President Trump on Friday, Jan. 3, got a big reaction from the crowd when he promised to bring religion back into American public schools at a re-election rally on the outskirts of Miami at the King Jesus International Ministry.

“We are defending religion itself, it’s under siege,” the president said. “A society without religion cannot prosper.”

Some 7,000 attendees were at the rally. Most of them wearing Trump’s signature red MAGA hats. Some raised their hands in a sign of praise and swayed while music played loudly over the speakers before the president entered the room.

Pastors gathered around Trump on the stage for an opening prayer, while much of the audience remained standing with their hands aloft.

“These angry radicals want to impose absolute conformity by censoring speech, tearing down crosses and symbols of faith, and banning religious believers from public life.”

“Very soon I’ll be taking action to safeguard students and teachers’ First Amendment rights to pray in our schools,” President Trump said. “They want to take that right along with many other ones.”
