Americans worship God, not government, President Donald Trump said Friday in an address to the National Rifle Association (NRA).
In his speech, Trump declared that “faith and family” constitute the foundation of life in America:
“We know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the center of American life. Above all else, we know this: in America, we don't worship government; we worship God.”
President Trump also listed several principles Americans support. Among them, is the belief that parents should teach their children to love their country, honor its history, and respect its flag.
“We believe in the rule of law and we will always protect and defend the constitution of the United States. There are some people that are running right now, I don't think that have that number one on their list.
“We believe that children should be taught to love our country, honor our history and always respect our great American flag. And we believe in the right to self-defense and the right to protect your family, your community and your loved ones. We believe in the wisdom of our founders. We believe in freedom and liberty and the right to keep and bear arms.
“We know that faith and family, not government and bureaucracy, are the center of American life. And, above all else, we know this: in America, we don't worship government; we worship God.
“Every day of my administration, we are taking power out of Washington, D.C. and returning it to the American people, where it belongs. And you see it now better than ever. With all of the resignations of bad apples. They are bad apples. They tried for a coup; it didn’t work out so well. And I did not need a gun for that one, did I?”
