...President Donald Trump's campaign is ramping up attention to Catholic voters heading into the 2020 election season.
...The president has focused significant attention on Evangelical voters but now recognizes that he must devote similar attention to Catholic voters if he wishes to secure the 2020 presidential election, Politico reports.
...The campaign is preparing to launch a "Catholics for Trump" coalition, and Trump will reportedly be speaking at the National Catholic Prayer Breakfast in March, where Mulvaney said last year that Catholicism was driving policy in the Trump administration.
...A senior Trump campaign official said the campaign's outreach to Catholics will lean on the Knights of Columbus, a Catholic international fraternal organization.
..."Catholic voters, like all other voters, have opinions on issues of immigration and trade, and the more people we have engaging in conversations about the president's record, the better," a senior Trump campaign official said.
