Trump expands minority, Christian outreach at Miami megachurch event

President Donald Trump continued his campaign outreach to Christians and minorities Friday during an event at a Miami megachurch in which he made specifically appeals to Hispanics.

The president unveiled an “Evangelicals for Trump” at King Jesus International Ministry, but the event had all the trappings of a campaign rally.

The packed venue featured attendees adorned with Trump 2020 campaign garb, but it opened with religious music and prayer, The Wall Street Journal reported.

Evangelical leaders in attendance included Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, and Paula White, who works for the White House as an adviser to the Faith and Opportunity Initiative. King Jesus Ministry’s pastor, Guillermo Maldonado, was also in attendance.

“In 2016, evangelical Christians helped us…they went out and they worked so hard and they produced numbers like they never produced before,” said the president. “We’re going to blow those numbers away in 2020.”

Campaign spokeswoman Kayleigh McEnany noted that the outreach coalition aims to enroll thousands of members and will seek to not only “maintain the extraordinary support of the evangelical community but also to expand it.”

“We definitely see we can make inroads with black and Hispanic evangelicals,” she added, arguing that the president’s record on religious issues would be appealing to those voters.

For his part, Trump acknowledged “so many extraordinary Hispanic and African-American faith leaders who are lifting our nation to incredible new heights.”

Since he took office, the president has remained closely aligned with religious leaders of various faiths. He meets regularly with pastors and is setting up an initiative giving religious groups more political influence.

“I may not be perfect but I get things done,” the president joked at one point, adding that he will soon take “action to safeguard students and teachers’ First Amendment rights to pray in our schools.”

  1. The greatest betrayal of Christ Jesus since the KISS of Judas Iscariot.
    Trump’s “SUPER SUPERIORITY” Executive Order for Jews. The order will effectively interpret Judaism as a nationality, not just a religion, to trigger a federal law penalizing colleges and universities, and soon expand to cover Worshiping CHRIST since Judaism has hated and attacked Christ for 2,000 years.
    For the first time since Emperor Constantine recognized Christianity in the 300th Year of Our Lord, Christians are relegated to SECOND CLASS CITIZENSHIP. 1700 years and JUDAS ISCARIOT again betrays CHRIST.
    The first step in legalizing State sponsored Christian Persecution.
    Trump has set the legal precedent for the subjugation of Christianity.
    Trump just set the legal foundation for the TRIBULATION so many fret about.
    Crosses on Churches ALREADY “offend” Jews . … so do Nativities, Carols, Trees …. Where do you think the “War on CHRISTmas” originates? Jews refuse to acknowledge Jesus or the NEW Testament and Trump just handed them the weapon to attack.

    Talk about “War on Christmas” … Like King Herod attempting to murder the Baby Jesus, King Trump has launched an attack on CHRISTianity by Officially Legalizing the elevation of Judaism ABOVE Christ, just 13 DAYS before CHRISTmas.
    The USA has a “National Menorah” but NOT a “National Nativity
    There is a “christmas tree” but that is nothing but a DECORATION .
    Passing an executive order that prohibits First Amendment freedom of speech and religion on college campuses, elevates Zionistic Judaism to de facto state religion status, makes every Christian and non-Jew in America second-class citizens and prohibits any criticism of all things Israel on college campuses—which by implication prohibits the reading of the New Testament
    It gets biblical because he is establishing the Legal Precedent which will become “anchored in Law” and lasts forever
