Pelosi and others on her party wants to see President Trump Taxes, but has anyone ask Congress and senators to show thiers ? We knew Trump was a Millioniare before becoming POTUS. And he gives his Salary away,


Religious Liberty

Governments should not discriminate against individuals, organizations or small businesses because of their belief that marriage is only a union of one man and one woman.
