White House To Sign Executive Order On Religious Liberty This Thursday

President Donald Trump will be signing an executive order regarding religious liberty on Thursday, which also happens to be the National Day of Prayer.

According to Politico, Trump has invited several prominent conservative leaders to the White House for the signing.

“The signing would represent a major triumph for Vice President Mike Pence—whose push for religious-freedom legislation backfired mightily when he served as governor of Indiana—and his allies in the conservative movement,” the Politico article said.

The original draft of the order, which was leaked to The Nation in February, seemed to establish a broad range of exemptions for those looking to claim them based on their religion.

The signing of the executive order comes after Liberty University President Jerry Falwell Jr. told Judge Jeanine Pirro that Evangelicals have found their “dream president” in Donald Trump.

“I think reuniting Israel with America after eight years of treating them badly, appointing Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, appointing people of faith to his Cabinet in almost every area … I think he is attacking ISIS so that Christians being murdered in the Middle East will stop. All those things that evangelicals love,” Falwell said.
