Trump Declares Himself a Non-Denominational Christian
The Republican party frequently paints itself as the party of Christianity and religion. It is pretty clear, however, that Donald Trump is not a very religious person. The president rarely attends church services, preferring to spend his weekends on the golf course.
Trump doesn’t talk about his faith very often and when he does, he seems to be out of touch. During a recent interview with Religious News Service, the president talked extensively about his faith. Trump told reporters that he is no longer a Presbyterian but now identifies as a “non-denominational Christian.”
Trump elaborated, “Though I was confirm.”ed at a Presbyterian church as a child, I now consider myself to be a non-denominational Christian.”
The president continued, “[my parents] taught me the importance of faith and prayer from a young age. Melania and I have gotten to visit some amazing churches and meet with great faith leaders from around the world. During the unprecedented COVID-19 outbreak, I tuned into several virtual church services and know that millions of Americans did the same.”
Trump also referenced his Christianity when talking about his recent bout with COVID. “There were miracles coming down from heaven.’ I meant it — Melania and I are very thankful to God for looking out for our family and re-turning us to good health.”
