Donald Trump is finding religion. Or at least, religion is finding its way into his remarks and his campaign’s rhetoric to an unprecedented extent.
The president celebrated the National Day of Prayer at the White House and he said the Almighty had helped him persevere through the ordeal of Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.
“People say, ‘How do you get through that whole stuff? How do you get through those witch hunts and everything else?’” Trump said, turning to Vice President Pence. “And you know what we do, Mike? We just do it, right? And we think about God.”
In a variation on his claims about a “war on Christmas,” Trump also claimed that Americans are referring to the Divine more frequently.
