Trump, looking to grab evangelical support ahead of the November presidential election, addressed the US biggest annual anti-abortion rally on Friday as the Senate sat in judgment to decide on his impeachment case.

“Unborn children have never had a stronger defender in the White House,” Trump told tens of thousands of anti-abortion campaigners at the 47th “March for Life” on the National Mall.

President Trump is the first US president to address the annual anti-abortion rally in person. He assailed Democrats for supporting abortion rights and claimed that “religious liberty” was under attack.

“When it comes to abortion. Democrats have embraced the most radical and extreme positions. We have taken decisive action to protect religious liberty,” the 73-year-old Republican president said.

After Trump’s brief address, the crowd instantly began to chant “four more years,” a reference to the November vote, when Christian evangelical support will be crucial to Trump’s re-election.

“I vote pro-life,” said signs held by members of the crowd.

“They are coming after me because I am fighting for you and we are fighting for those who have no voice. And we will win because we know how to win,” he told the crowd.

Beverly Atkins, 55, drove 13 hours from Alabama to attend the rally, “Life begins at conception. We don’t think you should destroy that,” Atkins told AFP.

Speaking on Trump’s impeachment trial, she said Democrats “have no evidence” that Trump did anything wrong.
