While many of President Trump’s controversial decisions and tweets dominate the media, TV news programmes and the national press have so far been fairly silent on Trump’s pro-life successes. However, it is being claimed that Trump’s policies have saved more babies in the womb any other president.
US pro-life leader Cheryl Sullenger says: “Even Reagan did nothing substantial to move the ball down the field. Trump’s been great. The only reason he hasn’t done better is that he’s met with resistance in Congress… There’s been no other president who has done more to protect babies from the death industry.”
Justin Welby described his 12-day-trip to Israel as a “pastoral pilgrimage”
The Archbishop of Canterbury told Israeli and Palestinian leaders in May that he believes there’s a window of opportunity for peace. Justin Welby said: “It does seem, listening to many, that… Perhaps there is a moment of opportunity coming that may not repeat itself for a while.”

“The most stunning political upset in American history.” That’s how ABC News commentator George Stephanopoulos described Donald Trump’s victory in last night’s election. Mr. Trump shocked the world by winning the White House as Republicans maintained control of the Senate and the House of Representatives.
Early this morning I watched history being made as the president-elect accepted his decisive victory with a speech that was gracious and positive. In coming days, we will explore the meaning of his election for our culture. For now, let’s remember that Christians are called to pray for our leaders (1 Timothy 2:1–2) and to support them (Romans 13:1). Such intercession for our incoming leadership begins today.
