They've criticized Trump for siding with religiously affiliated agencies and businesses that won't work with LGBTQ couples, non-Christians or anyone else who doesn't share their beliefs.

"Even in this divided era there is good that we all agree should be done to address criminal justice reform, the opioid crisis, a broken foster care system - and we should just do it", Haugen said. "As a result, a lot of younger Americans associate Christianity and public professions of faith with some of the most politically conservative and theologically conservative views".

U.S. President Donald Trump vowed Thursday to always protect people of faith, and praised their role in American life.

Once the shutdown ended, without the funding Trump had wanted for his wall, the two rescheduled his speech.

Trump was the 12th president to speak at the annual breakfast, which has been attended by every president since Dwight D. Eisenhower.

With his opening words at this year's National Prayer Breakfast, President Trump made clear he saw the largely conservative crowd as a friendly audience, one he was eager to please.

The president was among several speakers at the event, which included a reading by the Most Rev. Michael Curry, who made headlines around the world a year ago with his stirring sermon about the power of love at the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.

Curry, who achieved fame for his love-focused sermon at Prince Harry's royal wedding in 2018, read from 1 Corinthians 13 during the breakfast.
