The Republican candidate assured evangelicals, who played a crucial role in his rise to power in 2016, that he would defend their faith.

Former US President Donald Trump on Saturday urged evangelicals to vote en masse in November’s presidential election to help him return to the White House and vowed to “fiercely” protect religious freedom if elected.

“Evangelicals and Christians do not vote as much as they should”said the Republican candidate in a Washington hotel before hundreds of attendees at the Faith and Freedom coalition conference. “They go to church every Sunday but they don’t vote. And we have to make sure they vote this time, because they only have to do it this one time,” he urged. “In four years you don’t have to vote, okay? In four years don’t vote, I don’t care,” he concluded, causing laughter among the audience.

The magnate assured evangelicals, who played a crucial role in his rise to power in 2016, that he would defend their faith. Trump highlighted that he had already given them a historic victory by nominating three conservative judges to the Supreme Court, who in 2022 revoked the right to abortion throughout the United States.

“We will protect Christians in our schools, in our army, our administration, our workplaces, in our hospitals,” he pledged.

Furthermore, he promised that if he returns to the presidency, will establish a federal group to investigate “discrimination” and “persecution” of Christians in the country.

Trump accused Democrats of trying to keep followers of that religion “away from politics,” prompting the crowd to chant “Vote, vote, vote.”

Next Thursday, the Republican leader will face his Democratic rival, President Joe Biden, in a long-awaited televised debate.
