Washington, D.C.– Today, some politically conservative Christian leaders will meet with presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump to learn more about the candidate and his position on certain issues.
The following statement can be attributed to Rev. David Beckmann, president of Bread for the World:
“The group that is meeting with Donald Trump today does not represent the entire Christian community – or even all evangelicals.
"The leaders of a wide array of Christian church bodies have asked presidential candidates to explain what they would do about hunger and poverty if elected. These are issues that are important in all faith traditions. Nearly all the candidates have provided statements (www.circleofprotection.us). But despite repeated requests, the Trump campaign has yet to respond.
“Bread for the World calls on Donald Trump to offer a statement on what he would do to provide help and opportunity to hungry and poor people in the United States and around the world.
“Currently, 48 million Americans, including nearly 16 million children, struggle with hunger. A recent voter survey commissioned by Bread for the World found that 1 in 3 voters say they will vote only for candidates who promise to make ending hunger one of their top priorities. Bread for the World is working to elect leaders who will make this happen.
“Bread for the World hopes that Mr. Trump considers ending hunger and poverty to be an important issue, just as millions of Christians across this country do.”
Hunger and food insecurity add at least $160 billion a year to U.S. healthcare costs.
Mass incarceration has far-reaching effects in the United States. It poses a significant barrier to ending U.S. hunger and poverty by 2030—a goal the United States adopted in 2015. But the connection is not always obvious.
The United States has long been a global leader in responding to humanitarian emergencies. Food assistance that includes nutritious food for pregnant women and young children is both a life-and-death matter for individuals and an economic imperative for countries.
