Trump targets IRS rule on churches

President Donald Trump signed an executive order targeting a rarely enforced IRS rule that says religious organizations and other non-profits that endorse political candidates risk losing their tax-exempt status.

As he marked the National Day of Prayer at the White House Thursday, Trump signed the order asking the IRS to use "maximum enforcement discretion" over the rarely enforced regulation, known as Johnson Amendment.

"This financial threat against the faith community is over," Trump said. "No one should be censoring sermons or targeting pastors."
