When you look at what President Trump did in Europe and recommitting ourselves to our NATO allies, committing ourselves to our partners in Europe, our partners across the world, committing ourselves to the values of the West, delivering a speech in Poland which many people said are the best speeches since Ronald Reagan.

Sarah Sanders: Johnson Amendment Akin to Silencing Martin Luther King

Look, I think it’s very hard to argue that a pastor or another faith leader shouldn’t be able to speak out about morality in the public square.  I think that it would be almost like Martin Luther King, Jr. shouldn’t have been allowed to speak out against George Wallace.  I don’t think anybody in this room would argue that that would be an appropriate thing to do, and that is what the Johnson Amendment currently does.  And we see this as a hurdle to freedom of speech, and certainly something that should be protected.
