"We want to really point out that Little Sisters of the Poor and people of faith live by a attractive calling and we will not let bureaucrats take away that calling or those rights", Trump said Friday.

President Donald Trump will speak at the 2017 Values Voter Summit.

The annual political conference hosted by the Family Research Council brings together evangelical voters who were key to Mr. Trump's election win previous year.

Trump also pledged that as president he would fight for "American family values", a phrase used by some social conservatives to signal their opposition to LGBT rights. "If I'm president, you will see 'Merry Christmas" in department stores, believe me, believe me".

The new policy unveiled last Friday is expanding the protections to any nonprofit group, non-publicly traded company, or higher education institution with religious or moral objections - and making the third-part provision optional for groups with "sincerely held" religious beliefs.

The good news for everyone is that we still have 73 shopping days left for people to go around and say "Merry Christmas" to their hearts desire.

Mr Trump mentioned his nomination of Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court, claiming Mr Gorsuch is in the mould of Justice Antonin Scalia, the conservative whose death in February 2016 created the vacancy.

Trump also pivoted to another promise he made on the campaign trail. "Bureaucrats think they can run your lives, overrule your values, meddle in your faith and tell you how to live, what to say and how to pray". He adds his hope that Congress will give the American people a Christmas gift by passing his tax cut proposal. "We're saying Merry Christmas again".

Other people who are scheduled to attend are, White House chief strategist Steve Bannon, presidential counselor Kellyanne Conway, and former National Security Advisor Sebastian Gorka, House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, Vicky Hartzler, Roy Moore of Alabama and reality stars Phil Robertson and his son Alan Robertson (Duck Dynasty).
