GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump has said that if elected, he'll send Syrian refugees back out of America. Trump warned that some of the refugees seeking asylum in the United States might be operatives of the Islamic State terror group, which he said would be "one of the great tactical ploys of all time."
"If I win, they're going back," Trump told supporters at a speech in Keene, New Hampshire, on Wednesday, BBC News reported.
President Obama has said the U.S. will take in an additional 10,000 refugees from Syria in 2016, seeking to help Europe with the ongoing migrant crisis. more >>
Presidential candidates seeking the Evangelical vote will be speaking to a sold-out crowd of 7,000 potential voters at a Texas megachurch in mid-October.
Sen.Ted Cruz, former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Dr. Ben Carson, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former Sen. Rick Santorum and Carly Fiorina have already confirmed their attendance and will be expounding on their views to attract support from this coveted interest group during the Oct. 18 forum, sponsored by Prestonwood Baptist Church and the Faith & Freedom Coalition at the congregation's Plano campus.
"As Christians, we're interested in all the issues: marriage and family, sanctity of life, wealth and poverty, racial reconciliation, immigration, human trafficking, justice, and so much more," said Jack Graham, pastor of Prestonwood Baptist Church, to The Christian Post about the church's first-ever candidates' forum. more >>
Thousands of Christian conservatives gathered in Washington, D.C. over the past three days, as presidential candidates sought their grassroots support for the 2016 election. Late Saturday, Senator Ted Cruz won the straw poll of attendees at this tenth annual Values Voter Summit with three other candidates also in double digits.
While the straw poll indicates a measure of Evangelical and social conservative support, these results are far from the only newsworthy aspect of the summit. On Friday, as the summit was carried live on several national TV networks, social media trends indicated the event as one of the nation's most-discussed topics.
Many candidates — including Senator Marco Rubio, Senator Ted Cruz, Governor Mike Huckabee, former Senator Rick Santorum and Governor Bobby Jindal — delivered their most comprehensive remarks to date on the sanctity of human life, forcefully calling for the federal government to cut off all taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood. more >>
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani has fired back against Republican members of Congress who've criticized the nuclear deal between the Islamic Republic and several Western states, calling them "laughable" and suggesting that they don't even know where Iran is located.
"Sometimes when I would have time — some of it was broadcast live and I would watch it — some of it was quite laughable. It was very strange, the things that they spoke of," Rouhani told CNN's Christiane Amanpour in an interview on Sunday, talking about ongoing Republican criticism of the deal.
"Some of them wouldn't even know where Tehran was in relation to Iran. Some of them didn't know where Iran was geographically, not distinguishing that one is the capital of the other," Rouhani added. more >>
Former Senator Rick Santorum is well known for his devout Catholic faith. In the 2012 Republican Presidential Primary, Santorum scored big wins with many Evangelical voters and dominated a large part of the Deep South.
Santorum ultimately finished second in the delegate count to Mitt Romney and won 11 states outright, plus he was the belated victor in the Iowa caucus, surpassing the former Massachusetts governor and eventual nominee by 34 votes. He was outspent by Romney by a margin of 45-1.
Santorum, who represented Pennsylvania in the Senate from 1995 to 2007, is well known for his strong defense of the unborn and helped pass the 2003 ban on partial-birth abortions. more >>
