TRANSCRIPT

President Donald Trump is trying to magnify his appeal to America's Catholics.

In an audio conference with Church leaders Sunday, Trump reportedly stressed his pro-life policies and his support for religious liberty and school choice.

On the same day, the president announced he had watched Catholic Mass via livestream from St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City.

Earlier this year, Trump became the first U.S. president to speak in person at the National March for Life in Washington, D.C.

His administration has worked to protect employers with a religious or moral objection from having to provide contraception to employees in spite of their sincerely-held beliefs.

In the 2016 election, many who voted for Trump said ensuring pro-life appointments to the Supreme Court was an important factor in their decision. 

Soon after taking office, President Trump reinstated the Mexico City Policy, which blocks U.S. taxpayer money from going to overseas abortions.

Trump's challenger in November will most likely be former vice president Joe Biden, a phony Catholic who supports abortion, transgenderism and so-called gay marriage.

Owing to all this, many believe the 2020 presidential election will be the most important in history for American Catholics.
