  • WATCH LIVE: Donald Trump and others speak at 2017 Voters Value Summit

Trump entered the packed room to a standing ovation and cheers, pumped his fist to chants of "USA", and then thanked and encouraged a receptive crowd at the Values Voter Summit who played an important role in helping elect him president.

Mr Trump told reporters in the Oval Office this week it was "frankly disgusting the way the press is able to write whatever they want to write, and people should look into it", criticising the "tremendously dishonest press".

The FRC would like to see the Stonewall Monument flattened altogether, having expressed such a desire, which the Trump administration is looking into as well, according to the GCN:"The new administration is now reviewing presidential designations made in the recent past under the Antiquities Act, though no statement has been made about the Stonewall National Monument's status".

The FRC announced Tuesday that Trump was going to address the VVS, the billionaire real estate mogul being the first sitting president to do so in its history.

But Trump also maintained his commitment to "religious freedom", citing his executive order on the issue in May that resulted subsequent guidance from U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

"In the last 10 months we have followed through on one promise after another", Trump said.

Among the many braggadocios claims made be the president in his keynote address, Trump said his administration is "substantially ahead of schedule". And something I've said so much during the last two years, but I'll say it again as we approach the end of the year.

Trump also suggested that he was responsible for the Supreme Court decision won by the Little Sisters for the Poor. "You know we're getting near that lovely Christmas season that people don't talk about anymore. They don't use the word "Christmas" because it's not politically correct", he said, explaining that politically correct culture has made it hard to celebrate the holiday.

"You go to department stores and they'll say Happy New Year and they'll say other things", he added.

Reports suggest that Trump's appearance at the summit was his sure-fire way of strengthening ties with his evangelical Christian voter base. "Well, guess what? We're saying Merry Christmas again".

"One of the promises I made you was that I would come back", he said during his remarks.
