President Trump met with 27 survivors of religious persecution from 17 different countries that were in Washington to attend the U.S. State Department’s 2nd annual Ministerial to Advance Religious Freedom from July 16-18, 2019.

“With us today are men and women of many different religious traditions from many different countries. But what you have in common is each of you has suffered tremendously for your faith. You’ve endured harassment, threats, attacks, trials, imprisonment, and torture. I got to know many of you and helped you get some — get some of you out of the difficult situation that you were in. I’m very proud of you in the way you’ve reacted to a different life. It is a tremendous thing.” President Trump shared in his welcome remarks.
