Faith is at the heart of American life and freedom – stressed US President Donald Trump this year’s National Imagegalin Thursday in Washington.
In his inaugural speech, the President stressed that America is a nation of believing people and strengthens the power of prayer.
“Today we thank God for being Americans,” said Trump.
The US president spoke in his speech on the problems of drug use in the United States with the size of an epidemic and the religious persecution of the Islamic State terrorist organization. “Today, nearly 100 percent of the coalition forces against the Islamic State have been liberated from the areas in Iraq and Syria that these killers have been under control of,” Donald Trump said. He added: “In the fight against the Islamic State,” there is still much to do, but we will never rest until we finish our work completely. ”
Before the start of the prayer ceremony, the chairman said in a Twitter post that many religious and political leaders and “many friends” will be present at the event. The National Imagregacy is a 65-year-old tradition in the United States, drawn by Abraham Vereide, a Norwegian-born American Methodist Reverend. Every Thursday in the US is held in the US capital, exceptionally this is the second Thursday of the month. The event is hosted by the American Congress every time in the Ballroom of the Hilton Hotel in Washington.
Since the presidency of Dwight Eisenhower, all US Presidents have been participating and speaking in the presence of thousands of guests from over a hundred countries.
