President Trump Speaks at 66th Annual National Prayer Breakfast in Washington DC

Sophia Talks About Experience at the National Prayer Breakfast

He concluded: 'As long as we open our eyes to God's grace and open our hearts to God's love, then America will forever be the land of the free and the home of the courageous and a light to all nations'.

More than 3,500 people, including members of Congress, gathered for the prayer breakfast at the Washington Hilton.

As Sophia prepared for surgery January 24 to continue treatment for the disease that caused the strokes, she sought prayers from people. Conservative evangelical leaders were criticized for their steadfast support of Trump through the scandal, despite community leaders' having a history of policing Democratic politicians' sex lives.

Trump did not bring up his previous support for ending the Johnson Amendment, which forbids churches and other tax exempt institutions from endorsing candidates for office.

Trump's remarks were most notable for what he did not say.

"The share of Americans who identify as atheists has roughly doubled in the past several years".

"As long as we are true to America's founders ... we can all be heroes to everybody and they can be heroes to us", he said.

In his 2010 remarks, President Obama called on "Americans of every faith, and no faith", to unite "around a common goal, a higher objective", specifically mentioning Hindus and Sikhs, as well as Jews, Catholics and Protestants.

Kelly traveled to the speech with Trump, a tacit acknowledgment that even as the fallout from Porter's departure ensnares the chief of staff, the President remains committed to Kelly.

Trump referenced his hit NBC reality series in an early morning tweet in which he noted he planned to head over shortly to the event.

For example, a May 2017 executive order ensured that religious Americans and their organizations, such as the Little Sisters of the Poor, would not be forced by an Obama era mandate to violate their faith by providing contraceptives. "And let us seek to build a more just and peaceful world, where every child can grow up without violence, worship without fear, and reach their God-given potential".

"As long as we open our eyes to God's grace and open our hearts to God's love, then America will forever be the land of the free, the home of the courageous, and a light to all nations", said Trump.

He added, in remarks prepared for the event, "All we have to do is open our eyes and look around us, and we can see God's hand. And it excludes this huge segment of the American people".
