President Trump to Speak at Heritage Foundation, 10/17/17

It is my honor to announce that President Donald Trump will address Heritage members at our annual President’s Club Meeting on Tuesday, October 17 at 7:30 pm Eastern.

I invite you to listen to President Trump’s message and participate in the conversation by tuning in live here — You don’t want to miss it!

When you use this link you’ll also get a chance to comment on the speech and share your thoughts on how we can make America great again.

Heritage has been instrumental in providing the Trump administration with sound policies and experts who now serve in key government positions.

The Trump Administration has drawn from Heritage’s plans to balance the budget, cut wasteful government programs and agencies, strengthen our national security, fix our broken immigration system, protect religious liberty and the dignity of life, and provide tax relief to Americans.

Our most vulnerable Americans are at risk, and along with them, the very liberty and principles upon which our nation was founded.  These Americans are our children, our future generations that will vote, enact legislation and lead our nation.  What are these future leaders learning?  What are their values, morals, attitudes and standards?  Most urgently, what are they being taught about America, its purpose and history? A strategy is afoot to deceive our children and defraud them of their God-given rights and liberty.  Their American Christian heritage is the most valuable inheritance they have.  How will our children learn the truth about America?  If parents do not counsel their children, the world will.  If the church does not counsel people, the world will.  Martin Luther King Jr. said, “The church must be reminded that it is…the conscience…guide and critic of the state…”

Koinos Christian Fellowship is offering a solution to this dilemma, and THIS IS YOUR LAST CHANCE TO REGISTER FOR THIS LIFE-CHANGING EVENT – The Truth of America’s Founding – Your Heritage & Mine,” to be held Saturday, October 21, from 10 AM – 4 PM.  Contact Ricki or Koinos Christian Fellowship to enroll

Our future is bright, if we pass on the knowledge that will protect our children’s heritage.
