Dear Mr. VP,
You’ve had me all over websites I normally try to avoid. Today, the website of CBN: the Christian Broadcasting Network. Home of Pat Robertson, natch.
Anyway, you did an interview with CBN News, because of course you did.
Well I think President Trump has a heart of gratitude for evangelical Christians in this country. I have to tell you, the sweetest words the President and I ever hear, and we hear them a lot, are when people grab us by the hand and say, ‘we’re praying for you.’
I’ve been with this President in the Oval Office with religious leaders. When people have asked to pause for a moment of prayer and the President readily embraces that. I think he’s always very humbled and grateful by the support of believers.
But, let me be clear: President Trump is a believer and so am I.
And I love all people, rich or poor, but in those particular positions, I just don’t want a poor person.
— Donald Trump
And Jesus wept.
