Donald Trump promises to cherish and defend religious liberties...in a campaign pitch to social conservatives.

FOX's Jared Halpern has more from Washington:

Donald Trump sympathized with Christians gathered at the Values Voter Summit here in Washington, arguing they've been abandoned by politicians and demeaned in the media:

(Trump) "So let me state this right up front: a Trump Administration, our Christian heritage will be cherished, protected, defended."

Trump is pushing for the end of a 1950's era law prohibiting religious non-profits from endorsing candidates and warning against Supreme Court justices nominated by Democrat Hillary Clinton.
