President Trump says US a Nation of believers, what a contrast from Obama point of view
President Trump spoke today at the National Prayer breakfast and said that
“America is a nation of believers”. This is a direct contrast to Barack Hussein who liked to downplay America’s Christian heritage. Obama said ‘we are no longer a Christian nation; we are now a Nation of Christians, Muslims, Buddhists.’
Speaking at the National Prayer Breakfast for the second time, President Trump stressed the importance of putting God at the center of the country, describing America as a “nation of believers.”
The president spoke of spoke importance of faith.
“America is a nation of believers and together we are strengthened by the power of prayer,” Trump said.
The president made reference to America’s God-centered founding, such as the Declaration of Independence referencing God four times. He also noted how our currency boldly declares “In God We Trust” and how our Pledge of Allegiance states, “We are one nation, under God.”
Also referencing the phrase “praise be to God” etched atop the Washington monument, Trump declared, “and those same words are etched in the hearts of people.”
“Our rights are not given to us by men, our rights are given to us from our creator,” he said. “No matter what, no earthly force can take those rights away.”

The president highlighted how “the Lord’s grace” shines in America through acts of service and good deeds. So long as Americans hold firmly to their convictions, Trump said, “our nation can achieve anything at all.”
Then the president shifted to the importance of religious liberty, praising the many Christians, Jews, and “countless Muslims” abroad who have bravely suffered under the persecution of ISIS. He also gave another nod to North Korean defector Ji Seong-ho from his State of the Union address.
President Trump’s comments at the National Prayer breakfast are in direct contrast to Barack Hussein Obama who said America is no longer a Christian nation. Below are some of the acts of hostility that Obama enacted toward Christianity.
“As long as we open our hearts to God’s grace, the land of the free, the home of the brave and the light to all nations,” Trump said, “America will flourish, as long as our liberty, and in particular our religious liberty, is allowed to flourish.”
