Eduardo Verástegui called Trump the 'best pro-life president ever.'
WASHINGTON, D.C., July 15, 2020 (LifeSiteNews) ― A pro-life Mexican movie star has given an icon of Our Lady of Guadalupe to President Donald Trump.
Eduardo Verástegui, star of the 2006 film Bella, was at the White House last week with other leaders in the Spanish-speaking community for the signing of the Executive Order on the Hispanic Prosperity Initiative.
Verástegui, who is a practicing Catholic, told EWTN White House correspondent Owen Jensen that he had brought Trump a meaningful gift.
I brought the president a beautiful image of Our Lady of Guadalupe because not only is she the icon of the pro-life movement, but at the same time she is the symbol of unity and racial healing, Verástegui said.
I just want to remind everyone who supports, and is, pro-life to pray for a pro-life leader.
Verástegui added that Trump is the best pro-life president ever in American history.
During the July 9 visit to the White House, Verástegui thanked President Trump for his pro-life leadership.
Thank you for your leadership in defending the unborn. As you know, Mexicans the majority of Mexicans support the right to life. And thank you for defending life in America and in Latin America. Without a doubt, you are the best, the greatest pro-life President in the history of the United States. Thank you for that, he said.

“De fruitful and multiply.” So simple, so neglected.
I didn’t expect Trump to be so good on pro-life issues. But he has been.
The president’s staff needs a fluent Spanish speaker.
Make sure that regalo (gift) is not named after Santa Muerte;
aka Patron Saint of Death. Santa Muerte is a favored icon of some gang members.
Eduardo Verástegui is an excellent actor and a great defender of the Right to Life of innocent little preborn babies.
“Bella” is a beautiful movie.
Everyone should watch it.
You are SO right! Within its simplicity, great characters, and slow, relaxed pace lie powerful themes regarding life, family, compassion, responsibility, right and wrong... the list goes on. I have seen it many times, and it never, ever, fails to move me. Everyone should indeed watch it.
There are many miracles ascribed to the image of the Virgin of Guadalupe. The simple presence of the image is powerful.
May Pres. Trump be blessed by them in Jesus’ name, amen.
And some cartels.
I believe someday that he will convert to Catholicism.
Nobody is going to confuse the two images.
