On Friday, January 3, 2020, President Trump spoke to the first gathering of the Evangelicals For Trump, and one quotable moment that may find itself repeated for all time was when he referenced the 2016 election victory as being a divinely guided and enabled moment when he said, “I really do believe we have God on our side, I believe that … or there would have been no way we could have won, right?”
The full address is below. The above comment happens shortly after the 27.20 timestamp marker.
Some more of his quotable quotes were,
“Our faith is needed now more than ever. While certain fads come and go, it is an eternal truth that faith and family lead to the stability, happiness, and prosperity of nations.”
“Our opponents want to shut out God from the public square so they can impose an extreme anti-religious and socialist agenda.”
The president previewed a future law enforcement action from Attorney General Bill Barr to protect teachers and students who want to pray in schools.
“We will not allow faithful Americans to be bullied by the hard left. We’re not going to allow it.”
“I may not be perfect, but I get things done.”
“America was not built by religion-hating socialists. America was built by church-going, God-worshipping, freedom-loving patriots.”
One person in particular that Trump welcomed to the stage was Angel Belcher of the Fifth United Holiness Church in Florida. Angela is a black woman who delivered a rousingly passionate speech as she defended President Trump.
She spoke of a trend that the increasingly politically active speaker and founder of this site, David J Harris Jr, speaks of when she noted that she received a lot of criticism for standing with Trump and defending him. David has related similar experiences, with some of the harshest verbal abuse coming from black Americans.
A strong point of hers parallels what David encourages other black Americans to do. She said that she had learned to think for herself rather than doing what she was told by voting for Democrats.
“I will do what I want to do; I will vote for who I want to vote for. I’m going to make a stand. I will never give up. And as for the president, I want him to stand strong. I want him to keep moving.”
