President Trump Fighting to Put Prayer Back in Schools: 'We Will Not Allow Faithful Americans to Be Bullied'

The specifics were not clear ahead of the announcement, but the president did promise earlier this month at the Evangelicals for Trump rally at the King Jesus International Ministry in Florida that he would take action to safeguard students' and teachers' First Amendment rights to pray in school.

"We will not allow faithful Americans to be bullied by the hard Left," Trump said.

The prayer announcement comes on Religious Freedom Day, an annual event held on January 16 to mark America's long history of protecting religious liberty going all the way back to the 1786 passage of Thomas Jefferson's Virginia Statute of Religious Freedom.

"A society without religion cannot prosper. A nation without faith cannot endure, because justice, goodness and peace cannot prevail without the glory of Almighty God," Trump said this month at his evangelical rally. "For America to thrive in the 21st Century we must renew faith and family as the center of American life."

"These angry radicals want to impose absolute conformity by censuring speech, tearing down crosses and symbols of faith and banning religious Believers from public life," he said. "But we will not back down, we are standing tall for the values that we hold dear."

"I will be taking action to safeguard students' and teachers' First Amendment rights to pray in our schools," Trump said. "They want to take that right along with many other rights."

"My administration will never stop fighting for Americans of faith," he said. "I really do believe we have God on our side." Subscribe for free to Breaking Christian News here
