisiana law that mandates the Ten Commandments be displayed in every public school classroom.

On his social media network, Trump highlighted the importance of the Ten Commandments for the nation. He also sought to galvanize religious right supporters, who have strongly backed him since his 2016 presidential campaign. Despite his conviction for falsifying business records related to a hush money payment to Stormy Daniels, Trump's support among evangelicals remains robust.

Trump's reluctance to support a nationwide ban on abortion contrasts with the views of many evangelical supporters. However, they continue to support him due to his role in appointing Supreme Court justices who overturned national abortion rights in 2022. Trump emphasized his role in the reversal of Roe v. Wade but stated that the issue should be decided by the states. This stance resonates with voters like Jerri D***inson, a 78-year-old retired social worker and Faith & Freedom member from New Jersey, who prefers a national abortion ban but understands it should be left to the states.

According to a poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, about two-thirds of Americans believe abortion should generally be legal. However, according to AP VoteCast, about 8 in 10 white evangelical Christian voters supported Trump in 2020, with nearly 4 in 10 Trump voters identifying as white evangelical Christians, who made up about 20% of the overall electorate in 2020.

The Faith & Freedom Coalition plans to support Trump and other Republicans by using volunteers and paid workers to knock on millions of doors in battleground states. Trump also rallied voters in Philadelphia, focusing on violent crime and promising to grant police officers immunity from prosecution. Philadelphia had 410 homicides in 2023, a 20% drop compared to 2022, according to city controller statistics.

Trump was joined by GOP Senate candidate of Pennsylvania, Dave McCormick, who discussed the economy and immigration issues. The conference featured prominent speakers including South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem, former HUD Secretary Dr. Ben Carson, former Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard, South Carolina Sen. Lindsey Graham, and Tennessee Sen. Bill Hagerty. Noem, Carson, and Gabbard have been mentioned as potential running mates for Trump.

Trump addressed more than a thousand attendees, joking that nobody would be watching the debate on Thursday night, eliciting laughs from the crowd. He called for Christians to vote in the upcoming November elections, discussing key issues for faith voters, including late-term abortion and moving the U.S. embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. Trump criticized the federal government's actions during the COVID-19 pandemic, stating it targeted Americans of faith and lamented the decline of religion in the country, linking it to rising crime and other societal issues.

Trump accused the "radical left" of rigging the 2020 election and vowed it would not happen again, citing ongoing prosecutions against him as efforts to take away his freedom. He vowed to begin the "largest deportation operation in American history" on his first day in office.

The Road to Majority Conference, hosted annually by the Faith & Freedom Coalition, is the largest public policy gathering of conservative Christian activists in the U.S. The conference focuses on policy issues that matter most to voters of faith ahead of the 2024 election. Republican Virginia Gov. Glenn Youngkin also spoke, calling for Trump to return to the White House and for strengthened Republican majorities in Congress.

Following the conference, Trump will meet Biden on an Atlanta stage this Thursday in a debate hosted by CNN, marking their first meeting since the final debate ahead of the 2020 presidential election.

Conservative Bias:

Once again, the radical left is doing everything in their power to undermine the values that built this great nation. Donald Trump, the true champion of American values, is rallying the evangelical base to fight back against the liberal agenda that seeks to erase our history and moral foundation. The leftist media won't tell you this, but Trump’s support among evangelicals remains unshaken despite the witch hunts and bogus charges they throw at him. He’s the man who appointed the justices that overturned Roe v. Wade, a monumental victory for life. Yet, the liberals continue their smear campaigns, trying to paint him as out of touch. They don't want you to know about the crime-ridden cities like Philadelphia, where Trump is promising real solutions like immunity for police officers who risk their lives every day. And let’s not forget, the left rigged the 2020 election, and they’re trying to do it again. But Trump is ready to fight back with the largest deportation operation in history and a return to law and order. The radical left’s policies are destroying this country, but Trump and his conservative allies are ready to restore faith, freedom, and American greatness.

Liberal Bias:

Donald Trump is once again pandering to his evangelical base, using fear and misinformation to rally support for his 2024 presidential bid. Despite being convicted for falsifying business records, Trump’s followers remain blindly loyal, ignoring the fact that his policies and rhetoric are tearing the country apart. His reluctance to support a nationwide abortion ban shows his hypocrisy, as he tries to appease both his extremist base and the broader electorate. Trump’s focus on crime in Philadelphia is another scare tactic, ignoring the root causes of violence and instead promising draconian measures like granting police immunity from prosecution. His claims of a rigged 2020 election are baseless, yet he continues to st*** division and distrust in the democratic process. Trump’s promises of mass deportations and his attacks on the federal government’s COVID-19 response are just more examples of his dangerous and divisive agenda. The Faith & Freedom Coalition and other conservative groups are complicit in this, using their influence to push a far-right agenda that is out of touch with the majority of Americans who believe in legal abortion and sensible gun control. The upcoming debate with Biden will be another platform for Trump to spread his lies and hatred, but the American people are waking up to his destructive tactics.
