While the rest of the United States and the mainstream media were focused on the Comey hearings on Thursday, June 8th Donald Trump gave the opening address at the 2017 Road to the Majority Conference. Hosted by the Faith and Freedom Coalition, the event was both a religious conference and the lead in for the national fundraising campaign to get more Conservatives elected in 2018. The President addressed a crowd of approximately 1500 religious leaders and people of faith that were in attendance during the three-day event. Trump began by thanking the Coalition's leader Ralph Reed for 'not letting him down'.

Other Conservatives who gave speeches during the three-day event included Tea Party Patriot Senator Ted Cruz and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell. A complete list of speakers was listed on the 2017 Road to the Majority website.

Trump touted achievements on behalf of Christians

Trump reminded attendees that he had kept his promises to Evangelical Christians by putting Conservative Neil Gorsuch on the bench of the U.S. Supreme Court, withdrawing from the Paris Accord, and taking the first steps towards permanently protecting the unborn. Trump also pointed out that "obstructionist" Senate Democrats who tried to block the Gorsuch nomination, failed to do so. Time noted that Trump never mentioned the three Democrats who supported Gorsuch.

Senate Leader Mitch McConnell reiterated that message on Friday, adding that Trump will fill every vacancy on the federal bench with Conservatives and impact U.S. Law “far beyond his tenure” according to Right Wing Watch.

The President received a standing ovation after speaking about reinstating the Mexico City policy put into place by Ronald Reagan to protect the unborn and the executive order to protect religious liberty on the National Day of Prayer.

By overturning the Johnson Amendment churches, religious groups, and leaders can now get directly involved in raising money to nominate candidates and help elect those who reflect Christian values. The president added that the executive order also directs the IRS to stop targeting churches and religious organizations for political speech which he had vowed to do during the 2016 Road to Majority Conference.

Trump added that Conservatives only hold a three-seat majority in the U.S. Senate and a 'pretty small majority' in the U.S. Congress. Ted Cruz followed Donald Trump's speech by listing the remaining priorities Trump and Conservatives will be working on this yea. Those priorities are repealing Obamacare, tax reform and finalizing regulatory reform.
