Vice President Mike Pence recently spoke about the role of faith in the Trump administration, and stated that “President Trump is a believer and so am I.”
In an interview with CBN News’s David Brody, Pence said that he and President Trump are deeply grateful for the support they have received from evangelical Christians.
"I think President Trump has a heart of gratitude for evangelical Christians in this country," Pence stated. "I have to tell you, the sweetest words the president and I ever hear, and we hear them a lot, are when people grab us by the hand and say, 'We're praying for you.'"
Pence also affirmed that both he and the President are committed to the Christian faith and prioritize prayer in their administration:
"I've been with this president in the Oval Office, with religious leaders, when people have asked to pause for a moment of prayer and the president readily embraces that….President Trump is a believer and so am I. And we understand the role of faith in the life of this nation, and the American people I think can be encouraged to know that in President Donald Trump, they have a leader who embraces and respects and appreciates the role of faith and the importance of religion in the lives of our families in communities in our nation and he always will."
Pence also discussed the greatest successes and challenges of the first year in office.
