Support for President Trump in the Faith Community Continues Surging; Over 200 Iowa Faith Leaders Have Now Endorsed

Des Moines, IA – Today, President Donald J. Trump announced another significant milestone in organizing over 200 Iowa faith leaders to endorse and support his campaign. The Trump campaign in Iowa has more than doubled the number of faith leaders in its grassroots coalition in just 37 days since announcing the support of its first 100 Iowa faith leaders.

The rapidly expanding support in Iowa’s faith community underscores President Trump’s strong support from community leaders and voters who prioritize faith and family values when selecting their leaders. The Trump campaign continues to build strong momentum as it enters the final stretch before the Iowa Caucus.

President Trump’s record of delivering policy victories for voters of faith is unmatched, highlighted by his successful nomination of three Supreme Court Justices who overturned Roe v. Wade. President Trump also reinstated and expanded the Mexico City Policy to prevent American taxpayer money from being spent on funding abortion globally and sent a powerful message that Life matters when he became the first and only President ever to attend the March for Life.

“At the end of the day, results are what matter,” said Pastor Barney Bornhoft of Boone, Iowa. “President delivered on his commitments to people of faith in America, and his track record demonstrates clearly that faith and family values, religious freedom, and moral clarity will again be cornerstones of his leadership. President Trump is the leader that Christians and all people of faith need now, more than ever.”

Arizona Federal Court Dismisses 14th Amendment Ballot Challenge In Total Victory For President Trump


“Today, federal court in Arizona dismissed another bad faith, 14th Amendment challenge to President Trump’s ballot status. President Trump remains undefeated in beating back these scurrilous lawsuits brought forth by a thirsty, Biden-allied troll in a desperate publicity campaign. Each and every one of these “Castro Cases” are not only a feeble attempt to interfere with the 2024 presidential election, but they are a huge waste oftime for our nation’s judiciary. We urge the swift disposal of all remaining 14th Amendment cases putting this matter to rest faster than the recently deceased term ‘Bidenomics.’”

–Steven Cheung, Trump Campaign Spokesman

To Date, No 14th Amendment Ballot Case Has Won. Precedent Is Set And The Case Law Is Settled.

The Eastern District Of Washington Dismissed A 14th Amendment Case In Late November. “On Wednesday, an Eastern Washington District Court judge dismissed a lawsuit filed by a Spokane Valley resident that attempted to disqualify former President Donald Trump from running for president in 2024 because of his participation in the Jan. 6 attack on the U.S. Capitol.” (The Inlander, 11/30/23)

Federal Court In Rhode Island Dismissed A Frivolous 14th Amendment Challenge From A Gadfly Presidential Candidate. “A federal court in Rhode Island on Monday dismissed the latest case attempting to keep former President Donald Trump off the state’s ballot over the attack on the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021. It’s the fourth court this month to deliver a setback to anti-Trump activists who are trying to keep the GOP presidential front-runner off state ballots in 2024.” (Washington Times, 11/27/23)

Colorado State Court Ruled In Trump’s Favor, Placing Him On The 2024 Ballot. “Former President Donald Trump’s name will remain on the Colorado 2024 presidential primary ballot, a judge ruled Friday. ‘The court orders the Secretary of State to place Donald J. Trump on the presidential primary ballot when it certifies the ballot on January 5, 2024,’ U.S. District Court Judge Sarah B. Wallace wrote in her ruling.” (Fox News, 11/17/23)

State Court In Michigan Dismissed Three Concurrent 14th Amendment Ballot Challenges Brought By A Democrat Front Group. “A state judge in Michigan partly rejected an effort to disqualify former President Donald J. Trump from running for president in the state, ruling that Mr. Trump will remain on the ballot in the Republican primary and that the state’s top elections official does not have the authority alone to exclude him from the ballot.” (New York Times, 11/14/23)

Earlier 14th Amendment Cases In Minnesota And New Hampshire Have Also Been Dismissed. “Disqualification efforts have also been rejected in other states. The Minnesota Supreme Court dismissed a similar petition last week. And a case in New Hampshire was also dismissed last month.” (New York Times, 11/14/23)
