Donald Trump announced that the Administration of the United States of America will dedicate $25 million to protect religious sites and houses of worship all around the world.
Monday morning, Trump also made a call to business leaders and all the nations of the world to participate and fight against religious persecution.
“Global Call to Protect Religious Freedom”
It was the name of the event, and it was attended by Trump, Vice President Mike Pence and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, high ranking U.S. officials, survivors of religious persecution, faith leaders, business leaders, and religious freedom advocates.
When Vice President Mike Pence was introducing The President, he declared that Monday would be a “very special day.”
In the same way, Donald Trump said: “As president, protecting religious freedom is one of my highest priorities and always has been.”
After this event, Trump became the first American president to call a meeting at the United Nations to focus on religious freedom.
“We are also pleased to be joined today by many of the partners of the business community as we announce a very critical initiative,” Trump explained. “The United States is forming a coalition of U.S. businesses for the protection of religious freedom. This is the first time this has been done.”
“This initiative will encourage the private sector to protect people of faith in the workplace and the private sector has brilliant leadership,” he added.
“That is why some of the people in this room are among the most successful men and women on Earth. They know how things get done and they know how to take care of things. They are with us now for the first time, to this extent, for the first time ever. We are really honored to have you in the room. Great business leaders and great people of strength.”
