Trump says US will prioritize Christian refugees: 'We are going to help them'

GETTYEEW Magazine News // Christian Broadcasting Network

Share President Donald Trump says persecuted Christians will be given priority when it comes to applying for refugee status in the United States.

“We are going to help them,” he told Christian Broadcasting Network.

“They’ve been horribly treated. Do you know if you were a Christian in Syria it was impossible, at least very tough to get into the United States?" he said in an exclusive interview with The Brody File Friday morning in the Blue Room at The White House.

"If you were a Muslim you could come in, but if you were a Christian, it was almost impossible and the reason that was so unfair, everybody was persecuted in all fairness, but they were chopping off the heads of everybody but more so the Christians. And I thought it was very, very unfair,” Trump explained.

According to a report by the non-partisan Pew Research Center, 99% of the nearly 12,600 Syrians granted refugee status last year were Muslims. Less than 1% were Christian. Syria's population is 87% Muslim and 10% Christian, according to the CIA World Fact Book as of June 2014.

The Refugee Processing Center reports that in 2016, there were 15,302 Muslims who arrived in the U.S. from Syria and there were 93 people, also from Syria, who identified as either Catholic, Christian, Protestant or Jehovah's Witness.

During a speech last year at Liberty University, the billionaire businessman promised, "We are going to protect Christianity."

“I’m a Protestant. I’m very proud of it—Presbyterian to be exact. But I’m very proud of it. Very, very proud of it," he said, revealing his faith. 

Further expressing his concern about the Christian faith being targeted by radicals, the 70-year-old told the university's crowd, “Bad things are happening.”

He added, “I don’t know what it is. We don’t band together, maybe? Other religions, frankly, they’re banding together and they’re using it. The power we have, somehow we have to unify, we have to band together."
