Trump tells lawyers sue Schiff in speech to Christian conservatives; explains reason for exiting Syria

By Michael Hernandez

WASHINGTON, D.C.—President Donald J. Trump speaking to the Values Voter Summit said he told his lawyers “sue him (Adam Schiff).  He has immunity…I said, sue him anyway,  even if we lose, the American pubic will understand.”

The potential lawsuit would be for the House Intelligence Committee Chair fabricated narrative of the July 5 phone conversation between President Trump and Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky.

President Trump was speaking Saturday at the annual Values Voter Summit organized by the Family Research Council Action at the Omni Shoreham Hotel.  Some of the other 40 plus speakers during the three-day event (Oct. 11-13) included:   Alex Azar, Secretary of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; Sebastian Gorka, former National Security Strategist; as well as Sam Brownback, ambassador-at-large for International Religious Freedom.

Other speakers included lawmaker Senator Josh Hawley (R-Mo); Congressman Mark Meadows (R-NC); Congressman Louie Gohmert (R-Tx); State Sen. Jessica De La Cruz (R-RI); and State Reps Katrina Jackson (D-La); and Pat McElfrat (R-N.C).

President Trump said he had no desire to be engaged in “never ending wars” and that he would only send U.S. soldiers to fight if the objective was to win.  Trump said the hardest part of his job was to go to Dover Air Force Base and see the coffins of American soldiers unloaded before “parents, wives and husbands.”

“We’ve been in these wars for 19 years and we didn’t fight to win.   These wars (in the Middle East) never end.   We’re going to bring our great soldiers home.  It is time.”

President Trump called the Iraq Gulf War the “single worst mistake this country has made” because there were no weapons of mass destruction and it cost so many lives and trillions of dollars of money.

“We killed ISIS and we did our job,” because we let our soldiers fight said Trump unlike previous presidents who he claimed had developed so many rules of engagement that the military needed to follow.

President Trump said that the Gulf War did not reduce persecution of Christians and other religious minorities.

“I am the first president to host a meeting at the United Nations to end religious persecution, can you imagine?  I am the first president that did that.  With one clear voice, we condemn the persecution of Christians.  I have made it clear, if you do not protect religious minorities, (you will face) strong economic sanctions.

“I am against anti-Semitism.  The Democrat Party has invited anti-Semitism into their ranks.  Look at Omar (Congresswoman Ilhan Omar of Minnesota).

“I was the first one to recognize the capital of Israel in Jerusalem (despite worldwide opposition).   I opened an American embassy in Jerusalem.”
