President Proclaims Power of Prayer at National Prayer Breakfast

President Trump, at the annual National Prayer Breakfast Thursday, declared the USA a "nation of believers" as he told listeners that God's grace could be seen in every facet of American society. And they look at those who support the president as deplorable (thank you, Hillary Clinton), idiots, ignorant religious fanatics, et al. It took the White House until 9:30 p.m.to issue a statement from Chief of Staff John Kelly saying he was "shocked by the new allegations". Sophia replied, 'If you're only going to talk about what I can't do, then I don't want to hear it.

US President Donald Trump on Thursday once again denounced the "repressive regimes" of Cuba, Venezuela, Iran and North Korea and said that his administration is on the side of all those people around the world suffering "persecution" due to their religious faith.

Last year, Trump promised to end the Johnson Amendment, a provision in the tax code that prevents nonprofits like churches from endorsing or opposing political candidates. The president singled out active members of the military, teachers, police, and parents working multiple jobs to provide for their families as noteworthy examples of such people.

During his presidency, Eisenhower made it clear faith is paramount to America's success telling reporters, "Our government has no sense unless it is founded in a deeply felt religious faith".

Russian officials attended Trump's National Prayer Breakfast in much larger numbers than previously - about three times the number attending previous year, a spokesman for the group that organizes the breakfast told reporters.
