President of the Family Research Council and pastor Tony Perkins believes President Trump is “the man for this time” because of his fight for religious liberty.

“People of faith, Christians in particular—evangelicals—are enthusiastically supporting the president,” Perkins said in an interview on “Fox & Friends.” “As he’s attacked, people lock arms around him because they know he’s fighting for the things they care about.”

Perkins got a sneak preview of Trump’s speech for the National Prayer Breakfast on Thursday. This will be the first time the President has spoken since being acquitted in the Senate impeachment trial.

“What he’s doing and what makes the left so mad is that he’s dismantling the infrastructure that they’ve used to advance an anti-faith, big-government agenda and they’re not going to be able to jump back into the driver’s seat and take off again,” he said. “It’s going to take them decades to rebuild …”

As Trump’s poll numbers amongst evangelicals rise, Perkins believes their support will help the president ride into a 2020 reelection victory.

“This president has not only ceased the war on people of faith, but he’s building a bulwark where people of faith can openly practice their faith,” he said.
