President Donald Trump said people of faith around the world have faced terrible hardship of late. Trump said that violence and terrorism against people of all faiths must end, and that “all civilized nations must join together in this effort.”

Trump spoke on Wednesday to faith leaders at a White House dinner in honor of the National Day of Prayer, an event that takes place on Thursday.

Trump paid respects to Jewish-Americans killed and wounded last week at the Chabad of Poway synagogue in California. He also recalled the attacks on Christians in Sri Lanka last Easter and on Muslims in New Zealand the month before.

He also cited the burning of three black churches in Louisiana and last year’s shooting spree at a Pittsburgh synagogue.
