TRUMP blasted the Democratic National Convention and Joe Biden after the phrase “Under God” was omitted from the Pledge of Allegiance twice.
“At Biden’s convention, they decried America as a wicked, sinful nation, destined for a fate of doom and despair,” Trump raged. “They even removed the words ‘Under God’ from the Pledge of Allegiance – twice.
“The far-left maniacs supporting Joe Biden are burning flags and chanting ‘America was never great.’ “But we know the truth: America is the most Exceptional Nation on earth, and our destiny is blessed by God!”
But over the course of four nights, the DNC’s main program included the phrase in the Pledge of Allegiance, with Biden’s grandchildren saying it on the first night.
A diverse group of Americans said it on the second night – including the phrase “under God” – while Cedric Richmond Jr, who is the son of Rep Cedric Richmond of Louisiana, said it on night four, and also included the words.
Meanwhile, Trump’s Democratic rival – who is a practicing Catholic – continues to top recent polls. But so too did Hillary Clinton before Trump’s 2016 victory.
