Trump Stresses Anti-Abortion Focus in Appeal to Evangelicals

The Associated Press’s Jill Colvin and Zeke Miller report on Thursday’s National Prayer Breakfast, in which President Donald Trump underscored the importance of anti-abortion policies in an appeal to conservative, Christian voters. Trump said, “As part of our commitment to building a just and loving society, we must build a culture that cherishes the dignity and sanctity of innocent human life.” Colvin and Miller write, “That pledge, two days after Trump in his State of the Union address denounced late-term abortion, is part of his effort to re-energize evangelical voters, who have been among his most loyal supporters and will be vital to his re-election prospects.”
