Trump has received the endorsement of CatholicVote, a prominent Catholic advocacy group. In the upcoming presidential primary in New Hampshire, CatholicVote is urging approximately 137,000 Catholic voters to back Trump. Brian Burch, the president of CatholicVote, stated in an interview with Fox News that the organization had maintained a neutral stance during the primary, as they believed there were multiple strong candidates in the race.
“But the number of candidates has dramatically winnowed over the last week, and we are now in a two-person race. And we think at this point it is important that Catholics start to rally around President Trump. Not only would he be a far better choice than Nikki Haley, but he is the choice that Americans need in November. And Catholics… will play a critical role in this election, and the fate of our Catholic way of life is really at stake in this election,” Burch said.
Burch refuted the notion that supporting Trump was a risky move, asserting that the American citizens closely observed his actions for four years. Additionally, Burch commended the Obama administration for its commendable selection of individuals for significant positions in federal courts.
Burch went on to praise Trump’s “courage” and the “kinds of people” he “surrounded himself with.”
“And I think we came to realize that, of all the virtues necessary [to be president], courage is essential. Many candidates come and go and check boxes on certain policies and issues, especially during the campaign. But what separated President Trump, I think, from a lot of leaders was his courage to do the right thing, no matter what the consequences might be.”
