While talking about religion and its importance he said that, When you can’t talk about it, when you push it to the background, you push it aside or pretend it’s not part of the process of analysis, you’re taking away one of the fundamental elements of human nature, right, that we’re all made in the image of God and that drives how people think about their lives, their families, all the things that matter and we hold most dear. U.S will always support to maximize religious freedom for every human being all across the world, he said.
