Trump also had urged Congress to prohibit what he described as "the late-term abortion of children who can feel pain in the mother's womb".

With his opening words at this year's National Prayer Breakfast, President Trump made clear he saw the largely conservative crowd as a friendly audience, one he was eager to please.

Trump said at Thursday's event, "As president I will always cherish, honor and protect the believers who uplift our communities and sustain our nation".

"As part of our commitment to building a just and loving society, we must cherish the dignity and sanctity of innocent human life", Trump told attendees.

The president noted that on Saturday, Brunson would walk his daughter down the aisle for her wedding.

He devoted much of his speech instead to other issues important to conservative Christians, from religious liberty to abortion.
