Yesterday President Trump earned the distinction of being the Religious Freedom President.

In front of the United Nations, he spoke in soaring rhetoric that was profound, bold, and forthright.  He proclaimed the foundational American principle that our religious freedom is a right from God Himself.

It was obvious that the president’s remarks were not simply perfunctory, rather deeply felt and deeply important to him personally.  We were grateful for him once again spotlighting the scourge of anti-Semitism, something that he has chosen to speak about more than any other president. 

His humanity shone forth as he spoke about the many prisoners of conscience and those oppressed by terrorists as well as Christians persecuted around the world simply for believing in their heart and, he was generous to those who have been victims of religious persecution and to those who are working to rescue people of faith from the clutches of terrorism.

Rabbi Aryeh Spero is president of Caucus for America, author of "Push Back: Reclaiming our American Judeo-Christian Spirit," and spokesman for the National Conference on Jewish Affairs.
