Conservatives are frustrated by President Trump’s religious liberty order | TheHill

Some conservatives are frustrated by President Trump’s new religious liberty order, saying it is dramatically scaled back from what they were expecting and doesn’t enact the protections he promised during the campaign. At a Rose Garden ceremony Thursday, Trump declared that the “threat against the faith community is over.” “It was looking like you’d never get here folks, but you got here,” Trump told the dozens of faith leaders the White House invited to the ceremony, which took place on the National Day of Prayer. Ahead of the signing, religious conservatives hoped the order would resolve a number of issues they say conflict with their faiths, including LGBT anti-discrimination protections and ObamaCare regulations on contraception in employer-provided insurance. But after reviewing the text of the much-anticipated order, prominent conservatives described it as useless at best and harmful at worst.
