The attacks at houses of worship seem to be getting worse instead of better. But much to the delight of his cheering supporters, President Donald Trump isn’t staying quiet about it.
On Wednesday, President Trump called for an end to the turmoil: “Violence and terrorism against people of all faiths must end and it must end now.”
Being Better Neighbors
President Trump held a small summit meeting at the White House on Wednesday with about 100 leaders of various faiths.
In addition to the president, First Lady Melania Trump was also there, as was Vice President Mike Pence and his wife, Karen.
In his address, the president specifically mentioned the most recent shooting at a California synagogue near San Diego.
After sending “love and prayers” to the victims and their families, Trump got down to business, listing the various attacks that have happened at churches, synagogues, and mosques not only here in the United States but abroad as well.
He called for unity among all faiths to combat the evil and hate that is being waged among God-fearing people.
“When we embrace the fullness of our faiths, we become better friends, better neighbors, better citizens, and better people,” Trump said.
Keep in mind: this is the president that who Democrats have characterized as a racist, bigot, and hate monger.
Recognizing the Evil
For far too long, religiously charged attacks have been politicized by our politicians.
The moment an attack occurs, Democrats go for the Second Amendment.
They also somehow find a way to blame Trump for the evil that is within these individuals, saying his rhetoric caused these individuals to lash out and kill others.
Where was that blame when President Barack Obama sat in the Oval Office and presided over a country that saw more mass shootings on his watch than at any other time in our history?
We cannot beat this evil until we recognize it.
Until that happens, these attacks will continue — and the blood will be on the hands of Democrats like Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer who continue to lead their party in opposition of Trump.
