Trump speaking at National Prayer Breakfast

Nancy Pelosi Applauding Donald Trump Becomes Hit Meme On Twitter

"We will always protect our country's long and proud tradition of faith-based adoption", Trump continued, drawing applause from the crowd.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi says she wasn't being facetious in the widely-shared picture of herself as applauded President Donald Trump during his State of the Union address. "As president, I will always cherish, honor and protect the believers who uplift our communities and sustain our nation to ensure that people in faith always contribute to our society". The Becket Fund for Religious Liberty, which is acting as counsel for the adoption agencies, notes that "St. Vincent's beliefs have never prevented a child from being placed in a loving home" and "gay couples working with other agencies have been able to adopt children in St. Vincent's care in the past".

"All children born and unborn are made in the holy image of God", Mr. Trump told the prayer breakfast.

Trump then introduced Elan Carr, a former prosecutor in the Los Angeles district attorney's office, as the State Department's new special envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism.

In all likelihood, Trump was verbally conflating the 19th century abolition movement against slavery, with the Civil Rights movement of the 1950s and 60s that rolled back Jim Crow laws and gave African-Americans sweeping protections in public accommodation and voting.

Gary Haugen, of the International Justice Mission, spoke before Trump and talked at length about what he described as a "fracturing of the American family".

He said the Church has "suspended several clerics" and the Vatican has been "working (on the issue) for a long time". Pope Francis arrives to speak to reporters aboard a plane on the way to Abu Dhabi on 3 February 2019.

"I believe it is the holy faithfulness of God that should keep us from growing tired in doing good, but we do grow tired, don't we?"

He warns: "I do sense that we are in a national moment of perilously mounting discouragement".

She called Trump's speech "theatrics" and said she viewed the president's declaration that investigations into him could harm the economy as an "all-out threat".

Lankford and Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., served as co-chairmen of this year's prayer breakfast.

Every commander in chief since President Dwight Eisenhower has attended the breakfast, which began in 1953.
