For Religious Conservatives, Success and Access at the Trump White House

posted on February 13, 2017

The New York Times’ Jeremy W. Peters reports how the Religious Right has found favor in President Trump’s White House. The new administration has made moves to limit federal funding for abortion and allow persecuted Christians to enter the country. Peters writes, “Mr. Trump has given many conservative Christian leaders his personal cellphone number. He has solicited their advice for filling key positions. He has invited them to the White House. And he has staffed his cabinet with many people of deep Christian faith, like Ben Carson, a Seventh-day Adventist, and Betsy DeVos, who was raised in the Calvinist tradition.”
