President Donald Trump called the 2020 Democratic National Convention “the darkest and angriest and gloomiest convention” in U.S. history.
“They spent four straight days attacking America as racist and a horrible country that must be redeemed,” Trump said, according to The Christian Post.
Trump, speaking at the 2020 Council for National Policy meeting last week, also added if former vice president Joe Biden is elected, “China will own our country.”
“Where Joe Biden sees American darkness, I see American greatness,” the president added. “We’ve seen heroic doctors and nurses racing into action to save lives. We’ve seen first responders helping strangers in need. We’ve seen the passage of historic legislation to save 50 million American jobs. We’ve mobilized American industry like never before.”
The 2020 Democratic National Convention ended Thursday.
According to reports, during at least two public meeting at the DNC, speakers omitted the phrase “under God” from the reciting of the Pledge of Allegiance.
In the Muslim Delegates & Allies Assembly web meeting, the moderator did not say “under God” in the pledge. Then during the LGBTQ Caucus Meeting, the speaker also did not say “under God” during the pledge.
“It’s an attack on religion. Did you see the man that got up and sang a very, very special phrase from a very, very special thing?” Trump said. “And he left the word ‘God’ out and I was watching, and I said, ‘Oh, he must have made a mistake.’ I didn’t think that he left it out. I thought maybe he — you know, that can happen. Maybe he made a mistake.
“He didn’t make a mistake. That’s where they’re coming from. He left the word ‘God’ out. And that’s where they’re coming from.”
However, in her acceptance speech for the Democratic Party’s vice-presidential nomination, Sen. Kamala Harris referenced 2 Corinthians 5:7, saying she was committed “to the Word that teaches me to walk by faith and not by sight.”
