Trump made history recently being the first president to address the March for Life demonstrations in person on Friday. In Trump's speech, the president said, "Unborn children have never had a stronger defender in the White House.”

His appearance at March for Life has been lauded by pro-life activists as well as the Christian community. Jeffress himself spoke positively about the president's participation during his interview with Dobbs on Friday. 

"What the president is doing it's certainly the right thing to do morally, he talked today about unborn children, reflecting the majesty of God," he said.
