Reader it saddens me how Trump puts our national security over and above helping the least of these. Scripture tells us that helping these people is helping Jesus himself. I'm glad there are leaders in the Christian community who are willing to speak out on behalf of those in need.
Christian Leaders Respond to Trump’s Budget: We Can’t Turn Our Backs on Those in Need
The Trump administration recently announced a plan to induce “deep cuts to foreign aid”adding, “it is time to prioritize the security and well-being of Americans, and to ask the rest of the world to step up and pay its fair share.” The U.S. Agency for International Development helps some of the world’s most vulnerable communities.
"America is blessed with fertile land, abundant natural resources, a strong economy, and faithful citizens who value religious freedom. But beyond our borders, many countries experience unparalleled suffering and loss of life due to extreme poverty, disease, natural disasters, and conflict."
Timothy Cardinal Dolan, National Association of Evangelicals President Leith Anderson, World Vision’s Rich Stearns, singer Amy Grant and Rev. Johnnie Moore are among the more than 100 Christian leaders to sign a new letter opposing President Trump’s massive proposed cuts to foreign aid.
