[Press Release] My Faith Votes CEO Jason Yates Commends President Trump for Becoming First Sitting US President to Pray at Western Wall
DALLAS — My Faith Votes CEO Jason Yates commends President Trump becoming first sitting U.S. president to pray at Western Wall:
“When American Christians consider our foreign policy, there is no other place or people in the world of more significance than Israel and the Jewish people.
“Because of this, we are greatly encouraged to hear President Trump has not only become the first sitting U.S. president to go to Israel on his first overseas trip but also the first sitting president ever to pray at the Western Wall.
“As Christians, we believe that friendship with Israel is more than a wise, strategic decision in our fight against terror —it’s also choosing God’s blessing for our nation as we support His chosen people.
“My Faith Votes commends the president for taking such unprecedented steps and for charting a new path in America’s relationship with the State of Israel. As Christians, we are reminded by the president’s actions to stand firm in hope and prayer for peace to come to Israel.”
My Faith Votes—whose founding honorary national chairman was Dr. Ben Carson—is a non-partisan movement focused on motivating Christians in America to participate in local and national elections and be active members of society. By partnering with local churches, pastors and national faith leaders, My Faith Votes mobilizes and resources Christians to lead the conversation on the place of faith in culture and politics.
