Donald Trump makes history again—this time, as the first U.S. president to address the March for Rally on the pro-life movement, on his visit to the National Mall on Friday.

His speech comes just in time ahead of the November election in a bid to court religious voters amid fighting off impeachment charges against him in the Senate. Trump intends to address the crowd at a venue that isn’t too far away from the U.S Capitol.

Confirming the same, Trump tweeted, “See you on Friday,” adding“ Big Crowd!,” Trump’s response came in the form of a retweet of the tweet made by the group—of the upcoming march.

The move was lauded by March for Life President Jeanne Mancini, who hailed Trump and his administration as “consistent champions for life.”

“We are deeply honored to welcome President Trump to the 47th annual March for Life,” she said in a statement. “He will be the first president in history to attend and we are so excited for him to experience in person how passionate our marchers are about life and protecting the unborn,” she added.

About 100,000 people attended last year's march. And a bigger turnout is expected this year.

The announcement of Trump's participation in the March was made official on the 47th anniversary of Roe v. Wade - the landmark Supreme Court case that legalized abortion in the United States.

The March for Life was conjured up in 1974, the year after the Roe v. Wade decision came into being.

Things didn’t start off on a smooth note, as the pro-life movement was initially doubtful of Trump’s intentions when he began his presidential bid. But, that’s all in the past, as the movement has currently made efforts to embrace Trump’s active participation.

After last year's march, Trump displayed support for a teenager from Covington Catholic High School in Kentucky who slapped a defamation suit against the Washington Post after a report surfaced of Nick Sandmann— who was wearing red 'Make America Great Again' hat—being harassed during the march made the rounds.

“Go get them Nick. Fake News!,” Trump tweeted in support of the teenager’s act.
