Trump calls faith 'central' to American life

At last year's breakfast, Trump vowed to end the Johnson Amendment, a provision in the tax code that prevents nonprofit organizations such as churches from endorsing or opposing political candidates.

Scalise reiterated the president's comments on the integral relationship between faith and liberty.

For realsies. He has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The National Prayer Breakfast has been an annual event since 1953, when Dwight Eisenhower was president. Compared to last year, where the president boasted about his performance on Celebrity Apprentice and attacked Arnold Swaagenfer, there was nothing that created a firestorm this year.

Trump's words about religion and following God's teachings came a day after his White House struggled to react to a report that his staff secretary, Rob Porter, physically and otherwise abused his two ex-wives.

Trump said, "Let us resolve to find the best within ourselves".

Include women in the sequel.

"No matter what, no earthly force can take those rights away", he said at the 66th National Prayer Breakfast at the Washington Hilton hotel.

Sophia Marie Campa-Peters, a resident of Brownfield, Texas, suffers from a rare disease that causes her blood vessels in her brain to constrict and close, Fox News reported. "Before his escape, when Seong-ho was being tortured by North Korean officials, there was one thing that kept him from losing hope", Trump said.

Before her surgery, the Brownfield native asked for 10,000 people to pray for her.

Trump's optimism for our nation is here seen as an expression of his belief in God's providence.

On our land we see the splendor of God's creation. These can hardly be considered proof that America is a founded in faith.

During the introduction, Rep. Crist spoke about a wrist band that he got from a doctor that had the words of the Golden Rule, in which Jesus said "do unto others as you would have done unto you". I'll tell you how: "God." said Sophia.

Press secretary Sarah Sanders shared Sophia's story during a daily press briefing on January 23, detailing how the child suffers from "a rare disease that causes the blood vessels in her brain to narrow and close" and has had a number of strokes as a result.

The committee that handles the prayer breakfast is made up of Protestants and Catholics, and members make a point of inviting people from different faiths to the event.
