PHILADELPHIA (ChurchMilitant.com) - Speaking to Republican congressmen in Philadelphia Thursday, President Donald Trump reiterated his support for the March for Life, saying "by the way on Friday — a lot of people gonna' be showing up."

Nothing fair about the media. Nothing.

After being met with praise by the crowd for reinstating the Mexico City policy, which stops American taxpayer dollars from funding foreign abortions, President Trump gave a shout-out to the yearly pro-life march and took a shot at the media.

And by the way on Friday, a lot of people are going to be showing up to Washington, right Mike? A lot of people. You know the press never gives them the credit that they deserve. There will be 300, 400, 500, 600,000 people; you won't even read about it. When other people show up you read big time about it, right? So it's not fair, but — nothing fair about the media. Nothing.

His remarks were met with laughter and loud applause.

According to a report by the Washington Times, "The major television networks gave the Women's March on Washington 129 times more coverage than last year's March for Life."

Thursday morning President Trump claimed with Republicans controlling both the White House and Congress, that "now is the dawn of a new era."
