Donald Trump to Utah: You Can Help Make America Great Again

As time hastens forward to the 2016 presidential election, members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and the highly conservative state of Utah has become a hotbed of discussion. Deseret News, the Church’s official news organization, has invited the major party nominees to speak directly to the people of Utah. So far, all of the candidates have done their best to appeal to Latter-day Saints while doing so.

Earlier this month, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and third-party nominee Gary Johnson have shared their views. Now it’s Donald Trump’s turn. During the primaries, Utah was one of the few conservative states to vote decidedly against Trump and LDS politician Mitt Romney has spoken out against a Trump presidency.

Unlike the other nominees, Trump makes no mention of the Church in his op-ed and largely highlights what he believes are the key differences between him and Clinton. You can read his full and exclusive letter with Deseret News here.

“Earning support and trust from the voters of Utah is a top priority for me,” Trump writes. “It is why I am pleased to have the endorsement of so many great leaders like Gov. Gary Herbert and U.S. Sen. Orrin Hatch, among others. As the people of the Beehive State know, the result of this election could have catastrophic consequences for our businesses, religious institutions, military and families, or it could unleash remarkable growth, safety and prosperity for generations to come.”

“A lot of things are said in political campaigns, but through all the noise, I want you to know two simple truths about how I will govern as your president: I will be honest with you, regardless of the political consequences, and I will wake up every morning and do everything in my power to make America great again for all Americans.”
