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.”
These fact sheets provide a snapshot of hunger and poverty in the United States and in each state plus Washington, D.C.
Conflict is a main driver of the recent increase in hunger around the world and of forced migration. Hunger also contributes to conflict.
“As you therefore have received Christ Jesus the Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him and established in faith.” These words from Colossians 2:6 remind us of the faith that is active in love for our neighbors.
