[CBN] Donald Trump has become the first US President to ever host a meeting at the United Nations on religious freedom.
“As President, protecting religious freedom is one of my highest priorities,” Trump told the nations of the world on Monday.
In his keynote address to the UN, President Trump pointed to alarming statistics showing 80% of the world’s population lives in countries where religious liberty is threatened, restricted, or even banned.
“When I heard that number I said, ‘Please go back and check it because it can’t possibly be correct.’ And sadly it was 80%,” Trump said.
And followers of Christ are among the most heavily persecuted around the world. In fact, it’s estimated that 11 Christians die each day for their faith.
“I mean just think of this, 11 Christians a day for following the teaching of Christ,” Trump said.
