President Trump addressed attendees at the Faith & Freedom Coalition's event as former FBI Director James Comey's hearing finished up on Capitol Hill.
Though the president didn't specifically reference Comey's testimony, he said he and his supporters "are under siege" but "will come out bigger and better and stronger than ever."
The president expressed the need to protect religious freedom and American values.
Trump's speech here at Faith and Freedom Coalition conference feels a world removed from Capitol Hill. Not a single mention of Comey.— Eliana Johnson (@elianayjohnson) June 8, 2017
Although, Trump did not mention the Comey hearing, he did comment on the recent terrorist attacks.
"The vicious slaughters in Manchester and the streets of London underscore the depths of depravity we face," Trump said.
President Trump vehemently opposed terrorism. "Our way of life will always be protected. We will crush this enemy that is waging war on all of civilization," Trump said.
Trump called for unity toward the end of his speech. "Whether we are black or brown or white we all bleed the same red blood," he said.
