Donald Trump closed out his remarks at the Values Voter Summit today by once again doing his best imitation of a pious and committed Christian in an effort to appeal to the Religious Right activists who had gathered for the conference.
After heaping praise upon the late Phyllis Schlafly, whose last name he mispronounced as “Chafly,” Trump really started to pour on the God talk.
“We’re all equal and we all come from same Creator,” Trump said. “There’s a biblical verse that I’ve often read and I want to repeat it again because I think it is so important to what we’re trying to achieve right now for our country. It’s from 1 John: 4: No one has ever seen God, but if we love one another, God lives in us and His love is made complete in us.”
“So true,” Trump said. “So True.”
“Imagine what our country could accomplish if we started working together as one people, under one God, saluting one flag,” Trump concluded, apparently anticipating a future in which every American, regardless of religion, is required to worship Jesus Christ.
