“I think President Trump has a heart of gratitude for evangelical Christians in this country. I have to tell you, the sweetest words the president and I ever hear, and we hear them a lot, are when people grab us by the hand and say, ‘we’re praying for you,'” Pence told CBN News’ David Brody Sunday.
