Lou Holtz: Biden is Catholic 'in name only,' no stronger advocate for 'unborn' than Trump

'The Biden-Harris ticket is the most radically pro-abortion campaign in history. They and other politicians are 'Catholics in Name Only' and abandon innocent lives. President Trump protects those lives,' Holtz says

Former Notre Dame coach Lou Holtz said at the Republican National Convention that "nobody has been a stronger advocate for the unborn" than President Trump.

Holtz said one of the main reasons he trusts Trump as a leader is because he protects the unborn. 

"When a leader tells you something, you’ve got to be able to count on it. That’s President Trump. He says what he means, he means what he says, and he’s done what he said he would do at every single turn. One of the important reasons he has my trust is because nobody has been a stronger advocate for the unborn than President Trump," he said Wednesday at the convention. 

"The Biden-Harris ticket is the most radically pro-abortion campaign in history. They and other politicians are 'Catholics in Name Only' and abandon innocent lives. President Trump protects those lives. I trust President Trump," Holtz continued.

"There are people today like politicians, professors and protesters and of course President Trump’s naysayers in the media who like to blame others for problems," Holtz said. "They don’t have pride in our country. And because they no longer ask, 'What can I do for my country, only 'What the country should be doing for them,' they don’t have pride in themselves – that’s wrong," he also said. 

Holtz argued that Trump has demonstrated that he cares about people "through his prison reform, advocating for school choice, and welfare reform that he wants Americans from all walks of life to have the opportunity to succeed and live the American dream."

Holtz said he served as an Army officer with many other great Americans "embraced their responsibility to our country."

"I am so proud of their sacrifice and the opportunity it has provided for so many millions," he said. "America remains the land of opportunity no matter what the other side says or believes."
