USA – Trump promises to support victims of religious persecution


President Donald Trump promised survivors of religious persecution who visited the Oval Office yesterday that he will forever support them in their attempts to secure religious freedom.

“It’s really an honor to be with you and I will stand side by side with you forever,” the president told a multi-faith delegation of survivors and victims of religious persecution from over 16 different countries. “You’ve been through a lot — more than most people could ever endure, and I want to congratulate you.”

Members of the delegation are in Washington, D.C., attending the administration’s second Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom hosted by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Ambassador Sam Brownback, head of the State Department’s Office of International Religious Freedom.
