Trump to Attend March for Life, Will Become the First President to Address the Rally in Person

President Donald Trump will deliver remarks in person at the annual March for Life rally in Washington, D.C., on Friday.

Trump’s speech will make him the first president to address the pro-life rally since it started 47 years ago.

Trump shared his intention to attend the rally in a tweet on Wednesday, which was also the 47th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision, which legalized abortion in the United States.

In a statement, March for Life President Jeanne Mancini praised the news.

“We are deeply honored to welcome President Trump to the 47th annual March for Life. He will be the first president in history to attend, and we are so excited for him to experience in person how passionate our marchers are about life and protecting the unborn.”

Mancini continued to call Trump and members of his administration “consistent champions for life” and said their support of the rally has been “unwavering.”

“We are grateful for all these pro-life accomplishments and look forward to gaining more victories for life in the future,” she added.

While Mancini praised the move, Ilyse Hogue, the president of the pro-choice advocacy organization NARAL suggested that Trump was trying to “divert attention from his criminal presidency.”

In 2017, Vice President Mike Pence became the first vice president and highest government official to address the rally. A year later, Trump became the first president to address the event by video.

    I am continually amazed at how much this President loves America and ALL Americans. But, as usual, the Fascist Party of Hate Americans has to send its jackbooted troopers out to criticize and defame one of the two greatest Presidents; both of whom were Republicans and worked FOR the peoples' interest and future. No civility or respect left, thanks to the mongrels on the Left.

  2. Once again, fake news gonna fake. The animosity the media feels from Americans they’ve earned.
