The president also returned to a familiar campaign trail refrain, promising that as the holiday season approaches "We're saying "Merry Christmas" again".

"Religious liberty is enshrined in the very first amendment of the Bill of Rights".

'In America, we don't worship government, we worship God, ' Trump said. Video clips are already on social media and many Republicans lauded what they view as President Trump's strong stance on policy.

The annual Values Voter Summit is sponsored by Christian hate groups like the Family Research Council and the American Family Association, groups that engage in the demonization of LGBT people by falsely portraying them as sick, vile, incestuous, violent, perverted, and a danger to the nation.

Conservatives and other Trump supporters loved the President's speech. "As we gather for this tremendous event, our hearts remain sad and heavy for the victims of the horrific mass murder last week in Las Vegas", Trump said. Looking to Perkins on stage, Trump later said, "He's saying - they're saying no".

"I got the evangelicals". FRC Action, the legislative affiliate of Perkins' group, founded the annual event in 2006.

"One of the promises I made you was that I would come back", he said during his remarks.
