Trump Becomes First President to Host UN Religious Freedom Meeting | Christian News

Donald Trump has become the first US President to ever host a meeting at the United Nations on religious freedom.

“As President, protecting religious freedom is one of my highest priorities,” Trump told the nations of the world on Monday.

In his keynote address to the UN, President Trump pointed to alarming statistics showing 80% of the world’s population lives in countries where religious liberty is threatened, restricted, or even banned.

“When I heard that number I said, ‘Please go back and check it because it can’t possibly be correct.’ And sadly it was 80%,” Trump said.

And followers of Christ are among the most heavily persecuted around the world. In fact, it’s estimated that 11 Christians die each day for their faith.

“I mean just think of this, 11 Christians a day for following the teaching of Christ,” Trump said.

“When I heard that number I said, ‘Please go back and check it because it can’t possibly be correct.’ And sadly it was 80%,” Trump said.

Gaffney, CEO of Save the Persecuted Christians, says it’s now up to the rest of the world to follow suit.

“The most important message, he very much did deliver on the fact by his presence at this event. He put the nations of the world on notice,” he said.

The President urged nations to repeal laws that restrict religious freedom and increase prosecution towards crimes against people of faith.

“To stop the crimes against people of faith, release prisoners of conscience, repeal laws restricting freedom of religion and belief, protect the vulnerable, the defenseless, and the oppressed, America stands with believers in every country who ask only for the freedom to live according to the faith that is within their own hearts,” he said.
