Former President Donald Trump delivered a speech to the National Religious Broadcasters calling on Christian voters to help “reclaim” the country from what he termed political persecution under President Biden.

He vowed to protect religious freedom and the unborn if reelected, citing cases like pro-life activists facing prison for peaceful protest.

“They want to silence you, demoralize you, and keep you out of politics. … But Christians, they can’t afford to sit on the sidelines in this fight,” Trump said.

Trump criticized Biden’s foreign policy as enriching Iran and pledged to be a “peacemaker.”

“So today, I come before you as a friend, an ally, and a fellow believer to ask for your help and your support and your prayers for this country. We need your prayers … and I make you a simple promise,” he said. “In my first term, I fought for Christians harder than any president has done before … and I will fight even harder for Christians with four more years.”

“Under Crooked Joe, pro-lifers are now being hunted by the Biden regime as enemies of the state. The same Biden DOJ that dropped charges against Antifa … has rounded up six pro-life activists right here in Tennessee, arresting them for a peaceful protest outside a clinic where they prayed, sang hymns, and were removed with great force,” Trump said.

“Last month, those protesters were convicted on outrageous charges and are now facing up to 11 years in prison. … Let’s call these brave Americans what they are: persecuted Christians.”

“Americans of faith are not a threat to our country; Americans of faith are the soul of our country,” he said.

He outlined plans to cut funding for schools teaching concepts like critical race theory, support homeschooling, and restore “timeless truths” about gender.

Trump portrayed the administration as hostile to Christianity and promised to aggressively defend religious liberty, faith in schools and the military if returned to office.

“I really think it’s the biggest thing missing from our country. … We have to bring back our religion. We have to bring back the Christianity of this country,” he said.

“No one will be touching the Cross of Christ under the Trump administration,” Trump said.

“We will protect Christians in our schools, in our military, in our government, and in all of our airwaves. … We will protect God in our public square,” he said. “Millions of Americans value listening to Christian broadcasters … while they are on the road. … We’re not going to abandon you.”

“As the Bible says, ‘Blessed are the peacemakers,’” he said. “I will be your Peacemaker, [and] I will prevent World War III.”

“For generations, America’s Religious Broadcasters have helped the people of this country live up to the words of our glorious motto, ‘In God We Trust,’” he said, adding, “Your efforts have inspired millions and millions to live their values and put faith at the center of their lives. … And in turn, these legions of listeners, citizens, soldiers, ministers, and everyday American believers not only helped defeat Fascism and Communism; they helped to build America into the greatest nation in the history of the world.”

“With your prayers, your voice, and your vote, we will reclaim our government from these tyrants. We will remove the communists, Marxists, and fascists. We will defeat Crooked Joe Biden. We will restore faith and family to the center of American life—and we will restore power to the people.”

“Ladies and gentlemen, with your help and God’s grace, the Great Revival of America begins on November 5, 2024! Thank you once again to the National Religious Broadcasters. … God bless you, and God bless America!” Trump concluded.
