President Trump exhorted one of the Little Sisters of the Poor to join him during a Rose Garden ceremony with a hearty, "Come on up here, sister!"

Trump was signing an executive order to protect churches and other religious organizations that engage in political advocacy from the IRS.

The Little Sisters of the Poor were at the center of a lawsuit objecting to the Obamacare requirement to pay for contraception.

Surrounded by clergy members, Trump also announced during the Wednesday ceremony that he will make his first foreign trip later this month to Israel, the Vatican and Saudi Arabia.
