( – On Saturday, former President Donald Trump used his speech at the Washington, D.C., Faith & Freedom Coalition to urge evangelicals to vote in the upcoming presidential election. 

Trump pointed out that Christians and evangelicals did not go out to vote in numbers as high as they should. He added that while these were people who attended church every Sunday, they were not people who went out to vote, which is something that they need to change. He added that “just this time” they needed to go out and vote and that after that they would no longer need to worry as they would make sure everything was straightened fast. 

Trump asked the crowd whether they knew how much power they hold if they voted. The crowd Trump is addressing is to a great extent in favor of a national abortion ban. Still, Trump has in the past expressed opposition to a nationwide abortion ban, which is something that evangelical movement people tend to push for. Still, the group is considered one of the big demographics that is set to assist Trump in defeating President Biden in the upcoming election. 

Trump during his first administration was responsible for the nomination of the three Supreme Court conservative justices that played an instrumental role in overturning the landmark case that granted abortion rights. However, he has maintained that a national abortion ban would only be harmful to the GOP politically. Around two-thirds of Americans believe that abortion should generally remain legal, according to a poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research that was published last year.
