"As more of that has come to light, evangelical Christians who support Trump as more than "just another president" but as something of a messianic figure have been pressed to explain why". He noted a John Adams quote carved into the room's fireplace: "I pray heaven to bestow the best of blessings on this house". "I think we're doing well, I think we're popular, but there's a real question as to whether people are going to vote if I'm not on the ballot".

The CNN segment was focused on discussing Trump's recent remarks to a group of Christian leaders that if Republicans lose this November there could be widespread violence.

"This Nov. 6 election is very much a referendum on not only me, it's a referendum on your religion, it's a referendum on free speech and the First Amendment".

During Monday's meeting, Trump also reportedly repeated a previously debunked claim that he'd gotten rid of a law that prohibits churches and charitable organizations from endorsing political candidates.

During the meeting Trump falsely claimed, "Now one of the things I'm most proud of is getting rid of the Johnson Amendment".

Maybe it's why you are very plateaued.

President Donald Trump on Monday welcomed the president of Kenya to the White House, where the two leaders talked trade, security - and Trump's accomplishments. "And I think that having the U.S. engage with Africa in terms of investment and development, economic growth would actually be a much more robust way to counter terrorism", Mbaku said.

"I know when people like me", Trump said. A lot of them like, and some don't and that's OK.

He warned those gathered that, "you're one election away from losing everything you've got".

In fact, the President has fallen short of that promise.

Kenyatta has been trying to bolster his image following a crisis in which Kenya's Supreme Court overturned the August presidential election, citing irregularities, and the opposition boycotted the fresh vote. Gregory Magarian, a constitutional law professor at Washington University Law School, says Trump's 2017 executive order "does nearly nothing". But that did not happen as Trump directed the Internal Revenue Service not to aggressively pursue cases in which a church endorses a political candidate or makes a political donation.

Monday night, though, Trump and Kenyatta released a joint statement resolving to elevate the U.S-Kenya relationship to a "Strategic Partnership, affirming it as a cornerstone of peace, stability and good governance in Africa and the Indian Ocean region".
