The Evangelicals for Trump campaign will be launched at Miami’s largest Hispanic church, according to Kayleigh McEnany, national press secretary for the Trump Victory Committee.
The campaign for the re-election of President Donald Trump for next year will consolidate its voters with the slogan “Evangelicals for Trump” at El Rey Jesús Church in Miami, Florida.
The event will take place on Jan. 3 at one of the nation’s largest churches, which draws about 20,000 worshippers each week, according to the Miami New Times.
“El Rey Jesús was a natural fit to launch our Evangelicals for Trump coalition,” McEnany said, according to the Miami Herald.
McEnany also noted the enthusiastic participation of Pastor Guillermo Maldonado, the church’s founder.
“Apostle Maldonado is a staunch supporter of the president, reflecting the great and overwhelming support President Trump has among the evangelical community at large,” McEnany said.
About “80 percent of those who identify themselves as white evangelical Christians say they support the president,” the Miami New Times reported.
Some 200 evangelical leaders demonstrated in support of President Trump by rejecting a Christianity Today magazine article supporting the impeachment of the Democrats against him.
The president dismissed the publication as “far-left.”
President Trump is a strong advocate of religious freedom. On May 3, 2018, he signed an executive order to give religious groups a voice in Washington and to protect religious organizations from excessive government influence.
“America is a nation of believers, and together we are strengthened by the power of prayer,” Trump said on that occasion, quoted by the White House.
Also, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held the Ministerial Conference to Promote Religious Freedom in Washington July 16-18.
Besides promoting important initiatives, they deplored the negative effect of the Chinese Communist Party.
Pompeo referred to China as “home to one of the worst human rights crises of our time. “It is really the stain of the century,” he added.
