(Worthy News) - Vice President Mike Pence assured conservative Christian activists and donors Saturday night that the Trump administration is still following through on its promise to provide direct assistance to Iraqi and Syrian Christians despite complaints that some religious minorities groups have not seen the promised aid.
About seven months ago, Pence first declared a major policy change in which the U.S. government would bypass the United Nations and provide direct humanitarian assistance to persecuted Christians and other religious minorities that faced genocide at the hands of the Islamic State.
It was a promise he made while giving a keynote speech last October at a solidarity dinner attended by dozens of prominent human rights and international religious freedom activists who had spoken out about the lack of aid religious minority communities were receiving from the United Nations and the international community for their efforts to rebuild their destroyed ancient communities.
