Trump will become the first sitting US president to address the Family Research Council's Values Voter Summit, making it his third appearance in the 12 years of the forum.

At last year's event, Trump eulogized Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia and conservative activist Phyllis Schlafly, both of whom were vocal opponents of LGBT rights and promised attendees that as president he would repeal the Johnson Amendment, the 1954 change in the USA tax code introduced by then-Senator Lyndon B. Johnson that prohibits tax-exempt organizations, mostly churches, from endorsing or opposing candidates for elected office.

The president made an appearance at the convention previous year, but he was then only a presidential nominee.
