Donald Trump has accidentally told an audience of global religious leaders that America’s greatest accomplishments include the “abolition of civil rights” during the National Prayer Breakfast.
“Since the founding of our nation, many of our greatest strides, from gaining our independence to abolition of civil rights, to extending the vote for women, have been led by people of faith and started in prayer,” the president said on Thursday. “When we open our hearts to faith we fill our hearts with love.”
The president attended the breakfast in Washington, where speakers addressed the level of division in the country and what one described as a “fracturing of the American family”.
I think this is less an accident and more wishful thinking on Trump’s part.
I am sure that he would love it if civil rights were abolished in this country because then those uppity brown folks would not keep acting as if they were his equal.
Trump also gave a shout out to Mike Pence’s wife for taking a teaching job at a Christian school with a strict anti-LGBTQ policy.
So yeah the entire breakfast was all about unity.
You know if you were a straight white Christian Republican that is.
