Donald Trump: ‘We Don’t Worship Government, We Worship God’

Speaking at the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Road to Majority Policy Conference, former President Donald Trump cited freedom of speech and religion as the most important issues, saying “we don’t worship government, we worship God,” and denouncing the “merciless assault from the radical left.”

During the conference, which was held in Nashville, Tennessee, at the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center and was aired live on Newsmax, Trump spoke about important issues facing the American people as the country heads into the midterm election season.

“I’m thrilled to be back with so many proud, hard-working patriots who love our country, cherish our history, and lived by those timeless words of our national motto: In God, we trust,” the former president said.

“Let me express my tremendous gratitude to each and every one of you,” Trump continued. “The Faith and Freedom Coalition is the front line of defense for Christians and people of faith in America today. What a job they do.”

He went on to discuss the upcoming elections, asserting that the GOP is looking at major victories in November.

“This is going to be the biggest turnout in midterm history, we think without question, and it’s going to have conservative Christians all over the place,” Trump said, vowing to lead a charge to “take back our country in November.”

The former president then discussed the conservative platform and the important issues that the American people believe in which are under attack by the left.

“We believe in law and order,” Trump said. “And we know that the Constitution means what it says, as written. We reject censorship, blacklisting, and cancel culture because we know that the lifeblood of a free society is free speech.”

“We don’t have free speech very much in this country anymore,” he added. “If you don’t have free speech, you don’t have a country. We know that religious freedom is the foundation of all freedom. Because we know that our rights and liberties come straight from the hand of our creator.”

He then went on to call out the “Unselects” on the House January 6 Committee, calling them “left-winger haters.”

“Every one of them is a radical left hater,” Trump said. “Hates all of you. Hates me even more than you, but I’m just trying to help you out. What the hell did I do?”

Trump brought up the so-called Republicans on the committee, Reps. Liz Cheney (R-WY) and Adam Kinzinger (R-IL), who both joined the committee to attack the former president and to give the group the appearance of bipartisanship.

“It’s a one-way street,” he said. “It’s a rigged deal. It’s a disgrace, and it’s never happened in the history of our country where we didn’t have any, we have no representation. They say, ‘Oh, they have Republicans.’ Who are they?”

“Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, the crier,” Trump added. “He cries every time he speaks. This guy’s got a mental disorder. He cries every time this guy gets up to speak. He starts crying. There’s something wrong with that guy. These are our representatives.”

Trump also teased a 2024 presidential run — once again stopping short of declaring an official campaign, while also vowing that treating Democrats and Republicans equally will be “one of the most urgent tasks facing the next Republican president.”

“I wonder who that will be,” he said to a standing ovation. “Yeah, thank you very much. That’s very nice. I appreciate it.”

“Am I allowed to cry like Adam Kinzinger? I still haven’t figured out if his crying is real. It’s hard to believe it’s real,” Trump added.

“Would anybody like me to run for president?” he asked before standing in response to more raucous applause.

Bringing up another key issue of the past few years, Trump also noted that “the Republican Party must become the party of parents’ rights.”

“There is clearly an effort in these schools to push gender confusion on impressionable young children without parents’ knowledge or consent,” he continued. “That’s what’s happening.”

“In a fair world, the schools that are forcing sexual propaganda on kindergarteners would be investigated, their administrators would be terminated, their teachers would be removed from the classroom, and the school would be placed under receivership until it was once again a safe place for our children to learn,” Trump added.

The former president condemned the “woke gender ideology” as “nothing less than child abuse.”

“No teacher should ever be allowed to teach transgender to our children without the parents’ consent, and I don’t think too many people are going to be giving that consent – not too many,” Trump stated. “And when Republicans retake Congress, they also need to crack down hard on Big Pharma for giving puberty blockers and other dangerous drugs to mutilate our children and our youth.”

“Likewise, every federal bureaucrat who is complicit in this travesty needs to be told, ‘You’re fired.’ Did you ever see that? You’re fired! Get out!” he added.
