Trump: We’ve Stopped Government Effort to Undermine Religious Freedom



We have stopped the Johnson Amendment from interfering with your First Amendment rights,” Trump said, referring to a 1954 tax code provision preventing non-profits including churches from endorsing political candidates without losing their tax-exempt status.

(Trump signed an executive order in May 2017 instructing the Treasury Department not to enforce the provision against religious organizations. Initiatives are underway in Congress to repeal it.)
