On Saturday, President Donald Trump gave his first commencement speech as president. Trump chose to give his speech at Liberty University, in a nod to evangelicals who helped win him the presidency.
During the speech, Trump mostly struck to his script and promised Christians that he would always stand up for their rights, and railed against those who sit around and criticize everything his administration has accomplished, The Daily Caller reported.
“As long as I am your president, no one is ever going to stop you from practicing your faith or from preaching what is in your heart,” Trump said.
Atheists across America undoubtedly were livid at this speech. Trump touched on Christianity several times, and made it clear that the United States is a nation under God.
“When the founders wrote the Declaration of Independence, they invoked our creator four times, because in America we don’t worship government, we worship God. That is why our elected officials put their hands on the Bible and say, ‘So help me God,’ as they take the oath of office,” Trump said.
Trump’s speech was anchored in religious conviction. Trump highlighted several times that the students from Liberty would become the torchbearers for the next generation and continue fighting for the rights of Christians all around the world.

“As long as you remember what you have learned here at Liberty, as long as you have pride in your beliefs, courage in your convictions and faith in your God, then you will not fail,” Trump remarked. “And as long as America remains true to its values, loyal to its citizens, and devoted to its creator, then our best days are yet to come, I can promise you that.”
Trump’s speech was one of optimism and hope, but of course the liberal media didn’t really pay much attention to it; they were too busy inventing fake scandals in their hopes of toppling Trump.
While Trump may not be the most openly religious president we have ever had, it is clear that religion is important to him.
Perhaps even more important, it is clear that ensuring that all Americans are free to practice their religious beliefs is one of Trump’s top priorities.
